LTD Sparrowhawk Bill Kelliher Signature, Military Green Sunburst
This is an LTD Sparrowhawk Bill Kelliher signature guitar. Kelliher has been the rhythm guitarist of prog rock powerhouse Mastodon since the band’s formation in 2000, but he only recently started endorsing ESP in 2016, who built him an Eclipse style model first. The Sparrowhawk represents a more classic aesthetic appeal, but with plenty of power. It rocks a pair of Kelliher’s signature Lace pickups, Divinators, a nod to the second song on Mastodon’s album Crack the Skye. These pickups sound great, with a rich tone the can growl and bite, but also clean up for some snappy tones with the coil tap. Put these gorgeous pickups on an offset body with gold hardware and you’ve got yourself an awesome sounding guitar with a classic look. This piece is in fabulous condition, and after an expert set-up from our in-house luthier, it plays wonderfully, with a nice low action. The only blemish is some bumps under the paint on the bottom side; this appears to have come from the factory. The gold is also beginning to tarnish slightly, but it is still nice and shiny. This guitar is gorgeous, and ships in its original hardshell case!
