I was just out there, innocently looking at guitars in the shop, when I found this instrument. It appears to be a Hagstrom Viking 12 string and I'm guessing the vintage is approximately 1967. One modification that I can vouch for is the pick guard has been removed. Other than that the hardware looks like it's original. It wasn't until I brought it home that I noticed there is a small but very annoying problem: the saddle for the G strings has been tampered with - each saddle has slots (or notches) to keep the strings equally spaced from one another, and the slot for the octave string has been gouged out for some reason. As a result that one string is trouble: it always sounds sour. I'll probably have to contact Hagstrom and find out if they can find a replacement part. *Apologies for my inability to get sharp pics of the guitar - the shiny bits seem to confuse the focus on my camera.
