- lap steel guitars
Mohawk was a Francis Day and Hunter (FDH) brand name used for lap-steel guitars and banjos sold in the UK in the 1950s. These instruments were made in England. The origin of the Mohawk brand name most likely originates from three of the founders of FDH: Harry Hunter and brothers William and James Francis. William and James were members of a leading London music hall troupe the Mohawk Minstrels. Harry Hunter also joined the Mohawks in 1874.
