Hagstrom Guitars say…“The Hagstrom Viking saw the first light of day back in 1965, and became quickly one of the most popular Hagstrom models which continued in production until 1979. Since Hagstrom’s international return to the market in 2004, the Viking has made new conquests around the world and has become one of our most popular models with its amazing tone, ease of playability and ravishingly appealing looks.
Now Hagstrom turns back time and rediscovers the 1967 Viking II as it was originally produced during this distinct era of rock ‘n’ roll history. The Swedish pathfinder has influenced the music world (and pop culture itself) by becoming so broadly recognized within international television, media and in the hands of some of music’s biggest legends and forefathers of rock ‘n’ roll.
The new Hagstrom ’67 Viking II equipped with its hollow-body slim lined flame maple ply body, is adjoined to a 6-in-line, bolt-on Canadian maple neck. The new specially developed dual coiled Hagstrom Mini-Humbucking pickups will bring players back to the golden age of rock/pop music, with the introduction of the newly developed Hagstrom “H-52” Mini Humbucker pickups. The same classic vibe from the 60’s originals, fused together with modern day technology for a classic and punchy humbucker tone or in splitable single coil mode, providing players with complete tonal flexibility.
Gold hardware and details tastefully adorn the instrument where players can’t help falling in love all over again, with this legendary instrument as we bring this ‘67 classic back from days of yesteryear.”
