THE VIKINGS RETURN
Enter a true Scandinavian warrior! The Hagstrom Viking® stands proud as the undisputed all-time classic of the Hagstrom range and is one of the finest semi-hollow guitars on the market today. It’s price makes this even more remarkable.
With its meticulously crafted laminated maple body, solid centre sustain-block and hard-maple set neck, the Viking delivers a broad sonic palette ranging from Blues to Rock to Jazz-Fusion to 60’s Beat and beyond. The Viking will even shred!
Hagstrom’s iconic headstock is unmistakable as 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.
SONICALLY CHARGED HJ50 PICKUPS
A pair of vintage inspired HJ50 humbuckers rich in Hagstrom DNA drive the Viking’s® rich tonal palette and deliver a well-rounded blend of clean and overdriven tones. The Hagstrom HJ-50 pickups have been custom wound to bring out the best of the resonance and sustain this semi-hollow guitar. Both pickups have dedicated volume and Tone controls and are controlled by a heavy duty three way toggle switch.
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.
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.
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 STANDARD FINISHES
The Hagstrom Viking Standard semi-hollow electric guitar features a amazing White 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.
