Looking for the epic Pat Smear Hagstrom signature guitars collection? Yep, we have them right here at the Music Specialists.

Pat Smear has a fantastic reputation and does not need a formal introduction as he has been in the forefront of music antiquity his whole career, from the initial years as an establishing member of the fundamental punk band “The Germs”, to his stint with the romantically tragic Nirvana, and on to his prevailing role laying down immense riffs for the Foo Fighters.

Hagstrom has been his instrument of choice since the 1970s, creating a deep and authentic bond that has lasted decades.

We at Hagstrom Guitars were both pleased and honoured to be given the task of transforming his privately customized and road-proven vintage Hagstrom into the Pat Smear Signature guitar you see here. An additional source of pride for us is that the Pat Smear Signature guitar you find at your Hagstrom dealer is identical to the one Pat plays night after night on some of the largest stages in the world.

Pick up a Pat Smear Hagstrom signature guitar from Music Specialists today and start shredding like the Fooeeeeeys.

This slick black beauty is a voluptuous blend of vintage Hagstrom H-IIN-OT and modern-day Super Swede. Its sleek mahogany body and deeply contoured maple top provide a deep, projecting platform for Hagstrom’s Custom 58 AlNiCo humbucking pickups, enabling the guitar to cut through the mix and sit right in the middle of the Foo’s triple-guitar onslaught. Elegant, clean tones meet highly saturated distortion. Just what Pat ordered.



All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses incorporate our patented H-Expander truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing the guitar. The H-Expander truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

Resinator Wood

Resinator wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or “wolf tones” sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator wood has an articulate sound similar to high-quality ebony but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander truss rod, Resinator wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”.

Hagstrom Machine Heads

Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.
