Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
I saw a Hawk for sale in Denmark st 2 or 3 years ago the price tag was £300+ which I thought was an astounding amount of money for a guitar which despite its wayward charm is hardly worth that sort of cash.
If youre wondering what I mean by wayward charm how else would you describe a fretboard that only just wide enough for 5 strings not 6 and a neck profile that is more broom handle than "C" or "D" in shape, and dont forget the huge adjustable brass saddle or the totally inappropriate but rather tasteful intricate classical style rosette.
All in all it just leaves me wondering how many members were in the commitee that designed the Hawk?
