The Sparrowhawk is an LTD Signature Series guitar for Bill Kelliher of the respected American metal band Mastodon. The Sparrowhawk has a vibe all of its own, while still retaining some classic aspects that make it outstanding for a variety of different genres. It features a set of Lace Sensor “Divinators” LTD pickups with matte black covers, which were specially designed for our Bill Kelliher Signature Series models. Push-pull coil-splitting control is wired separately for each pickup for a variety of tones (pull up on tone knob for neck pickup coil split, and up on volume knob to split bridge pickup). The Sparrowhawk has a solid and comfortable playing feel, with a maple-capped mahogany body, set-thru construction, and a smooth heel joint for fast access to the highest frets. It offers a three-piece mahogany neck with satin finish, a 22-fret ebony fingerboard with block inlays, and a TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece to provide stability and sustain. The Sparrowhawk is available in Pelham Blue and Black finishes.

Do the sparrowhawks come with 22 or 24 frets? The military green version states it has 22F whilst the blue & black version states it has 24F?

I can't find the pelham blue version of the sparrowhawk anymore... Is it only available in black ? Will there be other colors in the future ? I saw a gold one on instagram few weeks ago... Thanks!

How much do these weigh on average? I like heavy weighing guitars. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Andrew, these typically weigh 9-10 lbs, not too heavy, but not too light either.


Todd B. ESP I own a Sparrowhawk and I would like to buy the original case but I can't find any (I live in Switzerland). Can you point me to a dealer who has it?



Todd B. ESP

Hi marcomtb, you will need to contact your nearest distributor. Here is a link to our distributor page:


So stoked this is going to be available left handed. ESP is showing us the love in 2019. Thank you so much!


Agree 100%.....have waited long for this one to arrive and as lefty, the black and gold is just beautiful.....the best looking Sparrowhawk. /Misun

Hi Misun, thanks for your comments and glad you like it!

Hey 352DAve, It's hard to offer most models in LH version, but glad we got this one right and hope you can get your hands on one!
