2010 Hagstrom Viking Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar Tobacco Sunburst, Near Mint

$699.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2010 Hagstrom Viking in near-mint, 100% original condition and perfect working order. Described by Hagstrom as “THE undisputed all-time classic of the Hagstrom range,” the Viking features maple semi-hollow construction and a maple set neck design, delivering both a natural immediacy and warmth. Hagstrom’s HJ50 humbucking pickups have plenty of punch and power, responding well to clean and distorted signals. The guitar weighs 8lbs 6oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with fresh 11-49 strings, low action and accurate intonation.

The maple neck has a slender C-shaped profile carve with well-rounded shoulders, measuring .825” deep at the 1st fret and .850” at the 12th. The bound rosewood fretboard has a 15" radius with dot inlay and medium jumbo fretwire which retains its full factory height, showing virtually no wear. The guitar plays cleanly up the 24 3/4" scale with a straight neck and responsive H-Expander truss rod. This rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics of the H-Expander. The GraphTech Black Tusq XL nut measures 1 11/16” in width, and the headstock features multi-ply pearloid binding, with Hagstrom and fleur-de-lis inlay, and original Hagstrom tuners which turn smoothly with an 18:1 ratio.

The electronics function as intended, with a three-way pickup selector switch and Volume and Tone knobs for each humbucker. The Viking’s signature trapeze tailpiece, complete with Hagstrom crest, shines like new, as does the Tune-o-Matic bridge. The plastics are equally well-kept save for some very minor pick scuffing across the pickguard. The gloss Tobacco Sunburst finish is extremely clean with no wear of note, framed by two-ply cream binding on both the top and back. The finish on the neck is equally pristine.

A Gator-branded gig bag is included.
