Hagstrom Metropolis-C w. HSC
Affordable elegance with a single-cutaway body, bolt-on neck and dual humbucking pickups.
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 particular Hagstrom is in excellent playing condition. The pick guard looks smokey and aged, however it still has the new guitar plastic film protector on it! There are a few very minor pin- scratches on the back and sides but are hardly visible without the right light. It comes with a real nice form fitted hard shell case with a neatly patterned black velvet-like material on the inside.
