    Hagstrom 67 Viking ii reissue

    Hi folks here is my Hagstrom 67 Viking ii reissue. It is often associated with Elvis because he played it during the 68 comback special, however, it is a great jazz guitar and the pickups are fantastic. Let me know what you think!

    One of the cooler non-Gibson Guitars I own!

    I just got this new Hagstrom’67 Viking II Reissue the other day. It is a full hollow double cutaway with mini humbuckers and a bolt on neck. It very much reminds me of the Starcaster and Coronado guitars Fender put out in the 60’s and 70’s:

    PureSalem Tom Cat Guitar!

    Hi folks here is a new guitar that I just acquired. It is a PureSalem Tom Cat. The body is similar to a Guild Thunderbird guitar. The PureSalem is a bolt on neck with an ebony fingerboard and a two p-90 pickups. Despite the strange body shape it is quite ergonomic!

    The least expensive tube amp

    I hope that problem has been corrected for the amp that I have. How old was your amp and how long did it last?
