This is without question the coolest Red Tail Hawk we've seen to date!
This short-scale offset is reminiscent of that old Fender favorite, but with a dash of some 60s Hagstrom and Guyatone vibes thrown in. Sleek contours combined with slightly pointed horns give the Red Tail Hawk its own unique silhouette. The thin body is super comfortable seated or strapped, and relieves some weight that some of the larger offset solidbodies can sometimes carry.
This guitar features a hybrid set of custom wound pickups - a Danger Dog in the neck and a Hot Dog in the bridge. The former is more of a Fender-style single coil wind, pseudo Strat-meets-Jazzmaster tonality. The latter is a P90 style wind with a bit more output and attack. Rounding out the hardware is a custom machined High Spirit aluminum bridge and brass saddle set with a High Spirit harp tailpiece.
We're so impressed with these guitars and we think you'll be as well. If you're looking for a unique electric with truly custom-made appointments and small-shop attention to detail, don't let this one pass you by.
