Hagstrom HB-8 8 String Bass Guitar, Black
Hagstrom HB-8 8 String Bass Guitar, BlackDetails
The Hagstrom HB-8 8 String Bass Guitar is an upgraded version of the original H8, the world's first mass-produced 8 string bass. Featuring a Mahogany body and Maple neck, along with Hagstrom's unique Resinator™ wood fretboard, the HB-8 delivers a deep, expressive tone with a distinct vintage flavour. Powerful Hagstrom Dyna Rail humbuckers translate the body's natural resonance into a thunderous bass tone, while the gorgeous Black finish and matching Black pickguard ensure that the HB-8 looks every bit as good as it sounds.

Hagstrom Dyna Rail Pickups
Made with high quality Alnico V magnets, the two Hagstrom Dyna Rail humbucker pickups deliver a fat, punchy vintage tone. The rotary pickup selector switch offers six different configurations, allowing you to easily find your perfect tone for virtually any style. In positions 4-6, both coils of the selected pickup(s) are activated, giving you a full, thick and resonant sound. However, in positions 1-3, the pickups are split to activate the outer coils only, yielding a slightly thinner and quieter tone with a clear, bright high end. See below for the full list of pickup configurations.
