The Hagstom Alvar Compact Elf Warrior is proof that big things come in small packages. Named after a god from Norse mythology, the Alvar is the petite brother of the Hagstrom Viking, but every bit as mighty.
This semi-hollowbody is made of multi-ply maple, with a Canadian hard maple set neck. It features the magic combination of a thin profile with very low action, thanks to the H-Expander truss rod. The Hagstrom Alvar uses a GraphTech Black Tusq XL 43 mm nut. The fretboard is Resinator—a sustainable wood/composite with the tone of ebony, but more consistent. It’s lined with 22 medium jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays.
Dual Hagstrom HJ-50 alnico-5 humbuckers go from full crunch to pristine clean; the passive RC-Circuit maintains the highs at lower levels on both volume pots. Two tone controls allow the Alvar to make the transition from heavenly to hell-raising with ease.
Strings pass over a long-travel tune-o-matic bridge for accurate intonation before anchoring in the trapeze tailpiece. The Hagstrom-designed tuners have an 18:1 gear ratio for even further precision.
Despite its meager size, the Hagstrom Alvar Compact Elf Warrior offers an exceptional feel with sounds to match.
