Description

A Chorus Of Vikings

The hardness of maple enhances tonal brilliance, so it was natural for Hagstrom to develop Hagstrom’s 12-string Viking Deluxe.

Maple used throughout the body and neck results in a brilliant voice for this guitar.  Standard equipment on Hagstrom is their H-Expander truss rod and Resinator fretboard. Both of these features also enhance acoustics by emphasizing the octave strings, balancing them with the naturally fuller standard strings, resulting in a lush, chorale-like acoustic platform upon which we build their Hagstrom pickup magic. The magic comes from theirH-50 humbucking pickups, designed and voiced specifically for this 12-string model. Gorgeous vintage-sounding clean tones can heat up nastily when overdriven, taking this 12-string into new sonic territory.

More than 200 pounds of pressure are exerted on the neck of a 12-string guitar, a problem for traditional guitar designs. However, Hagstrom’s unique H-Expander truss rod, inspired by designs used in jet aircraft manufactured in Sweden by Saab, handles this with no problem, and even allows for an incredibly thin neck for playing comfort with no compromise in stability. Your neck will stay straight for years to come with Hagstrom’s Viking Deluxe 12-string.

VIKING DELUXE 12 STRING STANDARDS:

H-Expander
All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include their 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.

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.

Set Neck
Hagstrom uses a variety of different neck joints throughout our range. Their 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.

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”.

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