Time for another amazing deal on a quality guitar, this time on a Hagstrom Swede LTD Black Dark King! If you are looking for a single-cut guitar with two humbuckers and a dark, dark soul, you might have just found your next axe.
Hagstrom Swede LTD Black Dark King
The Swede LTD Black Dark King is Hagstrom’s take on the classic dual humbucker, single cut design. This version comes in a cool black finish with matching black nickel hardware. Loaded with a set of Lundgren Design humbuckers consisting of a #05 AlNiCo 5 in the bridge and a #02 AlNiCo 2 in the neck, this guitar has you covered for all those classic single cut tones. With this setup, it will serve you blues and classic rock all day long. But it also has a coil split option to give you some single-coil sounds. The volume controls incorporate treble bleeds to prevent loss of volume and top end when you dial them down. Nice.
This guitar has a mahogany body with a carved maple top and a 24.75 inch scale length set-in mahogany neck. Loaded with 22 medium jumbo frets and mother-of-pearl block inlays the fretboard is made of “resinator”. Come again? According to Hagstrom, it’s a pressure-laminated wood composite material with a denser and more stable structure than standard woods.
The neck is a Slim D-profile and has Hagstrom’s lightweight, stable “H-Expander” truss rod system. The Swede LTD Black Dark King has a Tune-O-Matic bridge with a Hagstrom Sustain Block tailpiece, a GraphTech Black Tusq XL nut and a set of Hagstrom die cast precise tuners.
The deal price is only £366, which is a full one third off the recommended retail price. That’s a bit of a bargain for these specifications on a single cut guitar.
