High Spirit: Blackout Edition!
Connor delivered a super sleek blacked out Flamingo Hawk that even rocks some black hardware!
This Flamingo Hawk features a Chunky C carve neck that has a bit of the '59 Gibson profile to it. A bit meatier in the first position than the Medium C carve, but still with that smooth and even taper that makes these necks a total joy to play. A nice spin on this build the use of Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard, the likes of which we haven't seen yet in a High Spirit.
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. Look closely at those custom made covers and you'll see some woodgrain - yep, those are Mahogany covers!!
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.
Priced with gig bag.
