Thread Name: 60/70s guitars
Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
I have a 12 string with 'The Hawk' printed on the headstock above a logo of the bird in flight. It was purchased impetuously from a flea market about five years ago for £80.
It was strung badly with what looked like rusty wires and I wasn't able to check it to see if it was playable. It was quite naive to buy it under these circumstances but once I'd got it home and restrung it, it played rather well and held it's tuning brilliantly. The only trouble is - longbow action! I can only play it for a few minutes before my hand aches like a rotting tooth.
I was very excited to see a reference to it here as I've not been able to find anything else about it anywhere and there's no label inside it that I can seeramus related.
If anyone has any other information about it I'd be really interested to hear it.
