What do you do when you end up with a nicely made guitar body and neck and you own a Guitar Building shop? 

Well, at Hawkins Guitar in Virginia Beach we turn them into one of a kind Hawkins Hot Rods. 

 

This guitar was once a descent made empty body and neck. We put it on the bench and went to work making it into a sound machine that will make you think the pickups are talking to ya...

 

So here is what we did......

 

1) We Handwound (scatterwound) some Nashville style Humbucker pickups with Alnico Magnets and Plain Enamel wire (Overwound by 5%). We then put covers over them for a sound that is exceptional to say the least.

 

2) Chrome pickup rings.

 

3) We hand wired and installed quality parts

 

4) Installed chrome knobs

 

5) We gave it the Hawkins Hot Rod Logo (as spelled out on our site)

 

6) We Hand Made a Curly Maple Pick Guard

 

7) We installed nice Locking Tuners

 

8) We hand made a custom Truss Rod Cover

 

9) We did a complete professional set up including fret leveling and polishing the frets to 12000 grit, string height and intonation. String height is 5/64 to 1/16 at the 12th fret and .018" at the 1st fret...Professional standards.

 

10) Installed a treble bleed on both V pots and Copper Tape Shielding in the cavities.
