Hagstrom VIDLXBARI-BLK-U Viking Deluxe Baritone Electric Guitar, Black Gloss
Hagstroms Viking® is established as the most versatile semi-hollow guitar on the market today, delivering a wide variety of tonal color to an incredible diversity of musical styles. A natural step for us was to extend the Vikings® voice to a deep, resonant baritone. Many guitarists consider a baritone instrument to be somewhat limited and narrow in its application, but Hagstroms Viking® Baritone shatters this stereotype. Two entirely new Hagstrom pickups were developed specifically for the Viking Baritones rich acoustics, adding shading and enhancement to deliver a broad spectrum of sonic colorings. In the bridge position we find Hagstroms new Custom 58C, a semi-open-coiled humbucker voiced to enhance the ringing clarity native to the Viking®, even in its lowest sub-registers. Sitting in the neck position is Hagstroms new P-Urified pickup, a specially designed full-humbucking-sized P90 pickup, adding warmth and openness while keeping lower frequencies tight and controlled. The result is a tonal continuum from clean and classic 1960s sounds, to Spaghetti Western twang, through the overdriven crunch of the 1970s and 1980s and on to the Über-Driven tones demanded by todays players. All of these sounds are built on top of the Viking® Baritones gorgeously deep, distinctive acoustic voice.
