Hagstrom Guitars, a classic brand popularized by artists such as Frank Zappa, Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, and David Bowie, has announced that its full line of electric guitars and basses is now available on Amazon.com for online purchase. Amazon, the largest single retail site on the Internet, does a thriving business in musical instruments and pro audio gear. Amazon will feature the full Hagstrom line, including the popular Viking, Swede and Super Swede models.
“Amazon’s commitment promises musicians from every corner of the continent fast access to the full breadth of popular models and colors of Hagstrom’s unique product line,” notes Chris Griffiths, Vice President of American Music & Sound, Hagstrom’s USA distributor. “We are very excited to be online with Amazon!"
Hagstrom guitars and basses have an avid following among musicians and collectors, who admire them for their classic stylings, versatile sound, and great playability. Current artists who play Hagstrom include Pat Smear (Foo Fighters, the Germs); Dweezil Zappa (Zappa Plays Zappa), Ryland Blackinton (Cobra Starship), Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo (Gym Class Heroes), Forrest Klein (Hellogoodbye), Robert Morris (The Hush Sound) and more.
Perhaps Mark Thomas Kluepfel from Action Action sums it up best expressing that his Viking “is a great and mighty beast that delvers me over the top fuzz. Though it also carries finesse with its comfortable neck, capable of delivering a warm and round clean tone. The Viking has quickly become my favorite guitar due to its genius ability to be extremely versatile. I am a believer!”
