Solidbody Electric Guitar with Mahogany Body, Mahogany Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Black

Signature Solidbody from Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher

The LTD Bill Kelliher Sparrowhawk from ESP comes generously equipped and primed for performance. Co-designed by Mastodon co-axeman Bill Kelliher himself, this offset-body axe slings gracefully over the shoulder and sits comfortably on the lap. Its maple-capped mahogany body delivers a taste of that timeless ’50s/’60s-era dual humbucker guitar tone. Meanwhile, its thin “U” mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard offers stellar playability and response. Tonally, a pair of Seymour Duncan Distortion humbuckers with push-pull coil splits and custom gold covers allow Bill’s signature Sparrowhawk to cover loads of ground in a stage or studio environment. A TonePros Locking Tune-o-matic bridge and a set of matching gold LTD locking tuners ensure singing sustain and rock-solid tuning. In short, the LTD Bill Kelliher Sparrowhawk is built for sound, and its unique offset design is built for hours of comfortable play onstage.

Coil-splittable Duncan Distortion pickups

The LTD Bill Kelliher Sparrowhawk comes stock with a matching set of custom-covered Duncan Distortion humbucking pickups. These pickups have made a name for themselves due to their massive output, round lows, and top end that cut through a mix no matter how much gain you pile on. But punishing your preamp tubes is just where the fun begins with this guitar. Independent push-pull coil splitting for both the bridge and neck pickups enable you to drum up virtually any tone your song calls for. That’s a total of eight distinct tones to at your fingertips. These pickups have won over many fans here. And thanks to their smart coil splitting, the Bill Kelliher Sparrowhawk takes them to a whole new sonic level entirely.

Built for high performance and thick grind

The maple-capped mahogany body of the Sparrowhawk harkens back to some legendary guitars from the ’50s and ’60s. It’s reminiscent of those classic set-neck electric guitars, which adds unbelievable sustain to your notes and a thick punch in the midrange. Whether you’re laying down soaring leads or punchy power chords, the mahogany neck, 22 extra-jumbo frets, and ebony fingerboard on the Sparrowhawk feels amazing in your hand and provides killer intonation. The fingerboard is also beautifully decorated with mother-of-pearl block inlays.
