This beauty is for all your traditional players with it's elegant design and vintage style specs. The 'harp' tail piece really sets of the traditional look and helps give the overall tone a vintage kick. Hollow bodies have historically been at the forefront of the jazz and blues scene and the Viking lends itself to these styles with ease. On the flip side, it can be rocked out and it will kick like a mule!
Here's what Hagstrom have to say about this traditional styled stunner;
Enter a true Scandinavian warrior! The Viking® stands proudly next to its solid-body siblings, the Swede and Super Swede. It is THE undisputed all-time classic of the Hagstrom range, and is one of the finest and most affordable semi-hollow guitars on the market today. With its meticulously crafted laminated maple body, solid center-sustain-block, and hard-maple set neck, it churns out sounds as diverse as they come. Hagstrom’s prominent, yet not-too-hot HJ50 humbucking pickups deliver a broad sonic palette ranging from Blues to Rock to Jazz-Fusion to 60’s Beat and beyond. You can even take it on a shred spin.
