    Product Description

    Take the Hagstrom HB-8 to the front of the stage and enjoy the limelight! Hagstrom first introduced their 8-string bass in 1967 and bassists embraced it. 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.

    All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

    Hagstrom Machine Heads
    Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.

    Resinator Wood
    Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or “wolf tones” sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander truss rod, Resinator wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”.
