Hagstrom HB-4 Short Scale Bass reviewed in TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the November issue of the magazine features a review of the HB-4 Short Scale Bass guitar from Hagstrom. Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“The new HB-4 takes cue from the HB-8 model and the greatness of past decades, but at the same time incorporates what Hagstrom made us used to – a lot of innovations and improvements.”

“You can instantly hear the class of pickups created by Hagstrom and their successful connection with the rest of the elements – this guitar is all made to sound good.”

“Hagstrom HB-4 belongs to the vintage line and therefore reflects the design of good old days. It’s easy to imagine this instrument being used in indie rock, electro-rock, jazz or neo-soul. It is even more usable in the studio, and all of you should check that out yourselves.”
