Hagstrom Says…“Versatile tone, incredible playability, and sleek looks have powered the Hagstrom Viking® to its commanding position in the in the semi-hollow body guitar world. The Super Viking® continues in the Viking® tradition by incorporating key features from Hagstrom’s legendary Super Swede model into a Viking® platform.
An important trait inherited from its Super Swede cousin is the Super Viking’s® longer, 25.5 inch (648mm) scale length. Drop tunings are a breeze with this longer scale, maintaining brilliance of attack and powerful resonance throughout the instrument as lower tonal realms are explored.
Sonic versatility is further enhanced by Hagstrom’s new, open framed H-50’C humbucker pickups designed specifically for the Super Viking®. Add to this mix independent switching between humbucker and single coil mode via push/pull tone pots, and the Super Viking® vastly expands your tonal horizons, creating a new range of sonic worlds to ravage.
All Super Vikings® feature gorgeous flamed maple bodies with block fingerboard inlays, and are available in six luscious colors”
