The ESP LTD Sparrowhawk guitar, designed by legendary Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher, is the perfect choice for discerning guitarists looking to add serious attitude and impressive style to their rig. This unique axe offers a unique Vintage Silver Sunburst finish splashed with copper tones, multi-ply white/black binding on both body and headstock, and a fully bound neck – giving it a professional look and feel.
But the truly outstanding feature of this excellent instrument is its sound. With a combination of single and double pickups, you can achieve a classic tone or unleash a searing barrage of power chords and riffs – allowing you to stand out from the rest with some seriously heavy sonic destruction! Whether you’re playing classic rock or modern metal, the ESP LTD Sparrowhawk guitar will help you reach new heights in both style and sound.
This guitar, built with set-thru construction at 24.75” scale, offers a mahogany body with maple cap, and a three-piece mahogany neck with a comfortable thin U-shaped contour. It has a Macassar ebony fingerboard with pearloid block inlays and 22 extra-jumbo frets. Components on the Sparrowhawk Vintage Silver Sunburst include nickel hardware with a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece and LTD locking tuners.
A big update on this latest Sparrowhawk is the set of Bill’s signature Mojotone Hellbender humbucker pickups. Designed for the duality of brutality and beauty, these nickel-covered pickups offer everything from raw and menacing tones to complex, articulate, and open cleans. Both the bridge and neck pickups may be split with push-pull controls on the volume and tone knobs. Includes ESP deluxe hardshell case.
