Hagstrom Viking Deluxe 12 String Semi-Hollow Guitar in Wild Cherry Transparent Gloss
A Chorus Of Vikings
The hardness of maple enhances tonal brilliance, so it was natural for us 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 our 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 our Hagstrom pickup magic. The magic comes from our H-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:
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.
