Equipboard's gear archive is collaboratively built and maintained by fellow music lovers like yourself. Anyone can submit gear and equipment to artists. Joining Equipboard also allows you to create your own list to track the gear you have and want, and follow artists like Lee Ranaldo to never miss gear updates.
On Sonic Youth's website, a Hagstrom Viking Deluxe AM is listed among Lee Ranaldo's gear, and it says:
"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. Sunburst body 2 pickups Rosewood fretboard Black pickguard 2 f-holes"
The source and notes on this submission are correct.
