Bill Kelliher is a modern metal master, known for holding down the rhythm in Mastodon with his heavy chugging and ultra-tight riffing. Built purely for power and performance, Kelliher's signature ESP LTD Sparrowhawk allows him to play at his absolute best night-after-night. Equipped with his signature Lace "Divinators" pickups and appointed with super-solid hardware - this guitar is a pure metal machine!
The LTD Sparrowhawk is built around a thick Mahogany body that yields deep and focused lows with a harmonically-rich mid-range. Topped with a Maple cap, this material adds some crucial top-end sizzle and snap to help your playing cut through in a frantic mix.
Paired with a set-thru Mahogany neck, this type of construction gives the Sparrowhawk piano-like sustain and makes it easy to access its upper frets. Adorned with a silky smooth Macassar Ebony fingerboard, you can effortlessly glide up and down the neck - especially with its modern "Thin U" profile.
Lace "Divinators" Pickups
This might be the affordable version of Kelliher's signature ESP guitar, but the LTD Sparrowhawk still comes fitted with his superb signature pickups from Lace. Featuring super-slick black covers, these humbuckers encompass a full range of tone with a fiery and punchy attitude.
Glassy single-coil sounds can also be attained, with push-pull coil-splitting functionality wired separately for each pickup. Pull up on the tone knob to split the neck humbucker, and up on the volume control to split the bridge pickup!
