Style And Substance

Introduced as the Concord bass in 1965, Hagstrom’s Viking bass injects some tactfully chosen vigour into an all-time classic design. From 60’s Brit-rock to modern day low-end goodness, the Viking bass delivers ear-candy galore

This meticulously crafted semi-hollow bass with a short 30.75-inch (781 mm) scale is fitted with Hagstrom’s custom-voiced Dyna-Rail humbucking pickups. A brilliantly designed 6-way rotary switch allows switching between various humbucking and single-coil configurations for a dizzying array of tonal options:

Pickup Selector: 6-Way Rotary
1 - Neck + Bridge, Single coil (Outer coils)
2 - Bridge, Single Coil (Outer Coil)
3 - Neck, Single Coil (Outer Coil)
4 - Neck + Bridge, Humbucking
5 - Bridge, Humbucking
6 - Neck, Humbucking

VIKING BASS STANDARDS:

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.
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. 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
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 own designs to insure accurate tuning. Viking and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio
