Hagstrom Viking Bass TSB · Electric Bass Guitar
And this classic Swede is now available as a woofer !!
The models were then reissued as far as possible as original as possible. For the new production even original machines and molds are used and partly new mashines built to coincide with the original specifications. Now we have the old bridges, tailpieces and even the Hagstrom Crest faithfully reproduced. Even the tuners of that time were faithfully recreated with somewhat smaller, more comfortable wings and the legendary H-Expander truss rod can be found in the neck of each new Hagstrom instrument.. Another new feature is the "Resinator-Wood" fingerboard material unlike ebony or rosewood improves vibration and lengthens the sustain.
The Viking covers all areas from Blues to rock/Fusion to Jazz masterfully and convinces through a percusive tone with strength and persistence. The Viking Deluxe si made completely of flammed Maple and block in-lays on the neck, and also Jimmy F-holes.
Value for money:
A bass for players with short fingers!Mobe on 27.01.2016
This is a stunning looking instrument.. what a fantastic finish, tobacco sunburst just great and styling just perfect. Great tones and tone selection, and very playable for a bassist that's always struggled with long scale. I have found just a few little niggles, like the six way selector is a bit loose and noisy. Still, I have every confidence that this bass is going to get better with age and will be a companion for many years to come.
