    Harmonic Design & i forget if they're P90 or VP90 or what... - Bill?

    and btw, all you rascally Hawk owners (there are several of you here now) - i'm still the only one with a review on Harmony Central. time to spread the word amongst the poor benighted types who haven't found their way here. :D

    Bill,

    You have mentioned a Spruce top Hawk, whatÂ’s the thought around that - body material, what sound are you aiming for etc.

    BTW all that haven't noticed there are even more Hawk clips on my Soundclick page, some are even "Shades approved" :D

    Thanks...

    So IF i was looking for a guitar with a smooth yet open sound that would sound good clean or overdriven with a big sound and dynamics, tones like RF or Carlton 335 but with more wood in the tone, would the Spruce Fatline Hawk be a good match?

    IF i was looking ;) :rolleyes:
