In 1958, Swedish-based Hagstrom started manufacturing electric guitars
The first Hagstrom Deluxe solid body guitars featured a distinctive sparkle and pearloid celluloid finish, an ingenious repurposing of materials previously used in their accordion production line. Over the years, Hagstrom expanded their line-up to include hollow body guitars like the Viking and the Jimmy, electric basses including the legendary 8 string, and Hagstrom‘s flagship models, the Swede and the Super Swede. Hagstrom also produced a series of acoustic and classical guitars in the early 70’s. When Hagstrom ceased production in 1983, the guitars became instant collectors items, and the love and respect for these fine instruments continues to be celebrated by musicians around the world.
25 years later, the legacy continues
Hagstrom guitars boast the original glorious Hagstrom sound and distinctive style, and they are built to the same stringent quality standards. All materials and hardware are sourced from the world‘s finest suppliers, and technological advancements including our patented H-Expander Truss Rod and exclusive Resinator™ Fretboard guarantee that these are the finest guitars on the market.
Now, the all-new Viking is conquering stages worldwide.
In the world of jazz, this is one of the most sought-after hollowbody guitars, as it is one of the few that can blend with the rich textures of brass and keys, but when required, step into spotlight to deliver razor sharp licks and runs.
