Hagstrom H8-II 8-String Bass - Black Gloss




In Stock

Most people invariably think of Hagstrom when talking about an 8-string bass. That's because Hagstrom was the first brand to mass-produce an 8-string version: the H8. In the late 1960s, countless beat and hard rock icons experimented extensively and used its unique sound as the backbone for psychedelic and classic songs.

Hagstrom H8-II 8-String Bass - Black Gloss 

A legend of the bass world. The Hagstrom H8-II 8-String Bass is a legendary model, reimagined and brought into the 21st century with a wealth of modern features. It gives you all of that singing, rich 8-string bass tone that Hagstrom first made famous with this very model. But it's not stuck in the past. A specially designed Resinator fingerboard creates sharp, precise tone at every frequency.

It's also been loaded with first-class electronics. A pair of powerful DynaRail humbuckers gives you a deep, dominating bass tone that'll really make your low-end basslines bellow. Want to play further up the scale? Not a problem. Push-pull coil splitting means you can quickly change from that rich humbucking tone to sharper, bright single-coil sound in a flash. Get yourself a bass that gives you everything.
