It's more of what's commonly called a semi-hollow, and in fact that's how Hagstrom currently describes it. It's basically their Gibson ES-335.

The Hagstrom D'Aquisto, which is no long made to my knowledge, is actually an archtop, and I got to play the original when Jimmy made the prototype for Hagstrom.

Hagstrom quality has always been good, but unless they've changed their neck size concepts, I'd make sure there was enough to hold onto.
