The key ingredients are all in place, with the ply maple body, 24.75” scale length and twin Hagstrom HJ-50 AlNiCo-5 Humbuckers working together to produce that classic semi-acoustic fat tone, yet with plenty of sustain. The looks are also to die for, with the artistic Viking trapeze stringholder/-tailpiece, art deco Hagstrom-design tuning pegs and tasteful white binding.
