Hagstrom HJ-500 Guitar (Additional Piezo Pickup)


A Stunning guitar, in excellent condition with the added bonus of a Piezo pickup with built in controls. The work was completed by a professional Luthier and provides huge versatility to an already versatile guitar.

The Hagstrom HJ500 is a very versatile guitar from playing some classic songs, playing your favourite jazz songs and scales. This guitar has a Spruce top and a flamed maple back and sides to give it a more warm and bright sound. It has a set neck to give it a more cleaner feel so you can glide across this guitar more smoothly.

This hollow body has two Hagstrom HJ-50 Humbuckers to give it a classic sound.

To Top it all off and give it that classic look, it has a Viking Trapeze Stringholder Tailpiece Bridge to give it the classic Hagstrom Touch

Here is what Hagstrom has to say about this guitar: In 1969 the legendary luthier James “Jimmy” D’Aquisto began a cooperation with Hagstrom that was to last nearly 10 years. Hagstrom’s hollow-body archtop jazz guitar series is the result, and the master’s craft is unmistakably written all over these fine instruments. In fact, the asymmetrical headstock used for these guitars and now used for most current Hagstrom models, was Jimmy’s design. Immaculately clean, well rounded jazz tones for single note patterns and walking-bass chordal comping are the HJ500’s home turf, although it is fully capable of taking a different route into rock-oriented soundscapes when necessary.
