What we say:
Mastodon's master riffmeister Bill Kelliher flies out of the ESP/LTD stables with not one but two signature guitars!
This Sparrowhawk is an original shape, designed by Bill and based on elements of certain classic guitar designs that Bill has admired over the years. Bill's intricate playing style mixes weaving arpeggios and anachronistic note patterns with straight-up bone crushers of riffs. His guitars, therefore, need to be able to sound powerful and imposing but also clear with lots of definition.
The Sparrowhawk achieves this with a combination of tried-and-trusted woods & construction with some very specific hardware.
A large Mahogany body (plus maple cap) is matched with a set mahogany neck with a 24.75" scale, 22 fret Ebony fingerboard. A Thin U-shaped profile keeps the neck comfortable and speedy.
Bill's own signature Lace Divinator pickups are loaded into the matte-finished Military Green Sunburst body. These pickups are active units with push/pull functionality for tapping the coils into single coil mode.
This powerful and stylish guitar is capable of playing styles far beyond the genres that Mastodon are known for: It's a versatile and full bodied guitar with a great unique look all of it’s own.
