were building this guitar on the side and had intended
to put it in a local store, but, as soon as Keith Sparhawk
spied it, he had other plans for it even before we were
is based on the book The Necronomicon in the
movie Army of Darkness, this cleverly sculpted
guitar plays as nice as it is ugly.
poplar body is slightly smaller than the average Explorer
and also upside-down. It has nicely balanced humbuckers
coming in at 18k (bridge) and 9k (neck) that make
this guy sing. It also has no-nonsense controls, just
a 3 way switch and a single volume pot.
headstock was customized for Keith. It has a slightly
different shape than the standard Hembry 3x3 head
and it has Keith's "star and wings" logo
and his "Hawkstar" moniker.
