Hagstrom Viking Deluxe Custom Limited 2016

The Viking Deluxe is one of the best-looking members of the Hagstrom family, so when we started work on a 2016 Limited Edition model we knew that something very special was necessary. It looks like our design team once again has risen to the occasion. Take the basic Viking Deluxe platform and dress it up in a stunning emerald green metallic finish with ivory binding and pickup surrounds topped off with a translucent pickguard. Then, from its Super Viking sibling add some sophisticated metal control knobs with push-pull coil splitting capabilities, and the result is our Limited Edition Viking Deluxe Custom for 2016.

Hagstrom’s Viking Deluxe Custom Limited for 2016 is a classic beauty with a versatile voice that will take you on a sonic journey from silky-smooth jazz through raunchy rock and on to a stadium-sized roar and back. Available in (naturally) Limited quantities in selected markets.

Pure, timeless elegance … but what else would you expect from Hagstrom?

* Availability may vary depending on the selection offered in different international markets.

Viking Deluxe Custom Limited 2016 Standards

H-Expander

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.

Guitar Tuning Peg

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.

Trapez Bridge

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.

Resinator Wood

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

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.
