Re: New Viking Owner

It's a year later...I did swap pups for 490/498's and it gave it a bit more 'chime'...but still not enough to impress or compare with our other guitars of USA-origin. By chime I mean a pristine, balanced, bell-like quality that inexpensive guitars often lack in clean mode. However, it wails overdriven and is easy/fast to play. It even has great note separation (must be the Resonator FB). For a Chinese-made ax, it's good value (especially in the used market where you can get one for song) for beginners/intermediate players.
