Description & Specs

A collaboration between the design team at Hagstrom and “Papa Emeritus” and the Ghouls of the band Ghost, Fan-tomen (Swedish for “The Fantom”) transports Hagstrom’s legendary playability and technical excellence into a new, edgier realm. We started with an elegantly asymmetrical solid-mahogany body to which we have joined a mahogany neck using our classic mortise-and-tenon neck joint system. Of course, since it’s a Hagstrom, the Fantomen uses our H-Expander® truss rod and Resinator® fingerboard, providing the ultimate in playing surface stability and optimal tonal enhancement. Together these components create an incredibly stable, resonant and responsive sonic foundation.

With a relatively thin 11⁄4” (3.5cm) body, the Fantomen is beautifully balanced and surprisingly lightweight. A 25.5” (648mm) scale provides a slightly sharper attack amd more sustain than classic 24.75” scale guitars. A neck joint de-sign that provides total, unrestricted access to all 22 frets will meet the needs of even the most virtuosic player.

Our goal was to equip the Fantomen with electronics that would allow for a varied tonal pallet ranging from classic, vintage colors to screaming metallic brilliance. We worked with Swedish pickup guru Johan Lundgren, designer of pickups used by artists such as Meshuggah’s Martin Hagström (no relation!). Lundgren recommended two different humbucker designs: No. 2 in the neck position and No. 5 in the bridge position. The result covers an immense expres-sive range; from smooth, warm tones to the kind of attack and intense dynamic output that would satisfy the demands of even the most extreme musical styles. Each pickup can be split to single-coil mode by means of push/pull switches incorporated into the tone controls for even more sonic flexibility. This guitar speaks with many distinct voices.

You can find the Fantomen on stage with Ghost during their 2017 Popestar tour, but you don’t have to be a Nameless Ghoul to play one, and you can be sure the Fantomen available at your Hagstrom dealer is identical in every way to the Fantomen used by the Ghouls!

The Fantomen’s thin, comfortable body is just 11⁄4” (3.5cm) thick , so it is surprisingly light weight, and our designers haveworked to make it very balanced for playing comfort. Finally, our deep cutaway neck joint allows comfortable access to all 22 frets.

Tonal versatility is enhanced by the Fantomen’s Push/Pull coil split feature built into each pickup’s tone control. This allows for each separate pickup to switch from humbucker to single-coil sounds. Johan Lundgren designed two dif-ferent pickups for the Fantomen. An AlNiCo-2 humbucker for the neck position and and AlNiCo-5 humbucker for the bridge position.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
