Versatile tone, incredible playability and sleek looks have powered the Hagstrom Viking to its commanding position in the semi-hollow body guitar world.  Now Hagstrom expands Viking tradition by incorporating key features from their legendary Super Swede model into the Viking platform. The result is impressive – this is the Super Viking!

An important trait inherited from its Super Swede cousin is the Super Viking’s longer, 25.5 inch (648mm) scale length.  Drop tunings are a breeze with this longer scale, maintaining brilliance of attack and powerful resonance throughout the instrument as lower tonal realms are explored. Strat players will also feel at home.

The Super Viking also features a gorgeous flamed maple body with deluxe block fingerboard inlays making it one of the finest semi-hollow guitars on the market today. It’s price makes this even more remarkable.

Hagstrom’s iconic headstock is unmistakable – designed by the legendary Jimmy D’Aquisto –  as is their reputation for building superb guitars. Renowned for their exquisite finishes, playing comfort and tonal versatility, Hagstrom’s are every inch a player’s guitar.

Design innovations such as the aerospace engineered H-Expander™ truss rod, Resinator™ fingerboard, custom wound pickups and unique hardware are all hallmarks of this world class brand.

SET NECK PERFECTION

Hagstrom’s are famous for their set-neck construction – a time-tested design that efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body. One of a team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, ensuring perfect execution of that this traditional technique.

The Viking Standard features Hagstrom’s patented H-Expander Truss Rod. Providing tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the world’s fastest playing guitar.

OPEN FRAMED H-50C PICKUPS

Hagstrom are respected for their superb pickups and that sonic versatility is further enhanced by a pair of new, open framed H-50’C humbuckers designed specifically for the Super Viking.  Add to this mix independent switching between humbucking and single coil modes via push/pull tone pots and the Super Viking has just charted a new range of sonic worlds to ravage.

THE PLAYER’S FRETBOARD

Resinator™ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product, effectively eliminating dead spots or “wolf tones” that sometimes marr the performance of conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator™ wood is described by many as possessing an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony with a stable and clear tone and higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like their H-Expander™ truss rod, Resinator™ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”. Resinator™ is also easy to maintain and responds well to polishing.

TRAPEZE TAILPIECE

The classic Viking trapeze tailpiece design is a work of art in itself. Underneath the top of the trapeze, where the two beautifully swept beams meet, is a string claw that provides easy access and super comfortable string changes. Adorned with the legendary Hagstrom crest it truly is elegance defined.

CUSTOM TUNERS

The Headstock and tuning buttons were designed by Legendary American Guitar designer and builder Jimmy D’Aquisto. Hagstrom’s exclusive 18:1 gear ratio machine heads offer effortless and accurate tuning as well as tremendous stability.
The self-lubricating Graphite Composite Nut further ensures increased sustain and vibration through improved transfer of energy to the neck.

CUSTOM SHOP QUALITY FINISHES

The Hagstrom Super Viking semi-hollow electric guitar features a gorgeous flame maple top with Wild Cherry Transparent Gloss high-grade polyester lacquer finish.  Polyester Lacquer is much harder, smoother and denser while also producing much better sonic performance than the polyurethane finishes used by other guitar companies.
