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.
This Beautiful gold Viking is the Signature guitar osd Paramore guitarist Justin York. His distinctive additions include that great finish, a special set of pickups and a special Tone control which removes treble without getting muddy and unusable. Awesome!
Plenty of Hagstrom’s usual 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.
The Justin York Viking is made with Ply Maple and is semi-hollow. It features a 25.5” scale length which is relatively unusual for a guitar of this style! This changes up the feel and is great for tuning and intonation.
Two retro-voiced Hagstrom pickups - an HJ-50 and a '58 Custom - are selected for use here, bringing a selection of quality retro rock and Indie tones which prove to be versatile and satisfying for a range of styles.
The Hagstrom Justin York Viking is a breath of fresh air for all Rock, Jazz, Blues and Indie fans.
