Hagstrom Viking Bass 4 String White Semi Hollow VIKB-WHT
This is a new bass. It has a very small scuff on the headstock edge and the pickup is missing a pole piece decorative cover piece.Introduced as the Concord bass in 1965, Hagstromâ€™s VikingÂ® bass injects some tactfully chosen vigor into an all-time classic design. This meticulously crafted semi-hollow bass with a short 30.75-inch (781 mm) scale is fitted with Hagstromâ€™s custom-voiced Dyna-Rail humbucking pickups. A brilliantly designed 6-way rotary switch allows switching between various humbucking and single-coil configurations for a dizzying array of tonal options. From 60â€™s Brit-rock to modern day low-end goodness, the VikingÂ® bass delivers ear-candy galore.
Viking Bass Standards
All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include our patented H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod. Providing tension at both ends and running the entire length of the neck, the rigid yet light-weight alloy truss rod allows for a very low action and thin neck, two factors that were instrumental in earning Hagstrom its reputation as the worldâ€™s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstromâ€™s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expanderâ„¢ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.
Hagstrom Machine Heads
Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on our own designs to insure accurate tuning. VikingÂ® and HB series basses feature machine heads with a 17:1 gear ratio.
Resinatorâ„¢ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product. These characteristics eliminate dead spots or â€œwolf tonesâ€ sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinatorâ„¢ wood has an articulate sound similar to high quality ebony, but without any of the problems associated with ebony. It provides a stable and clear tone, and also adds higher overtones and harmonics which uniquely detail each note. Like our H-Expanderâ„¢ truss rod, Resinatorâ„¢ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive â€œHagstrom toneâ€.
