The Epiphone Nighthawk Custom Reissue, Electric Guitar, is essentially a combination of an SG (lower bout and thinner body) and a Les Paul (upper bout). Like those classic guitars, it features a solid Mahogany body (with added "belly" scarf for comfort) and a glued-in SlimTaper Mahogany neck giving it a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain.
To add brilliance as well as a smooth, durable playing surface, the Nighthawk Custom is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard. For even more tonal spice as well as killer looks, a AAA Flame Maple veneer is glued to the top. And don't forget, the Nighthawk bridge with it's "string-thru" body design ensures even more sustain and power. Versatility and Function! With it's 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-tapping 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 - you can do it all. Killer Looks&Premium Features! Epiphone is known for making great, affordable instruments and the Nighthawk Custom is no exception. One of the first things you notice is the gorgeous Flame Maple top in rich, see-through finishes and the mother-of-pearl "crown" inlays on the fingerboard. Premium 14:1 ratio Grover(tm) machine heads make for excellent tuning accuracy and stability while Epiphone's heavy-duty output jack and long-lasting 1" potentiometers make for worry-free opertion.
When the Nighthawk was first introduced in 1993, it represented a departure from Gibson "tradition" with it's 25.5" scale length and it's versatile combination of coil-tappable humbucking and single pickups. Now, 18 years later, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk as too "different" now recognize what a great guitar it really was and is! Great Tone Woods&Premium Construction!

I got one of these a few months ago just as a back up guitar for my band, and I had to switch to this for the last song, it was unreal how amazing it was, especially when using it straight to the amp and through my pedals, love the tone that I get with the mini humbucker and my chorus pedal. Now I'm going to be getting another one as a main guitar!

Excellent guitar for the price and a huge variety of different ways to change the tone. Fantastic quality. I’d definitely recommend it for someone that wants a good quality guitar for a decent price!
