    I bought my BluesHawk in '98 and it's still my main squeeze for all styles. ES-345 meets NightHawk with a P-90 twist, all the versatility of both instruments combined in one. A great guitar for everyone, especially those with an ear for the blues. The Blues-90 pickups give a rich, full tone, with lower output than original P-90's, allowing you to play hard without signal distortion if you please. Dummy coil eliminates noise just like humbuckers would. Some complain about the tuning keys, but I find that they add a great vintage look and feel and work just fine. I reccommend schaller straplocks and a Little Lucille hardshell case. Electronics are solid - no poor connections or wiring. I've had to clean the volume pot once, but that's normal. Absolutely no complaints. Great value.

    Nice guitar, but not Gibson's best

    Lots of features and ability to change your tone. The tuners are crap and the finish isn't top of the line. Nice and lightweight compared to Gibson LPs.

    for the money this is the best guitar on the market. it plays easily. it sounds great and is very versitile. The veritone switch adds flexibility. you can make any sound you want.

    nice hole

    By gas man-rXX3P

    from medford or

    I bought this guitar from a street merchant in Mexico. it was kind of pricey, but with the hole in it I figured I could keep all my unmentionables in it and not have to wear my fanny pack. it sounds very bright and clean and has very little feedback for a semi hollow body type guitar. for natural dampening one might fill the hole w/ skittles and reese's pieces. be warned- chocolate melts under hot lights. most shows end w/ brown hands and plenty of applause.

    Astonishing Value

    By Loupeman

    from nyc

    This I truly could not put down. A beautifully proportioned small-bodied Gibson with a tone like a bell. Responsive and easy to drive. The neck is as good as I have ever played and it stays in tune for weeks at a time. The high gloss black is a fingerprint magnet and I changed the pick-up covers to black but these are minor details compared to the bang for the buck. I got the hardshell case too - I'm not wild about putting an investment such as this in a gig bag, no matter how "padded"....all in all a terrific piece of gear and most highly recommended.

    I own 2... any questions?

    By Texas Jimmy D

    from Bellingham, WA

    The range of settings allows for reproducing ANY guitar tone you've heard. The string-thru-body gives great sustain. The lightness of the guitar makes it easy to play for hours on end. Most of my friends love the many tones it produces.

    It's so versatile!

    By Jaynote23

    from Anderson, SC

    A huge collection without a Gibson in it - until now. I really like the playability and range of sounds from this little tonemonster. So light, so versatile; sounds great with a Fender tube amp without any pedals. A standout on classic blues, classic rock, and traditional country - kinda like an ES-335.

    Dem Blues

    By Insp. Cluseau

    from Newnan, Georgis, USA

    I looked at and played thi sguitar in the stores for 5 years before finally buying one. I have had it since 2001. The tone is as diverse as the choices using the Varitone. The only draw back was the tuners. The guitar would not stay in tune. I replaced the tuners with Grover sealed units and tuning holds. The guitar is lightweight and will not tire you out after hanging around your neck. The Grover tuners did make the guitar top heavy but still comfortable. I need to clean the volume pot and the dummy coil went out once but over-all I really love this axe. I have had a Standard Strat and Ibanez Talman electric. The Strat was good but the Blueshawk is awesome. Get one if you can.

    Solid tone in a versatile package

    By DaBlues-hHCvC

    from Ontario Canada

    I have owned mine for a year. It was poorly setup from the factory but since a pro setup it is brilliant. Endless variety of tone, beautiful looks, light, strong acoustic voice, smooth neck, quiet. 18 tones in one. My number 1 guitar. Check out www.blueshawk.info!
