Guitar manufacturer Epiphone has announced that they are re-issuing the classic Nighthawk Custom electric guitar at this years NAMM.

When the Nighthawk was first introduced in 1993, it represented a departure from Gibson "tradition" with its 25.5" scale length and versatile combination of coil-tappable humbucking and single pickups.

18 years later, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk now recognize what a great guitar it really is!

Essentially a Les Paul upper bout and SG lower bout, it features a solid Mahogany body and a glued-in SlimTaper Mahogany neck to give it a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain.

Nighthawk Custom is fitted with an Ebony fingerboard and for even more tonal spice as well as looks, a AAA Flame Maple veneer is glued to the top.

With its unique pickup package that includes a full-size NHT humbucker (bridge), a NSX single-coil (middle) and a NHR mini-humbucker (neck) combined with a 5-way slider and push/pull coil-tapping tone knob, you have 9 different "tones" available.

Whether you desire a powerful and warm humbucker or the unique clarity of a mini-HB to a thin, bright single-coil - and everything in-between - you can with this guitar.

One of the most noticeable things about this guitar is the gorgeous Flame Maple top in rich, see-through finishes and the mother-of-pearl "crown" inlays on the fingerboard.

If you missed out on the first Nighthawks you can still redeem yourself!
