A collaboration between the design team at Hagstrom and the Swedish band Ghost, Fantomen (Swedish for “The Phantom”) transports Hagstrom’s legendary playability and technical excellence into a new, edgier realm. The collaboration started with an elegantly asymmetrical solid-mahogany body to which was joined a mahogany neck using a classic mortise-and-tenon neck joint system. Of course, since it’s a Hagstrom, the Fantomen uses the H-Expander® truss rod and Resinator® fingerboard, providing the ultimate in playing surface stability and optimal tonal enhancement. Together these components create an incredibly stable, resonant and responsive sonic foundation.

The Hagstrom Fantomen relies on a thin 1.25” body style and a larger-than-average 25.5” scale to provide sharper attack and sustain while remaining surprisingly lightweight and excellently balanced. Working with Swedish pickup guru Johan Lundgren, the Hagstrom design team used a No. 2 humbucker in the neck and a No. 5 in the bridge, resulting in an immense expressive range that meets the needs of even the most extreme musical styles.
