THE HAGSTROM VIKING BARITONE IN TOBACCO SUNBURST FEATURES A WIDE VARIETY OF TONES.
This electric guitar offers something a little bit different from your typical 6 string. Both physically and tonally. For a start the Hagstrom Viking Baritone in Tobacco has a semi acoustic body design. The arched ply flame maple top, back and sides looks lovely. Internally the body features a block to help prevent feedback. The baritone neck has been created using Canadian hard maple. It features a twenty eight inch scale length. This 22 fret neck is slender and plays exceptionally well. Although the Hagstrom Viking Baritone has classic looks the play-ability is very modern.
SPECIAL DESIGN PICKUPS. HUMBUCKING AND P90.
The detail gone into building this guitar is pretty amazing. Especially when you factor in the pickups that have been specially designed for it. The Hagstrom Viking Baritone Guitar has been fitted with a Custom 58 C Bridge pickup and a P-Urified Neck. This combination gives you a big variety of different tones. The Humbucker sized P-Urified pickup is actually a P90. Fatter sounding than a singe without the muddiness of a humbucker. Perfect for the lower tuning of this guitar. The bridge position includes some classic vintage humbucking tones. The rest of the hardware on the Hagstrom Baritone Deluxe is of a high standard. A good solid Tuneomatic bridge and Hagstrom tuners.
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.
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.
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 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.
