“Gibson Nighthawk Studio ”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by BaronWheeler (1 review written)

Bought mine new a year ago and love it. It is a goldtop with Burstbuckers. My main guitar for 40+ years was a 62 LP SG, which is great but has tuning issues. I love the sound, the feel, and the light weight. Also the body contour, no more bruises on the ribs. Mucho sustain, I was surprised at that. Plenty of growl through a Fender Blues Jr. I only wish it had a traditional 4-knob set-up. … Read Full Review

“My attention was originally caught by the Epiphone...”

Written on: 06/04/2011

My attention was originally caught by the Epiphone Nighthawk Reissue - looks like stunning value for money. But then I saw the Gibson 2010 Standard on the Gibson website and absolutely fell in love with it. I live out on the fens so there aren't many Gibson dealers out here and those that there are didn't have one in stock. Fortunately, Andertons of Guildford had one on display and were prepared to let me return it for a refund if I wasn't happy so I broke every rule in the book and ordered a… Read Full Review

“For me, it's all about three things: the neck pickup,...”

Written on: 24/06/2009 by jazz349 (1 review written)

For me, it's all about three things: the neck pickup, the neck itself, and the ease of play of this little beast. The neck pickup is a Firebird humbucker, which produces a great, bluesy, jazzy tone. I play it through a Rivera Chubster and get a wonderful rich tone. It is distinctive, and I like that, because it doesn't sound like every other Gibson out there. Some say that the pickup is a tonal monster that won't clean up, but I've lowered it from the strings, which has solved that problem. The… Read Full Review

My wife calls it 'The Hot Gypsy', I think she's jealous. I no longer gig so I now use a Roland Cube 30 with the Nighthawk. A perfect combination for home use… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/04/2008 by Benni256 (1 review written)

This is my forth guitar and I have stuck with it since I have bought it. First I had two Strats, then a Firebird. I have tries out lots of other guitars and for the price I paid back then, I could not have got anything better. The Nighthawk is timeless!… Read Full Review

“In my opinion this is a great guitar that was...”

Written on: 24/01/2008

In my opinion this is a great guitar that was misunderstood when it was introduced. These are no longer made and they have become hard to find, especially in the three pickup incarnation. There are two pickup versions as well. Despite the scarcity of these on the market, he prices have not begun to escalate out of sight yet but that will happen. This guitar was designed to give you a Fender/Gibson experience and it delivers. You can do anything with this where real music is to be produced… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2008

A masterpiece! Kudo's to Gibson on this one. I'm more of a Fender player than a Gibson so the 25 1/2" scale just feels like home. Such a joy to play and it sounds great too. You can't go wrong here. It's my #1 and will stay that way. Goodbye Fender! A classic that will someday be reissued. Mark my words. Amazing guitar… Read Full Review
