View Full Description
Equipped in the Viking Deluxe are a pair of Hagstrom H-50 pickups, which are specially designed and voiced for this model. These produce a unique and distinct tonal range. When combined, your instrument is infused with warm, rich, and full-bodied sounds, adding depth to each string's individual character without sacrificing definition. They deliver a powerful mid-range response, making them perfect for a variety of playing styles, including blues, jazz, and rock. From gorgeous vintage-sounding clean tones to nastier, overdriven sounds, it can take your playing to even higher heights.
Alongside each pickup, you also receive two volume and two tone controls that allow you to tweak both electronics individually. You can use these controls to dial in the perfect balance of warmth, brightness, and clarity. And with the three-way pickup selector, you can switch between different pickup configurations to achieve the desired sound.
Play with confidence in comfort
A truly dreamy playing experience. The neck of the Viking Deluxe is crafted with a slim and fast profile, which makes it easy for you to navigate the fingerboard. The reduced size ensures that you can comfortably stretch your fingers to reach a wide range of notes along the fingerboard. This allows for greater agility and flexibility when playing.
On top of the neck sits a resinator fingerboard, a durable material that provides a smooth surface for your fingertips to glide across, increasing the overall playing comfort. Its slim curvature also reduces the tension, which can help minimize fatigue and soreness over extended periods of playing. A seamless and enjoyable playing experience that allows you to perform for hours without any difficulties.
A shimmering sound and sumptuous playability, but what else does it have to offer? Its perfection stretches throughout each and every detail of this model. Its bridge is a long travel tune-o-matic bridge and is complemented by a Hagstrom stoptail that not only adds a touch of classic style but also offers reliable intonation and tuning. Also featured is a classic Viking trapeze stringholder and tailpiece design with a string claw for easy access is a testament to its elegance.
During those long hours of performing, you want a guitar that's reliable. With the custom Hagstrom tuners, you're guaranteed a seamless performance with pitch perfect tuning. And with the D'Addario EXP 150 strings, you're provided with a delightfully dynamic playing experience, ensuring that every note you play has the desired tone and feel. The Viking is a marvel of craftsmanship and design that any guitar enthusiast would be proud to own.
