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 chunky carve C neck - one of three carves offered by High Spirit - reminds us a lot of some of the mid 60s Fender neck carves coupled with mid 60s Gibson SGs and Melody Makers. Full and round with a great taper and lean shoulders makes the biggest neck profile offered still highly playable.
Custom wound "Hot Dog" pickups are Connor's own take on a P90, with a smooth and dynamic response well suited for clean and gained up tones. The custom made bridge and tailpiece really speak to the dedication of the build and tie the whole aesthetic together beautifully.
The custom made acrylic "Dalmatian" pickguard and control plate elevate the aesthetic, creating a wonderful contrast between the Mahogany body and the rich rosewood fingerboard.
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.
