This is an absolute brilliant guitar!!
Big respect!!! If Gibson would do a new series of Blueshawks the way you did instead of the Nighthawk09 they'd sell more then they do now with the "BFG-Nighthawk09".
How much did this project cost?
I like the top.
I got the blue one and moded it with Gibby Mini-HB.
Thanks for your response and your kind words. This project cost me almost as much as you could buy a used original BluesHawk for (£450- 500) for all parts and good Tone Wood. Bare knuckles Pickups were £140, but you get what you pay for and it has turned out better than I hoped for.
The Varitone is not all that, it seems to steal tone rather than add to it and played clean I get some fantastic tone without it.
I have seen the new range of NightHawks, very bland looking and seem to lack the character of the originals to look at. Cannot comment on what they sound like though as not played one.
Thanks for you interest.
I had this link forwarded to me from a guitar builder in the USA who was interested in dimensions, I had given up getting any response from the Forum and no longer use it.
Building a Jazzmaster this year and just joined "Ofset Guitars Forum". This is what a Forum should be like.
