The Gibson® Nighthawk™ was a very forward-thinking guitar when it was first introduced in 1993. Essentially, it combined the lower bout and thin body of an SG® with the stout, curvy upper bout of a Les Paul® and a 25 1/2" scale. What really made it unique was its pickup combination, which included Gibson's NHT bridge position humbucker, mounted on a slant, together with a single-coil middle pickup and a mini-humbucker in the neck position. If guitarists wanted replacement pickups for the unique Slant NHT humbucker, their options were extremely limited.
Now, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk as too "different" are recognizing what a great guitar it really is. That's why Gibson's Epiphone® division is introducing the Nighthawk Custom Reissue. One huge difference is the availability of Seymour Duncan after-market pickups for the Nighthawk's Slant NHT bridge position humbucker.
The world's most popular humbucker. Provides slammin' output while retaining singing highs, aggressive harmonics, and just the right blend of sustain and distortion. Goes from sweet warm tones to raw rock 'n' roll. Compared to the SH-14 Custom 5, the JB has a stronger treble detail. Some players use it with 250K pots to smooth out the highs. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
