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.

Astonishing Value

By 

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 

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 

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.

Solid tone in a versatile package

By 

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!

Blueshawk

By 

from Orange, CA

First I had one in red. My daughter loved it so much, I gave it to her. I Missed it when it was gone, and I got another in black. It is even better in black, still lightweight, so many good sounds, now 2 other friends of mine want one...Great little guitar, one of 20 guitars I own...one of my most favorite. Price is right, American made...It's like a secret not many know about.
