The Hagstrom Metropolis-C is a revolutionary hybrid of a single-cutaway body, infused with a bolt-on neck, borrowing its double Custom 58'C humbucking pickups from the revolutionary Hagstrom Viking Baritone, an instrument which has quickly taken itself into the spotlight since its first introduction to the music world.
The Metropolis's resonant and lightweight body will satisfy those that demand a comfortable and versatile instrument that will "lighten the load" off a working musician's back, while allowing fatter and lively tones at the flick of a switch.
Each pickup provides a clear and energized tone, perfect string separation, distinguished harmonics, as each component contributes a special ingredient in submitting the Metropolis's true and extraordinary tone. The Hagstrom Metropolis-C will tantalize players searching for prominent humbucking tones that will provide detailed sparkle and an extended range of harmonics.
This guitar is in overall good shape. The pickguard appears to be sunfaded. The plastic is still on the pickguard, so there is no wear, just discoloration. The electronics work as they should. There is no wear to the body. In-store purchase comes with a hardshell case.
