The guitar features TV Jones Classic Filter'Tron Pickups and a Bigsby B7 tremolo.

Salem, OR (February 17, 2017) -- Oregon’s aluminum guitar manufacturer, Normandy Guitars, has just released the crown jewel of their guitar line, The new SuperHawk Archtop. This aluminum ‘bird’ follows Normandy’s M.O. of building some of the coolest archtops you’ve ever seen made from recycled tin cans. But this one aims to take a bite out of that historically difficult to enter rockabilly genre that’s more often than not represented by a Gretsch in one way or another.

The SuperHawk has made some obvious changes that you’d expect from a “Billy” guitar including, TV Jones Classic Filter'Tron Pickups, a Bigsby B7 tremolo, Trem handle switched out with a Chet Atkins-style bar, vintage-style pickguard and the finish on the neck with it’s cue ball white and dusty gray/blue on the back is reminiscent of vintage 1950s models. Add it all up and the total vibe of the SuperHawk is getting the attention of some of the world’s better known “Billy” guitarists.
