UTILIZATION

Despite its shape, this guitar has been designed in a spirit of modernity. point of mahogany and micro alnico, but maple, linden, some resinator and a good little set of micro ceramic magnet. handle extremely flat and comfortable for hard shredder, a violin very well made. finish more than adequate except for some details like the contours of the microphones.

SOUNDS

very versatile guitar.
even if we can blame a little too much shine to microphones, it is still surprising to see such a good mic on a guitar to price.
this guitar is more surprising in its full. everything goes without becoming rough when you push the gain generously. the attack of the strings affects well, and the microphones splittage us into a universe far more stratoidien.
brief ... the level it's all good!

OVERALL OPINION

that is what is perverse to want a pretty Swedish fiddling when you're guitarist? no! simply put his hands on it to be convinced!
the Hagstrom ultra suede has it all, a variety of attractive colors, great design, good finish (but not too much), light, easy to play, and excellent micro kit. all for about € 400
