New electric hollow body guitar

I just received my new electric hollow body guitar - a Hagstrom Viking. First thing I did was to take a few photos so you can see what it looks like. It looks very classy.

I then took it for a short test drive with my Marshall JVM 100 watt head. I set the amp to clean, semi-clean, dirty, distorted and super-distorted. The guitar sounds great on ALL of these settings! Impressive. I played only at low volume, so I don't know yet about possible feedback problems when play loud.

I've wanted an electric hollow body guitar for a long time now, and when I found out they were blowing these guitars out, I figured this would be a good time to get one of these.

I have played Hagstrom Vikings before. A friend of mine has one, and I once I borrowed a Viking for a gig. I've always liked how they feel and how they sound.

Have a look at the pictures - isn't it beautiful? I am very happy with it so far.

The Hagstrom Viking is extremely versatile. I can use it in many different ways, since it sounds great clean AND distorted. I have a feeling I will be using this guitar on a lot of future blues gigs - it is a perfect guitar for that!

Videos will of course come - just give a few days to get something together.
