Subject: RE: 60/70s guitars
The Hawk was the second guitar I had to learn on when I was 12. £14. Loved it. Action a bit high but nice tone. Gave it to a relative and eventually got it back a couple of years ago bent cracked and in a sorry state. For nostalgia reasons I gave it to a repairer in Brum. Bob Barry. All restored so it now plays really well and had a Seymour Duncan timberline pick up added. Sounds so good now that everyone thinks it's some old classy Gibson or similar. All cost me a bomb but I love it now and wouldn't part with it.
