Sparrow seem to be a fairly small guitar company but I reckon they're a real gem. Of course not up to snuff with other pro guitar builders that charge $2,000 as a base price but they do make some gorgeous and amazing sounding guitars. They draw in a lot of rockabilly/psychobilly/punk/rock/indie groups with their Archtops and Telecasters but my Tele nails those classic Tele and blues tones like no other. They only build 100 guitars a month which ship to over 50 dealers across the world so they're not mass produced garbage, just a few dedicated guitarists building quality guitars! I own one of their Telecasters (the "Twangmaster") that I bought pretty much blindly from someone who knew squat about guitars and it turned out to be my go-to guitar for everything now. It plays like a dream and sounds fantastic, it's made from Ash and has some really tight responsive and Tele-like pickups in it. It has some serious twang and bell in the bridge and neck respectively. The neck is just a dream, it's so smooth and fluid to play on and the deep saturated look to it just gets me everytime I look at it. I love it. She's a beaut. I'm thinking of putting gold hardware on it and perhaps a black pickguard, I think the gold would go really well and sit nicely with the mellow natural finish and the black pickguard will accent the hand painted pinstripes around the edge of the guitar. Any other fellow Sparrow users here who realise what great guitars these guys are making?
