The Return of a NEW Classic!
When the Nighthawk was first introduced in 1993, it represented a departure from “tradition” with its 25.5″ scale length and its versatile combination of coil-splitting humbucker and single coil pickups. Break-through designs don’t always catch on right away. Such was the case with many now-iconic guitars including the Flying-V, the Explorer and even the Les Paul. Now, 18 years later, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk as too “different,” now recognize what a great guitar it really was and still is! Great Tonewoods & Premium Construction! The design of the Nighthawk is essentially a combination of an SG (with a lower bout and thinner body) and a Les Paul (upper bout). Like those classic guitars, the Nighthawk features a solid mahogany body (with added “belly” scarf for comfort) and a glued-in SlimTaper 25 1/2″ scale mahogany neck for a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain. The headstock is back-angled at 14 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay firmly in nut slots. To add brilliance as well as a smooth, durable playing surface, the Nighthawk Custom is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard, a favorite of serious guitar players for its resistance to wear. In pristine condition it also comes with a hardshell case. The case that came with this is not in great condition so we are just throwing it in but it will protect the guitar!
