The Tomahawk model is arguably the most original design in the High Spirit lineup. A slim and lightweight solidbody with asymmetrically pointed double cutaways remind us of some of the great European and Japanese electrics from the 50s and 60s, but with a much higher build quality and distinct level of craftsmanship. Think USA made Fender but with a more hands-on and dialed in feel.
The slim carve C neck - one of three carves offered by High Spirit - is reminiscent of some of our favorite early and mid 60s Fullerton offsets. Comfortable and quick with a nice taper, but not too small. Custom wound "Danger Dog" pickups are Connor's own take on a fender style single coil pickup. Vintage low output provides great clarity with nice spank and response.
The custom made bridge and tailpiece really speak to the dedication of the build and tie the whole aesthetic together beautifully. The machined aluminum plays very well off of the beautiful body finish and anodized guard without clashing too much. Brilliant design, functionality, and execution in spades!
Simply put, the Tomahawk models are fun, inviting guitars that offer simplicity without sacrificing tone and playability. At this price point, you might not find a better valued bolt-on electric on the market.
