Are Hagstrom Swede's any good? I've never played one with that good of a setup, I thought it wasn't worth me spending money on it and I have a friend who says they're amazing and better than my modded Epiphone SG and modded Epiphone Flying V (I have Iommi pickups in the SG and Zakk Wylde pickups in the V, it's awesome!). So, are they any good?

Hagstrom is good. I just dislike their fat horn.

elvis used a hagstrom in the 68 comeback show.
just watch jailhouse rock, blue suede shoes and baby what you want me to do.
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'
I think Swedes and Super Swedes are ugly, but Ultra Swedes are great.
I played one once and fell in love with it.

I have a Select Swede. May not be quite as good as a Top of the line Gibson, but then, it's a quarter of the price. Pretty much blows away the Epis though.

Real heavy bitch though, but far more sustain that a LP. The Selects are more gresch like with the neck, because of all the extra wood, better suited as a rhythm guitar, but pretty hard to top in that regard. In terms of what you get for the price, haven't found anything better, so I guess I really like them.
