Description & Specs

Within Norse Mythology of millennia far past, the warrior-elf god “Alvar” was a distinguished mighty warrior. As legend tells us, Alvar held a storm of emotion within his calm exterior, and was the perfect role model as a true best friend that could always be relied upon.

Hagstrom Guitars proudly present the Hagstrom Alvar, the smaller brother of the Hagstrom Viking which perfectly lives up to its Norse origins as the “Elf Warrior”. A true best friend and fellow fighting companion.

This semi-hollow bodied instrument in its “petite” body size, will be a perfect match for players searching for a semi-hollow in a smaller compact form. While it shares so many elements of its larger bodied sibling, the Alvar is a reigning force despite its diminutive proportions and elements.

As Alvar was also known for having a calm and cool side of his personality, this 6-stringed wonder has the ability to easily “dial down” for cool and calmer moments. If battle insists and a raging fight pursues, he takes up his battle axe and delivers some of the tightest and controlled death blows of mayhem. Sturdy, focused and resistant to feedback at high volumes and excessive gain, this guitar reacts and steps up to the task required. It is surprisingly capable of delivering an onslaught of destruction taking players by pleasant surprise, with all of the power and might that this little beast can dish out.

It’s sleek and slim multi-ply maple body and set maple neck, are key to delivering its sharp attack and long sustain. The dually equipped Hagstrom HJ-50 humbucking pickups transform this cool cat into a raging beast at the flick of a switch.

Our custom equipped RC-Circuit on each independent volume pot helps to keep the Alvar calm and subdued, while turning up the dials summon forth the elf-warlord. Players that have already become acquainted with Alvar have been shocked at is exceptional feel and flexible tonal control, despite its meager size. The Alvar demonstrates its ability to flip from wholesome clean, to full staunch aggression in a heartbeat.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

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).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

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.
