Description

In 2012, Justin York purchased a Hagstrom Viking® for use on tour with Paramore, and the rest was history. Since then, he has become Hagström's true partner and friend. As Paramore prepared for a major international tour in support of his latest album, Hagstrom began discussing what would be his ideal set of touring guitars. After more than a year of collaboration, the result is a pair of Vikings® that Hagström is proud to introduce to guitarists around the world.

Broad Tonal Range

Justin's job as Paramore's primary touring guitarist is to provide a supporting foundation for the band's guitar tone on each song. A band with a rich history like Paramore requires a wide range of guitar styles and textures. Therefore, one of our main goals was to create an instrument with a wide range that is easily accessible during stage performances. Hagström more than met this goal.

Justin's Viking® Gold Top starts with a classic semi-hollow Viking® platform with a classic vintage-style gold finish. Justin developed his "Ultra-Thin" 17mm neck profile for his guitar because he likes Hagstrom's thin neck profile. A vintage-style "witch's hat" button, like the one used on RetroScape models, completes the "vintage touch" that this guitar exudes. A Hagstrom Custom 58 humbucker pickup in the bridge position provides classic rock tones, and when Justin prefers something a little mellow, an HJ-50 humbucker in the neck position delivers a smooth, elegant style. Push/pull tone controls allow individual coil distribution for a wide range of sounds.

Usable Tonal Control

Tone controls are often a source of frustration for guitarists. This is because they were previously designed around the concept of passive treble cut. When the control is fully open, the entire spectrum of the sound passes through the circuit; when the control is turned down, high frequencies are filtered out. Many guitarists find this approach unusable, as removing the treble content often makes the sound muddy and overly "dark." Working with Justin, Hagström developed a tone control that does exactly the opposite.

Instead of filtering treble frequencies, it filters bass when you lower the control. The full spectrum of treble is always available, and the tone control features bass reduction. Justin finds this is much more useable on stage, and believes this is true for all of Hagstrom's guitarists.

Features

  • H-Expander - All Hagstrom electric guitars and basses include Hagstrom patented H-Expander™ truss rod
  • Hagstrom Machine Heads - Hagstrom models use 18:1 or 15:1 gear ratio machine heads based on Hagstrom's own designs to insure accurate tuning
  • Resinator Wood - Resinator™ wood is a wood composite material that is both more uniform in density and more stable than any standard wood product
  • Set Neck - Hagstrom's set-neck recipe is the classic and time-tested Mortise and Tenon joint, a design that most efficiently transfers string energy from neck to body
