Hubba Bubba - Viking Naturally!

Bruce hit the FORUM with a question about spares. After passing on the spares contacts we got into a bit of dialogue, and what comes out of this in the space of a few hours can only be done justice in the following manner...

David... Here's a few shots I took today on the deck....play in a weekend Keltic act www.blueberrygrunt.com  and intend to try the Viking out next weekend for a set or two.Hopefully will get some nice glassy tones.....any recommendations on the tone and toggle settings???

Reply: What a gorgeous variation. I haven't seen quite this combination before. I love the natural woods - why hide quality eh? The lacquer finish is a secret recipe. 
Top 3-way toggle: Tone - just to confuse Gibson players... Plus tone dials, so the variation is immense. Bottom 3-way toggle: pickup selection. For a full severe and independent critique on the model, read the reproduction of the 1977 publication: http://www.hagstrom.org.uk/images/Articles/DelftViking1/DelftViking.htm 
This one looks to be about 1974 vintage - cherish it! Send me the serial from the plate and I'll confirm it for you. The pickups were made by Hagström, actually the same model as used on the Swede (solid LP type model).

Glad you like it....!! I read the article, thanks!! Very retro... The wood grain is amazing actually...it was bought by my buddy 20 years ago and lived under the bed....it was gross when I first got it a few weeks ago, I was in Germany and didn't return till this week ...I played four nights this week and this was my first day to take it apart and clean it from top to bottom... the finish was so dull, I freaked after applying the polish and saw this baby come alive... I tell you with every swipe of the cloth it kept on smiling at me....haa!! Wish I had my amp here... have to wait till tomorrow.... tanks for all the info... you can post the pics if you like.... the guitar is owned by my buddy Ron.... maybe after I play it he may want to trade it for my cat or something ??!!  I'll keep you posted after the gig next week...

Now that's what I call a quick conversion, but we all know why eh? Feast your eyes on the full story in pictures

Oh yes of course www.blueberrygrunt.com Go See

OK, so everybody check under the bed tonight - without fail

I hear this method of finding wonderful examples all the time,
the odds are much higher than the lottery it seems!

There's nothing like a REAL original Swedish made Hagstrom (and there are loads around), but if it 'floats your boat', or you can't find an original then who are we to say?

Plenty has been said already and
will be said forever forward probably.
Only you know what's right for you!
