Raid and pillage stages worldwide with the Viking.
The Hagstrom Viking Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar covers all genres from blues/rock to jazz/fusion and back again. With an arched semi-hollow maple body, its looks are as sweet as its tone. 2 Hagstrom humbuckers, combined with the resonant, semi-hollow body, provide plenty of power. And no Hagstrom is complete without their famous, fast-playing neck. The Viking has the patented H-Expander truss rod which provides tension at either end and runs the entire length of the neck. The rigid yet lightweight alloy truss rod allows for very low action and a thin set maple neck.
Another Hagstrom exclusive, the resinator fretboard is an extraordinary, homogeneous wood composite that maintains a strong fundamental harmonic and eliminates wolf tones. It offers the articulate sound of high-quality ebony but with more consistency and durability. Silky smooth, reliable, and fast.
The self-lubricating graphite composite nut is much harder than bone or plastic resulting in more string vibration through the neck. Tuning is also improved and string binding is eliminated by self-lubrication.
A long travel Tune-o-matic-style bridge and trapeze tailpiece further increase tone, sustain, and intonation quality. 18:1 gear ratio machine heads ensure fully accurate tuning.
The Viking's high-grade polyester finish is hard, smooth, and more dense than polyurethane, so its guaranteed to look great and provide excellent protection and sonic performance. Case sold separately.

Comments about Hagstrom Viking Semi-Hollowbody Electric Guitar:
This guitar sounds fabulous! It is flawlessly put together, well balanced in the hands, and easy to play. The neck is especially smooth and solid, and the two humbucker pickups offer a lot of versatility. I own a couple of equivalent Epiphone semi-hollow guitars, and I have to say this is a much nicer guitar for this price range. While the trapeze bridge gives it a distinct sound, I'd like to see Hagstrom offer one with a hard-tail bridge similiar to the Dot. A bigsby vibrato would also be a nice option as well.
