The masterstroke - every inch a jazz masterpiece.
The Hagstrom Jazz Model HJ-500 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar features a contoured maple body and maple set neck. The Hagstrom patented H-Expander truss rod provides tension at either end and runs the entire length of the neck. The rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for very low action and a thin neck.
Another Hagstrom exclusive, the resinator fretboard is an extraordinary, homogeneous wood composite that maintains a strong fundamental harmonic and eliminates wolf tones. It offers the articulate sound of high quality ebony but with more consistency and durability. Silky smooth, reliable, and fast.
Two Hagstrom HJ-50 humbuckers, each with volume and tone, combined with the hollowbody resonance, give the HJ-500 incredible power and range of tone.
The self-lubricating graphite composite nut is much harder than bone or plastic resulting in more string vibration through the neck. Tuning is also improved and string binding is eliminated by self-lubrication.
A long travel Tune-o-matic-style bridge and trapeze tailpiece further increase tone, sustain, and intonation quality.
18:1 Gear Ratio machine heads ensure fully accurate tuning.
The high-grade polyester finish is hard, smooth, and more dense than polyurethane. The finish on the HJ-500 looks amazing and provides excellent protection and sonic performance. Case sold separately.
