Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
Hey - seems I posted on the wrong thread - not really, but I noticed this one which seems more relevant. I too have a Hawk jumbo from about 1967, cost me £27. Dark sunburst - but the neck is a dream with a very low action. The machine heads are shit, very stiff, and never having owned a case for it in all the years, it looks incredibly scabbie. The tortoiseshell pickguard (plastic) fell off years ago, but I still have it. When I can be bothered to change the strings, every three or four years, it sounds very nice. :) It's never been used professionally, (I play bass) it's just an old "strummer," for the house.
