Hagstrom Viking II Deluxe 1968 Cherry Red

Sorry, this listing has ended.


Ultra rare 1968 Hagstrom Viking II Deluxe in cherry red. Exact type of guitar

that Elvis Presley played in his 1968 TV Comeback Special (see the photo), right down to the black headstock. Serial number 718290 stamped on the 3-bolt neckplate. Weighs only 6 pounds? Nut width is 1 9/16”, the scale is 24 5/8” with a 9.5 inch radius. Features 4-ply top binding, a triple-bound neck, F-holes, and headstock, single-ply back binding. There is a small binding section missing in the first fret on the bottom edge of the neck. Ornate neck position markers (markers are missing at the 16th and 18th frets), and gold hardware. Guitar has nicks, dings and scuffs from honest use and due to its age. There is wear on the edges of the headstock where wood is exposed. There are also spots on the back of the neck where finish is missing as well (see closeup photos). There is weather checking on the back and front of the body. There is a one inch lacquer crack on the top at the edge of the bridge just above the low “E” string running towards the tailpiece, and three 5” lacquer cracks on the back in the top horn. Has a gold Lyre tailpiece (much of the gold has worn off over the years). The front adjustment screw on the bridge is missing under the “B” string (each saddle has two screws) but the intonations are right on spot. The bridge is fixed to the top with a removable string saddle bar. The height adjustments work perfectly. Frets are in good shape with just a little fretboard wear in the first five frets. The centers of the bridge volume knob and the bridge tone knob are missing. The pickguard is also missing. The bridge base had a small separation at the low “E” edge, has been glued, and is structurally stable. Frets show modest wear and still retain a nice playable profile. Truss rod is accessible at the body end, has been checked out, and works correctly. Neck is slim and fast with a super comfortable smaller profile. Electronics are original and in good working order. Fresh strings and just been set up.This is a really rare guitar that was made only in 1967-1968. WE SHIP IN NEW BOXES!
