Domino Hawk in Minneapolis area for $375

I wouldn't normally get excited about $375 for a Domino (though I do like them) but this Hawk is a rare Japanese made hollowbody in the all-to-rare white finish and it looks to be in very nice shape (hopefully all orginal).  Definitely worth taking a look if you like these unique relics of late 1960's California guitar culture.

Pretty cool and pretty rare 1960's Japanese made Domino Hawk hollowbody electric with f-holes and nice bigsby style whammy bar. Plays good, in clean condition, clean hardware, all original. Backside has several stress cracks in the finish that don't go to the wood.

•Location: Minnetonka



  1. Is this guitar still for sale? If so, I will happily buy it for $375. Would you ship to Los Angeles? I have plenty of references, including an ebay store with a 12 year flawless feedback history. I am a huge Domino collector and have a little website dedicated to them (link is included in this post).

    If this is still available, I'd really appreciate a response! Thank you for your time. -Darren Robinson

  2. Darren: You commented on my Blog (CL Vintage Guitar Hunt) so I contacted the seller of that white Domino Hawk in Minnetonka - his name is John McCrady and he is willing to box and ship it to you for $300 + the cost of shipping. His email is - I told him you were a friend of mine from LA and that you would be contacting him. Good Luck. Let me know how it turns out. - JIm C

  3. I got in touch with him. Just waiting for a response. Thank you again for your help! Very kind of you!

  4. I have this exact guitar minus the black (guard?) on the body. Mine too has a couple of stress cracks in the finish,but is in otherwise great shape and all original. My father purchased it after coming home from Vietnam in the late 60's. Don't know much about it and found this picture while trying to do a little research. Would be willing to sell for the right price. Mark (


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
