Pictures of your HAWK-800!

Post by Synthetech »

Thought I'd share my unique looking Poly HAWK-800.
I got tired of looking at the old scratched up grey paint and used some extra base/clear coat paint I used to touch up my Ford Ranger's fender.

I think it looks WAY better now!

Here's my matching Ford Ranger!

Since it is auto paint, the finish is very HARD and durable compared to standard rattlecan paint.
You can actually buff this baby with car polish!

The midi controller seen fit just right on top of where the old parameter list was.
I painted right over that old list since a HAWK 800 does not match most of those #'s anyway.

Unfortunately I no longer own this keyboard. :(

It is now in the hands of a professional drummer in New York.
Maybe some day I will build another Hawk 800..
But I thought mabye some owners out there may want to see what is possible to revive the appearance of their Poly's.

This is a beautiful Poly-800. I have mixed feelings about dramatically altering the Poly appearance. But I think that is because I've seen so many hack jobs. But this is a gorgeous sight! Well done!
