A semi-hollowbody with specially-designed pickups for a variety of deep tones.
As the Viking is renowned as an instrument capable of delivering a wide variety of tones to suit a multitude of playing styles, Hagstrom expands the selection of Viking models with the introduction of the new Hagstrom Viking Baritone electric guitar.
Like its sibling, the Viking Baritone was specially designed to produce a wider range of tonal versatility to players looking for an instrument in the lower voiced sub-range to cover a multitude of music styles. They have even developed two entirely new Hagstrom pickups to further compliment the variation of different tones that this guitar was to produce.
The Viking Baritone includes the new Hagstrom "Custom 58'C" Humbucker in the bridge position, being a semi-open coiled humbucker enhancing the instruments acoustic ringing clarity and sustain, even in the lower sub-registers offered by this instrument. Hagstrom's new "P-Urified" pickup, being a specially designed full humbucking sized P-90 pickup, sits in the neck position and offers a warm and open tone while keeping the lower frequencies "tight and controlled".
The Viking Baritone delivers a variation of "varied bari-tones" from clean and classic sounds recognizable from the 1960's, crunchy overdriven sounds from the 70's and 80's, and even perfectly caters to the modern day "Über-Driven" tones demanded by modern day players. Even at higher volumes using excessive gain, the Viking Baritone provides the player with an ability to offer controlled "musical feedback," thanks to the instruments semi-hollow body. The 28" scaled Viking Baritone neck is equipped with 22 frets, opposed to the more commonly used 24 fret baritone guitars, being offered on the market today. Case sold separately.

Comments about Hagstrom Viking Baritone Electric Guitar:
Its a well built guitar. I was debating between this and the Eastwood Sidejack baritone, which I played afterwords and also felt like a quality guitar. Opted to go with this semi hollow. I think the neck is a composite of some kind but it feels good. Tuners are quality and it seems to be keeping in tune. Played thru an overdrive pedal into a bass amp really delivers some heavy tones. Also sounds good played clean for some low tuned melodies.
