Hagstrom VIKBLK Details

Vikings took no prisoners and neither will the VIK BLK, a versatile and elegant instrument.

Hagstrom Viking

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.

Viking Standards

Hagstrom Machine Heads

Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.

H-Expander

All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expander™ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight 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. The H-Expander™ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom's unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

Resinator Wood

Resinator™ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or "wolf tones" sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator™ wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expander™ truss rod, Resinator™ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive "Hagstrom tone".

Set Neck

Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Our set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body, and can often only be found on more expensive custom-built guitars. A team of experienced and dedicated craftsmen hand carves every neck joint, insuring perfect execution of this traditional technique preferred by luthiers for generations.

Trapeze Stringholder/Tailpiece

The classic Viking trapeze stringholder/-tailpiece design, is a work of art in itself. Right underneath the top part, where the two beautifully swept beams meet, it features a string claw for easy access and super comfortable string changes. Adorned with the legendary Hagstrom crest it truly is elegance defined.
