Hagstrom Jazz Model Hl-550 Hollowbody Electric Guitar Gloss Natural MahoganyToday’s featured guitar is the Hagstrom Jazz Model Hl-550 Hollowbody Electric Guitar Gloss Natural Mahogany. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The Hagstrom Jazz Model HL-550 Hollowbody Electric Guitar features a mahogany body and set mahogany neck. The Hagstrom patented H-Expander truss rod provides tension at either end and runs the entire length of the neck. The rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for very low action and a thin neck.

Another Hagstrom exclusive is the resinator fretboard, an extraordinary, homogeneous wood composite that maintains a strong fundamental harmonic and eliminates wolf tones. It offers the articulate sound of high quality ebony but with more consistency and durability. Silky smooth, reliable and fast.

The Hagstrom Jazz HL-550 Guitar has a single floating custom HF-50 humbucker, combined with the resonant hollowbody to provide lots of warm, rich tone.

The self-lubricating graphite composite nut is much harder than bone or plastic resulting in more string vibration through the neck. Tuning is also improved and string binding is eliminated by self-lubrication.

A long travel Tune-O-Matic-style bridge and trapeze tailpiece further increase tone, sustain, and intonation quality.

18:1 Gear Ratio machine heads ensure fully accurate tuning.

A high-grade polyester finish that is hard, smooth, and more dense than polyurethane. The finish on the Hagstrom HL-550 electric guitar looks great and provides excellent protection and sonic performance.

Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Faded Brown Mahogany Chrome Hardware

Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Faded Brown Mahogany Chrome HardwareToday’s featured guitar is the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar Faded Brown Mahogany Chrome Hardware. Below is the complete description of the guitar.

The arrival of the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar in 1983 offered guitarists all the essential elements of a Les Paul Standard, including a carved top and humbucking pickups. Its simple yet elegant design quickly helped it become the most popular model in the Les Paul Series. Cutting-yet-rich tone—the hallmark of the Les Paul—pours out of the 490R and 498T Alnico II magnet humbucker pickups, which are mounted on a carved maple top with a mahogany back. The faded finish models are equipped with BurstBucker Pro pickups and a mahogany top. The Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case (Faded and satin finish models come with a gig bag) and a limited lifetime warranty.Body and Finish A solid, carved maple top and chambered mahogany body give the Les Paul Studio the same tonewood combination that has been helping Les Paul Standards rock for nearly 60 years. And each of its four available nitrocellulose finishes makes for a stunning looking guitar, even while its no-frills approach eliminates body binding and pickguard. Mahogany is a medium-dense wood with excellent resonance and superior sustain, and it offers a rich, round, warm tone, but with plenty of high-end sheen and good mid-range presence. Add a solid maple top, and the guitar's tone is enhanced with added clarity, sustain and definition. The body's chambering also enhances its mellow acoustic resonance, and adds further air to the midrange content. Pickups Gibson's 498T and 490R pickups ("T" for treble, and "R" for rhythm) have the traditional characteristics of the original "Patent Applied For" pickups of the late 1950s, with a few upgrades. These pickups take advantage of wax potting, which does away with any air space inside the pickup, therefore lessening the chances of microphonic feedback. The result is a humbucker with the tonal characteristics of an original PAF, with a slight increase in upper mid-range response. The Gibson 498T bridge pickup is the 490R's ideal complement.Taking the 490R one step further, the 498T is wound a little hotter and also swaps the Alnico II magnet for an Alnico V, giving it more punch and greater emphasis on midrange and highs. The 490R/498T is one of the most versatile humbucking pickup sets available. In the neck position, the former yields juicy, warm vocal tones with outstanding clarity, while the latter in the bridge position excels at everything from bright jangle through a clean amp to wailing overdrive with near-infinite sustain through a high-gain amp. Selected together, the pair gives you everything from funky to greasy, depending upon amp and effects settings. Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
