EPIPHONE NIGHTHAWK CUSTOM REISSUE FIREBURST
The Return of a NEW Classic!
When the Nighthawk was first introduced in 1993, it represented a departure from “tradition” with its 25.5″ scale length and its versatile combination of coil-splitting humbucker and single coil pickups. Break-through designs don’t always catch on right away. Such was the case with many now-iconic guitars including the Flying-V, the Explorer and even the Les Paul. Now, 18 years later, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk as too “different,” now recognize what a great guitar it really was and still is! Great Tonewoods & Premium Construction! The design of the Nighthawk is essentially a combination of an SG (with a lower bout and thinner body) and a Les Paul (upper bout). Like those classic guitars, the Nighthawk features a solid mahogany body (with added “belly” scarf for comfort) and a glued-in SlimTaper™ 25 1/2″ scale mahogany neck for a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain. The headstock is back-angled at 14 degrees, which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay firmly in nut slots. To add brilliance as well as a smooth, durable playing surface, the Nighthawk Custom is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard, a favorite of serious guitar players for its resistance to wear.
Combined with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by 24/7/365 Customer Service, you can rest assured that the Nighthawk Classic will give you years of worry-free performance. So if you missed out on the first Nighthawks because you thought they were a little too “different,” now’s your chance to redeem yourself and pick up this NEW classic for a great price!

Great Tone Woods & Premium Construction!
The design of the Nighthawk Custom Reissue is essentially a combination of an SG (with a lower bout and thinner body) and a Les Paul (upper bout). Like those classic guitars, the Nighthawk Custom Reissue features a solid mahogany body (with added “belly” scarf for comfort) and a glued-in SlimTaper™ 25 1/2″ scale mahogany neck for a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain. The headstock is back-angled at 14 degrees which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay firmly in nut slots. To add brilliance as well as a smooth, durable playing surface, the Nighthawk Custom Reissue is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard, a favorite of serious guitar players for its resistance to wear and hardness, which contributes to the Nighthawk’s rich tone.
Versatility and Function!
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-splitting tone knob, you have 9 different “tones” at your fingertips. From a powerful and warm humbucker to the unique clarity of a mini-HB to a thin, bright single-coil – and everything in-between. Finally, you can cover all the classic sounds in one guitar. The Alnico II pickups are double-wax-potted to avoid microphonics at high volume and can be dialed-in with a single volume control. The master tone control features a push-pull switch to split the coils of the bridge pickup, allowing for quick and unique tone changes. And don’t forget, the Nighthawk’s nickel bridge with its “string-thru” body design which ensures maximize resonance and sustain. The bridge also features individual saddles for independent height and intonation adjustment.
Killer Looks & Premium Features!
One of the first things you notice about the Nighthawk Custom Reissue is the gorgeous, rich finish and the pearloid “crown” inlays on the fingerboard. The Nighthawk Custom Reissue is available in your choice of Fireburst, Honeyburst, Trans Amber, and Transblack. Premium 14:1 ratio Grover® machine heads, an industry standard for professional instruments, provide excellent tuning accuracy and stability while Epiphone’s heavy-duty output jack and long-lasting 1″ potentiometers make for worry-free operation.
