HAGSTROM VIKING
   
Used by Lee: 1985

  • 1985 -- ??

    NOTES:

  • A sunburst Hagstrom Viking can be seen at Lee's feet in a picture from the March/April 1985 Europe tour. I've never seen this elsewhere and can't even guess what it might have been used for.
  • A picture has surfaced of Lee playing this guitar with a screwdriver behind the 9th fret, while Kim is singing and playing bass. I think this can only be "Flower", although he generally used the Kent for that...I'd be curious to hear any theories!
  • Sunburst body
  • 2 pickups
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Black pickguard
  • 2 f-holes
