What do you think about hagstrom guitars? I was quite curios when they started their new offensive last year and I must say that they have some really nice ones in their programm.

Never played one but they just look like Gibson rip-offs to me
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

They are excellent guitars.
I have a 71 Swede and I compared it to the new Swedes and there is no noticeable difference between them as far as sound and feel The only thing is, you are going to want to play it first to make sure you get a good one as they are now made in China.(Quality control).
The swede has an extra tone switch and the super swede comes with the coil spilt switch.
I also tried the F-200p And liked it very much.
YA GOTTA HIT IT ON THE ONE

The Ultra Swede seems pretty cool to me. We need more 25.5 scaled singlecuts.

Huge, super-duper extra fail... Only the Hagström Swede is Gibson-ish, and that's not even that close.

Hagströms are sweet.

Definatly not a Gibson rip off.
It is even said that hagström made the first electric guitar but it's not confirmed.

Mainly popular in scandinavia, too bad the rest of the world don't know em too good.

Judging by the look of those guitars, the Cold War period in Europe must have been a pretty flamboyantly gay time.
