The Viking IIP is a soloist's dream, featuring a new state-of-the-art neck design that is so thin it has to be played to be believed.
Measuring a mere 18-19mm thick, the UltraLux's neck still benefits from Hagstrom's H-Expander truss rod and Resinator fretboard for stability and reliability.
The Viking IIP is based on the original red Viking that helped "The King" stage his legendary comeback.
The Viking IIP features the super thin, fast Ultralux bolt-on neck for fretboard acrobatics and smooth tone.
With a Basswood body and a Maple neck, as well as distinctive Pearl Dot inlays on the Resinator fretboard, the Viking IIP features Hagstrom 15:1 die cast tuners, 24.75 inch scale length, 2 x Hagstrom custom H90 nickel covered pickups, a 3-way toggle, and a long travel T-O-M bridge with Hagstrom Stop tail piece.
The H-Expander Truss Rod provides tension at either end and running the entire length of the neck.
The rigid yet lightweight 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 Ultralux Series Viking IIP also features 2x Volume / 2x Tone controls.
