Hagstrom H8-II Retroscape 8-String Bass Guitar

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. The H8 not only survived this experimental era of the 1960s but quickly became a timeless instrument.

The Hagstrom H8-II Retroscape Bass Guitar, finished in Wild Cherry Transparent Gloss, is an authentic re-issue of this legendary 8-string bass originally released in 1967. In other words, its tremendously powerful and sparkling sound is back! What makes the H8-II so special? The octave sound of the high strings is just perfect. Unlike electronic devices, this approach is not subject to tracking problems. The narrow neck, the congenial 8-string bridge (string-through-body) and its short scale greatly contribute to the perfect playability of the string pairs. Hagstrom’s proprietary “Dyna-Rail” humbuckers produce a phat sound and can be split to single-coil mode using the volume control. The on-board sliders allow players to activate and deactivate the pickups individually. The global “Tone” and “Mute” sliders provide a host of additional sonic options. This attractive package is rounded out by the authentic double-cutaway body shape, which fits snugly in the RetroScape series’ design philosophy and will even win over die-hard vintage guitar lovers.

A Resinator Wood fingerboard provides comfortable playability for hours on end - Resinator Wood is a wood composite that has a stable, clear and articulate tone similar to Ebony. Hagstrom's H-Expander truss rod runs the full length of the neck, providing plenty of stability, and adding a round attack and even greater sustain.

At Riffs & Licks Music, we think the Hagstrom H8-II Retroscape Bass Guitar, in Wild Cherry Transparent Gloss, is a great option for achieving realistic octave bass tones, whether on-stage or in-studio.
