Preowned 2000 Gibson Blueshawk Red

$ 1,299.00

Here is a pre-owned original 2000 Gibson Blueshawk in original red finish. Plays and sounds killer.

The Blueshawk has a number of distinctive features that distinguish it from virtually all other Gibsons. The Blueshawk's body outline is the same as a slightly earlier range of guitars - the Nighthawks (1993-1999) - but unlike the Nighthawks, the Blueshawk is a semi-hollow bodied guitar with twin f-holes.

Other distinctive / innovative features include:

25.5 inch scale length (the same as many Fenders, Gibsons more typically have a 24.75 inch scale length).
Through-body stringing and bridge construction - similar to the Fender Telecaster.

Blues 90 pickups (superficially resembling a P-90 pickup)
Noise reduction circuitry which employs a dummy coil
A Varitone circuit (similar to that used on the Gibson ES345) - the Varitone circuit is a mid-cut/band-stop filter with a choice of five center frequencies
The Blueshawk is a light guitar (less than 7lbs) - the body is made from poplar, capped with maple - the body is small and relatively thin and has two cavities - the hardware is minimal.
The Blueshawk has a contour carved into the back - similar to the Fender Stratocaster.
Simple control set - master volume, master tone, 3-way pickup selector, 6 way rotary Varitone control switch.
Just above the fingerboard and parallel to it, between the front (neck) pickup and the front strap pin, there is a cursive-writing emblem using paint, saying “Blues Hawk.”

Guitar is all original with original case.
