If you're looking for a guitar which screams individuality you're looking at the right brand. Hagstrom have always pushed the boundaries of design but keeping to their traditional values. The H-II is no exception with it's sharp horned design most would say is a nod to the 'SG' but it still craves it's own identity.

The playability of this guitar is exceptional and as you'd expect from Hagstrom, they're known for their quality.

Here's what Hagstrom have to say about the H-II ; 

Hagstrom H-II

The H-II and H-III were introduced in 1965, so 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of these iconic guitars. Known for their quirky switches and easy playability, they quickly achieved wide popularity. Favorites among punk and grunge bands looking for a hard-rocking individualist statement, H-IIs and H-IIIs have been showing up in the hands of artists such as Aaron North (The Icarus Line, Nine Inch Nails) for years. Many people have been asking for these classics to be re-issued, and we at Hagstrom are happy to comply with lovingly recreated and updated versions of these great classics.

Let me out

A comfortably profiled Canadian Maple neck is bolted to a hand-selected American Alder body insuring that the original attack and “bite” of the H-II and H-III is maintained. The classic 6-in-line Hagstrom headstock design, used for the first production of H-IIs and H-IIIs, has been slightly updated, and the “Vintage Tremar” has been re-engineered for functional improvements without sacrificing its original appearance.

Hagstrom has taken great care in recreating the original pickups, and the new cera mic „C-Spin“ pickups do an excellent job of matching the originals’ sonic glory. Tone-shaping functionality is enhanced by incorporating Hagstrom’s new RC-Circuit into the volume control, which allows for volume reduction without the loss of that high frequency “shimmer”.
