Product Description

A unique instrument that will add a dynamic sound to the mix on stage or in the studio! Hagstrom’s 8-string bass quickly became a legend among bass-players since it was introduced in 1967 as the first production-scale instrument of its kind. Brought back to life as the HB-8, Hagstrom’s recreation of this legendary classic is designed to offer modern players access to classic 60’s sounds as well as the familiar bass tones of today. Equipped with Hagstrom’s H-Expander truss rod, the HB-8’s neck is thin and comfortable, yet incredibly stable and road-worthy for years of dependable use.

Pickups are Hagstrom’s own humbucking Dyna-Rails, and a six-way rotary pickup switch allows access to an inspiring kaleidoscope of tones. Take the Hagstrom HB-8 to the front of the stage and enjoy the limelight!

What is your opinion of this product?
While I agree this is an amazing bass, the description doesn't match the photo. The bass has slider switches, not a rotary knob. There's no tone control in the picture. Please clarify.

What is your opinion of this product?
This bass actually was used in many Hendrix recording's turning the bass into a double your riff killer.
