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.
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.
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.
