Product Description

The Hagstrom Select Series, Vintage Series, and UltraLux Series guitars recapture the original glorious Hagstrom style. They are built to the same stringent quality standards and feature Hagstrom's exclusive technologies including the legendary H-Expander Truss Rod while introducing a number of new technological advances such as the Resinator Fretboard in order to guarantee that these are the finest guitars on the market. The Vintage Series Viking is Hagstrom's most sought-after hollowbody. This guitar covers all genres from blues to rock to fusion/jazz and back again. Tremendous tone permates and the Viking's incredible sustain has become legendary. It features a Contoured Maple laminate body with a Canadian Hard Maple Set Neck. The fingerboard is made from Resinator wood with Hagstrom 6 mm Dot Position Marks. The Viking has a 24.75 inch scale length. The H-Expander Truss Rod provides tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck, and 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. Other features are Hagstrom 18:1 die cast tuning keys, 3-way pickup toggle switch, long travel T-O-M bridge with Hagstrom trapeze tail piece, and 2 x volume/ 2 x tone.

I own this guitar. I am a 63 year old, female musician who's been playing since I was 15 yrs old. I received the original Hagstrom Viking for graduation in 1967 and played it all across Germany during the '60s. 10 years later, it was stolen from me and I was heartbroken.

Then last year, I saw this guitar online for half-price and decided that I just had to have it. I took the plunge and haven't been sorry for a second.

It brought back so many memories. The feel and playability of this guitar are exactly as I remembered. Even though it is no longer hand-made in Sweden (now made in China, no less!), it still displays the same workmanship of my original guitar. I guess the Hagstrom folks are keeping a sharp eye on their Chinese production.

I have loved this guitar for 45 years. It's thinner neck is perfect for my smaller female hands but it's plenty fast! It doesn't matter what kind of music you play, it's always got the tone and nuances you want. It stays in tune, it's weight is not too hefty, and is balanced well. The beauty of this axe is exceptional.

While I own other guitars, this baby is my heart. I think you'll find it'll be your fav as well. You can't go wrong with this one!!!

Picked up a truly gorgeous new Hagstrom Viking (lefty) last week and proved to myself that the consistently solid reviews by pros and new owners alike is not just hype. The Chinese workmanship is very high quality (but not quite as good as what I find on my American-made Gibsons/Fender). Set up by the factory was excellent (intonated, low action, zero buzz, etc). The very thin neck (a bit thinner than a Gibson 60's) is very easy to play (particularly fast after you break in the fretboard's proprietary "resinator" surface a bit). The pick ups are very balanced and solid, non-muddy, particular when the amp is driven (I love the bridge pup). Pots are OK. However, what the tusq nut giveth, the subpar tuners taketh away - in terms of staying in tune (but still better overall than my stock Gibsons). For the price (I haggled) it's an excellent instrument and hard to put down. In fact, I may sell my beloved SG Standard because I can already tell that I'll seldom play it with this far more versatile Hag hanging around.

I researched the Haggy Viking Deluxe for a long time before plunging in. I think I fell for the looks of the thing (black with gold hardware) first, then read the reviews and thought, well I'd better go check one out. I tried the demo one in the shop which was great, then after deciding to buy bought the first one I tried out of the box. The setup was excellent, finish and looks were amazing. Paid around $600 US so was pretty happy with that.

Then I got it home and now I cannot stop playing it. I have played on and off for over 40 years and play just about anything, and some things well. It is making me a better player very quickly.

The neck is sublime. I have read various comments on forums about this a that but I can only say for me it is a joy. The sounds and sustain are excellent. I don't have much to compare with, but I have regularly played strats, teles, LPs, SGs, Ibanez, Ovations, Martins, Variax, over the years and I know a great axe when I play it. I am now running it into a Hiwatt 50 and using a Zoom G3X which give my little Hag some great sounds and tones. I must say that clean it sounds great with lovely tones, and acoustic is really nice. I was practicing it acoustic the other night for a couple of hours and just got lost in it.

If you are looking for a great looking, great feeling and high value new and versatile guitar I would highly recommend you try this one out.

Wonderfully playable guitar. This is my go to guitar and probably always will be, as it leaves nothing to be desired! I also own a Hagstrom HL550 which is more of a jazz guitar, meaning it's deeper, as the Viking is only a couple inches deep, and the two battle for my #1 favorite position, but the Viking always ends up winning because it's tremendously versatile.
I team this up wih a Fender all tube Super Champ amp and I'm "picky" about strings; with this guitar I might suggest chromes, and then try playing with the tone turned all the way to treble. The strings are all very distinctly voiced, and, like some of the great guitars, like more expensive Gibsons, she just about plays herself. If you know a chord or two, your playing will improve the moment you touch this instrument. Go for it!
If you want to hear what a Hagstrom Viking sounds like (and the HL550 also), I am here: Look at the individual song pages for descriptions which usually identify what guitar and strings I'm playing. Beautiful guitar!

Great guitar for the money. But I am the type that wants to know what is 'wrong' with something before I buy.
All the glowing reviews helped in my decision making but I have learned not to trust reviews where nothing can be found wrong with an item. I hope you find this helpful.

1. There is a small ridge on the neck at the first fret, 6th string side where the neck meets the fingerboard. Careful sanding and final inspection was not used. Not particularly bothersome to me for what I paid but a perfectionist would definitely have issues with it. For me the bothersome part is if they missed this it makes a statement about the quality put into the guitar. It makes one worry about anything not yet found.
2. The 1st and 2nd strings were sticking when tuning. After inspection there was trash buildup in the nut slots from the manufacture. I cleaned the nut and so far it appears this resolved the problem.
3. I am used to playing a Fender Strat. The Viking has a wider neck thus the strings are farther apart than found on a Fender. I can overcome this but it takes me time to readjust and 'find' the strings when picking. This is not a fault of the Viking, just a change for me.

Summary: After making string height and neck adjustments this is a very playable guitar.
For me a great deal - After applying Amex rewards toward the purchase I obtained the guitar and case for about $320.
So I will have to say for what I paid this is a fantastic purchase making these issues extremely minor.
Very happy with it.
