The Hagstrom Viking Deluxe Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar covers all genres from blues/rock to jazz/fusion and back again. With an arched, flamed maple body, its looks are as sweet as its tone. Two 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.

Let me start out this guitar is absolutely beautiful.The fit and finish is really 2nd to none. The playability is pure joy, that is if you like one of the thinnest necks in the world.you can play a guitar that cost much more money, then you would have to ask yourself, why?
It is the nicest semi hollow you can get for the price. I love the tone and sustain. Comparing to my Les Paul studio the sustain is great and the tone so full and 335ish. I was thinking of getting a 335 or 339 but couldn't justify the price as I play for fun so I went for this based on reviews and I believe that I all I heard about this guitar is true. For Blues, Rock and Jazz I prefer this guitar. If you dont like the pickups you can swap it and get your own preferred sound out of it.
The Viking Deluxe is an excellent value for the money. It's a very versatile instrument that can you give a decent jazz sound, blues , rock etc. My style of playing is more clean and jazzy so I don't even own effects pedals at this point. But from what I've reviewed online these guitars can handle all genre's very well and produce some astonishing sounds with good effects. These are not true hollow body instruments. There is a center block that runs through the whole body but this probably contributes to getting a variety of tones without a lot of feedback as well. I own a vintage Gretsch 6118 that definitely produces a higher quality jazz tone being a true hollow body that no doubt has better pick ups. Likewise this guitar will not beat out a Gibson ES 335 in terms of tonal quality, but the price difference is enormous compared to quality difference. Pros: Beautiful instrument very sharp looking. Very versatile for a variety of styles. Fast, thin neck profile. Very good sustain. Great vintage vibe. Cons: At this price they didn't do anything heroic in setting this guitar up. You'll probably find the slightest little flaws that are easily overcome. It took a little bit to dial in the correct intonation. The nut on the input jack came off and the input fell inside the guitar and was a pain to fix. The neck needed a truss road adjustment as it was too straight and was creating a little fret buzz, easy fix. The frets protrude beyond the binding edge creating a very rough feel on the hands. This shouldn't be too big of a problem but may be an extra expense to get them dressed correctly. It looks like the upper bridge post wasn't driven down into the guitar all the way as the bridge pin plate wasn't landing flush on the wood and you can see the teeth on base of the bridge pin not driven in to the wood all the way. While the installed strings were D'addario who knows how long they've been on there. So tuning was difficult, I recommend new strings in your own flavor immediately, that did the trick for me. Overall I think I'll be very happy with this guitar for the money and would recommend it highly for those who don't have a huge budget. The one star off is for the minor setup irritations and very slight flaws. Guitar Center may do a setup for you for free at the store if you request it and make a fuss. Despite the long list of cons here. Most of it is basic setup issues. This is a great value.
Ive had this guitar for about two years and, as my second electric, it is pretty fine. It looks gorgeous and didn't break the bank like a high end semi hollow would do. The pickups are as hot as can be and i could hardly believe the amount of rich, beautiful tone that they are capable of producing. However, upon looking into the instrument, i was a little disappointed. A ton of cables and electronics that had glue on them were floating around freely and the inside was stained with glue smudges and marks. Lastly, the thing never stay in tune. I have worked on the nut, oiled it tried more strings than i care to remember, and even replaced the tuners with $80 custom Kluson tuners. Through all this, the third string and occasionally others go out of tune before i play for even five minutes. Having said all of this and read all the reviews, maybe mine is just a dud or one that a worker practiced on or something. I hope this review was helpful!
The fretboard of the Viking Deluxe is a marvel of ingenuity. It is practically friction free and with the flat wound strings I put on it makes slides up and down the neck effortless. The twin Humbuckers offer a wide variety of tones to choose from. The neck was perfectly straight when I got the guitar so adjusting the action was a simple matter of lowering the bridge which with the adjustable saddles for each string made sure the harmonics stayed true. Did I say I love my new Hagstrom. Its tonality is great and it's beautiful. From chicken pickin' to smooooth jazz this baby does it all.
You get a lot for your money when you buy a Viking Deluxe. It is a very fine looking guitar. The finish is very nice. The set neck is very clean. I've seen reviews that say otherwise and had pictures to prove it but my Viking was flawless. The review also noted a bit of a glue mess inside the body. Again, mine was clean. The review I'm referring to was very positive but did point out cosmetic flaws. Mine did not have those problems. It was playable out of the box but it did need a set up. The frets were rough along the edge of the neck. However I've seen Gibson 335's with the same problem and they cost $2,500.00 more. It also needed a neck adjustment. The electronics and tuners were just fine. It sounds great both clean and with distortion played through my Vox and Marshall tube amps. In my opinion it is a much nicer instrument than the Epiphone in looks and sound. It's definitely not as nice as a Gibson but a whole lot less expensive too. If you want a very nice guitar but don't want to spend the money for a Gibson go for the Viking.
This is guitar is everything you need it to be. For the price you can't go wrong.. the look, amazing. No one believed how huge the sound was that i got out of this guitar, nor how much i paid for it. Do yourself a favor. Stop thinking over if you should buy this or not... DO IT. This company is going to blow up in the next few years.... grab one before the price goes through the roof.
As an active musician needing to cover a wide range of tones and styles I was looking for a versatile guitar. Coming from the jazz scene I also wanted to get a darker rounder tone. I did extensive research and played a number of guitars. The Hagstrom Viking Deluxe could not be a better fit for my needs and tone preferences. I played a number of nice Gibson 335's other semi-hollowbodies models and came back to the Viking because for what you pay, you get a real similar guitar for a fraction of the price. Nothing in it's price range comes close. Plus it's a head turner. You don't see many Hagstroms out there. Players come up and have to check it out.
Most beatiful guitar I've owned (even the case is pretty). My band mates stopped and stared the first night I used it. Great tones. From a fantastic growl to a chimelike clean. Feedback is easily controlled and gives me goosebumps. Love the thin neck. Easy to play. I believe my next buy will be a Hagstrom solid body .
