Just in- another stunner of a Flamingo Hawk from High Spirit Guitars!
The Flamingo Hawk shares its lineage from the short-scale Hagstrom I, among other European and Japanese import guitars from the 50s and 60s, but with an elevated build quality and materials that parallel some of our favorite Fender bolt-neck electrics.
At first glance, we're getting some late 60s Fender vibes from this one. Classic Black finish with a white pickguard and our first all-maple High Spirit neck give a nice nod to those '69-70 Strats commonly seen in this aesthetic.
This Flamingo Hawk features a Medium C carve neck that is super comfortable and shoots straight down the middle in terms of profile. A bit meatier in the first position than the Slim C carve, but still with that smooth and even taper that makes these necks a total joy to play.
Pickups are Connor's own "Hot Dog" wind that aim for a more authoritative P90 sound with great punch. Clean tones are still nice and clear with the right touch of natural compression, while overdriven tones get you into a more familiar Gibson territory. Check out the pickup covers on this one too! These are the "lava" style covers, and we love how they look, especially in contrast to the figured maple neck.
If you want the familiarity of a strat-like silhouette with something distinctively unique at the same time, look no further. We continue to be amazed at how much guitar is packed into these instruments, and they just get better and better as time goes on.
