Alright, I'm in a predicament. I tried guitars at my local music store today, and I narrowed it down to two choices. First, there's the Hagstrom Viking Deluxe Tremar, which is a really nice semi-hollowbody with a Bigsby style tremolo system. I also tried the Hagstrom Super Swede, which is a Les Paul-type guitar. Both were very nice, but I'm stuck on choosing between them. The Viking was $849 and the Super Swede was $649. I play pretty much every kind of punk rock there is, lots of alternative rock, and I meddle in jazz and blues as well. Amp-wise, I play a Peavey Valveking 212. Sometimes, I use a Zoom G2.1u multi-effect pedal, as well as an Electro-Harmonix Little Big Muff Pi. Most times, when I'm playing by myself at home, I just go straight into the amp. Any input is welcome. Thanks!!
Did you use it through that setup? If so, it depends if you want thick LP tone or lighter sort of 335 type tone.
I played it through a Valveking 112 at the store, no effects or anything. And I'm down for any sound really, I have an Ibanez Destroyer right now, so I'd be welcome to the 335 tone, but really anything is good for me.
super swede will do you fine for what you need
