Hagstrom Tremar Viking Deluxe Black
Manufacturer's ID: 49TREVIDLXBLK
What we say:
Hagstrom are a classic Swedish guitar brand dating back to the mid Twenties! Guitar makers since the late 1950s, Hagstrom have always offered their own stylish takes on classic solidbody and hollowbody guitar designs.
Hagstrom are popular with a diverse range of players: indie and punk guitarists love them as much as jazz players and metal guitar players. Their robust build quality, strong tones and left-of-centre good looks all play a lot in this!
Hagstrom guitars all feature a patented H-Expander truss rod for supreme stability. They also use patented ‘Resinator’ fingerboards which are made form a composite material that feels similar to Ebony. The necks are real selling points for Hagstrom: it is a supreme pleasure to play these! They feel slick, solid and comfortable, just as they should.
Hagstrom are an excellent choice for the iconoclastic musician looking for something traditional and a little different, with modern functionality and great sounds.
The Super Viking is a unique and stylish take on the traditional double cutaway semi-acoustic guitar style. Plenty of Hagstrom’s most stylish features can be found here, from the distinctive 3-a-side headstock to a harp-style trapeze tailpiece. Even the shape itself is somewhat distinctive, bringing classic USA guitars to mind but having plenty of individuality of its own.
This Super Viking, available here in Black, is made with Ply Maple and is semi-hollow. It features a 24.75” scale length with 22 medium jumbo frets and some cool thin pedal block inlays.
This model also has a Tremor tremolo arm, Hagrstrom’s version of the Bigsby. A Graphtech nut and a specially designed bridge all help the tuning to remain solid, even after some violent whammy-fury!
Two retro-voiced Hagstrom HJ-50 pickups are selected for use here, bringing bright ringing tones along with the correct amount of muscle to prove versatile and satisfying for a range of styles.
The Hagstrom Super Viking is a breath of fresh air for all Rock, Jazz, Blues and Indie fans.
