Hagstrom introduces the Retroscape Series – authentically recreated guitars from the rich landscape of Hagstrom’s history. The new Hagstrom Retroscape Impala updates the original 1963 design for 2015 keeping the “soul” while incorporating important design improvements that will immediately appeal to modern players…

With their re-introduction in 2015, Hagstrom has taken great care to keep the set-neck “soul” of the Impala intact while incorporating important design improvements that will immediately appeal to modern players. The neck profile has been slightly rounded, weight balance has been optimized, and important improvements to the “Vintage Tremar” vibrato unit have been made.
Finally, an improved switching array maintains the look and function of the originals while incorporating modern, dependable, and ergonomic slide switches.

Since the tone of these instruments carved such a powerful space in the hearts of players, countless hours have been spent to reproduce the essence of the original pickups used in the Impala. The hard work has paid off with Hagstrom’s AlNiCo 5 “Retro-S” pickups, which expertly recreate the essence of the ‘60s sound and, at the same time, keep the door open for more modern sonic possibilities.
