The deep, well

29.09.2016
I played until recently an Epiphone Imperor II Joe Pass model over a Vox VT40 + amplifier. This guitar-amp combination I used in both a big band and a jazz combo. The required sounds were not only cleane, but also bluesy. I always had feedback problems, depending on the location. On the one hand, I loved this guitar-amp combination, on the other hand I was sometimes annoyed. In finding the solution to the problem, I came up with the idea of ??caring for a semi-acoustic guitar that is low-feedback due to its design. I did not want to do without the amp with the tube. My problem is now with the Hagström Super Viking DBS not only solved, but I have also made a big step forward in terms of sound.

This guitar is very powerful in the overall sound of a big band. Both in chord and solos she speaks very quickly. In the Jazzcombo the Hagström Super Viking replaces two guitars for me because of their sound diversity due to coil splitting.

The processing I judge as high-quality. The coloring is, of course, taste. I find them very successful.

A little problem I still have with the playability. As is known, the scale is 20 mm longer, which helps the speech. Since I am a leaf player, my gaze is always directed to the sheet of music and not to the fingerboard. So sometimes it happens that I deeper lying chords reach too high. I hope I'll have a gameplay with this guitar soon, and there's no longer any flare.

This guitar has a very good price-performance ratio. If you are interested in a semi-acoustic guitar, you should definitely look at these Hagström. Interesting tests are available at delamar and bonedo.

Supplement 22.12.2016:
After Thomann's take back guarantee expired, I realized that the switch for the pickup was no longer working. I sent the guitar to Thomann for repair. After four weeks Thomann informed me that the supplier wanted to return the instrument at the earliest mid-end to the end of January. On my call to Thomann, I was given a credit without discussion, which I could order a different guitar, Ibanez AM93. Unfortunately, I must now
With regard to quality point deduction.

Got my Hagstrom super Vikings dbs few days ago, opened the box and discovers logged sitting in the lower saddle was loose, so started with glue before I could test the guitar. The guitar feels relatively intonerad and almost sued directly from the carton. Incidentally, the guitar very easy to play and good with resonance without having to plug in. Tested also against the fender amps and sounds undoubtedly good there too ... but do try it more with full speed, is now satisfied with the play on it without amplifiers. Having never previously owned a Hagstrom but feels like a well built guitar in addition to the above, I have nothing to complain about.

Now it's been more than 6 months since I bought the guitar and that one can say is that it measures up. To complain about is the electronics that sometimes feels a bit cheap, when switching between the neck pickup and bridge and again to switch to the center position, the audio is sometimes disappearing completely from one or the other pickup truck, you simply switch between the pickup to get sound in the back. Slightly irritating.
The advantages are that it is generally a well-built guitar with great resonance and bold sound, playing everything from reggae blouse jazz and do their job. Has made some adjustments since it was bought lowered the string height further and replaced to 0:11 to 0:49, the guitar is easy intonerad and keeps the mood excellent. However, there are more options on the guitars in this price class resistant to consider PRS SE, Ibanez AS93 which is also as good allround guitar reggae blues jazz etc. What one can say about Hagstrom super Vikings is that it is able to get a little lighter tones with splitcoil where you can switch to single coil mode feature makes it easy to vary their sound to fit what you want.
Also bought a Hagstrom Viking UltraLux 2 and Super Viking has relatively fatter neck, which is a drawback for me to play more hours straight :) but if you want fat sound then, we strive indeed :) will come back with further comments come
