More than 200 pounds of pressure are exerted on the neck of a 12-string guitar, a huge problem for traditional guitar designs. However, Hagstrom’s unique H-Expander™ truss rod, inspired by designs used in jet aircraft manufactured in Sweden by Saab, handles this with no problem and even allows for an incredibly thin neck for playing comfort with no compromise in stability. Your neck will stay straight for years to come with Hagstrom’s Viking® Deluxe 12-string.
Featuring a semi hollow body with a solid Maple centre block, this is a superb guitar. The hardness of Maple enhances tonal brilliance, so it was natural choice for Hagstrom’s 12-string Viking® Deluxe. Maple used throughout the body and neck results in a brilliant voice for this guitar.
Standard equipment on Hagstrom is the H-Expander™ truss rod and Resinator™ fretboard. Both of these features also enhance acoustics by emphasising the octave strings, balancing them with the naturally fuller standard strings, resulting in a lush, choral-like acoustic platform upon which Hagstrom build their pickup magic. Hagstrom H50 humbucking pickups were designed and voiced specifically for this 12-string model. Gorgeous vintage-sounding clean tones can heat up nastily when overdriven, taking this 12-string into new sonic territory.
