Hagstrom ’67 Viking II Limited Edition Black Gloss

Brand new condition.

Hagstrom, a Swedish guitar maker, became internationally famous in 1968 when Elvis Presley played a ‘67 Viking II on television for his first performance in more than seven years. Today, Hagstrom makes guitars in the vintage designs but with modernized and upgraded electronics, features, and ergonomics. With maple-ply body and gold hardware, these are well-made guitars that play great. They are also equipped with specially designed dual-coiled Hagstrom mini-humbucking pickups that have a pull-knob, split-coil option that switches the pickup to single coil. This changes the sound to result in a snappier single-coil sound versus the smoother humbucker sound. The tonal range and options are impressive, and the sound is great. This is the limited-edition Black Gloss model.

The Local Pickup is a guitar store in Rock Hill, SC - specializing in vintage and used guitars, as well as boutique brand clothing, and guitar gear and accessories.



All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include their patented H-Expander™ 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 world’s fastest playing guitar. The H-Expander™ truss rod not only provides ultimate neck stability, but it also contributes to Hagstrom’s unique tone. Longer sustain and a round attack are some of the sonic characteristics the H-Expander™ adds to the tonal essence of Hagstrom.

Trapeze Stringholder/Tailpiece

The classic Viking® trapeze stringholder/-tailpiece design, is a work of art in itself. Right underneath the top part, where the two beautifully swept beams meet, it features a string claw for easy access and super comfortable string changes. Adorned with the legendary Hagstrom crest it truly is elegance defined.

Resinator Wood

Resinator™ 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 “wolf tones” sometimes associated with conventional wood fingerboards. Resinator™ 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 their H-Expander™ truss rod, Resinator™ wood is a major contributor to the distinctive “Hagstrom tone”.


Slightly brighter and more vivid tone. Ample amounts of attack/”snap”. Strong resonance and sustain. Great servicability.
