The return of a classic
The limited edition Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe Electric Guitar is here to bring back one of the most popular models of the 1990's. A unique shape crafted from high quality tone woods and some very interesting electronics culminate in this desirable and delicious electric guitar.
The body of the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe is created from mahogany and sports a contoured back. This compliments the AAA grade flamed maple top complete with "f" holes. The fundamental sound that the Blueshawk can produce is impressive in its own right. The inclusion of the upper bout curve and cutaway of a Les Paul also delivers a familiar and comfortable feel to the player.
The neck is also crafted from mahogany and is shaped to a SlimTaper "D" profile that is very comfortable to both new and experienced players. The neck is glued into the body and features single-ply cream binding, just as the body does.
The rosewood fingerboard of the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe is of the rosewood variety and houses 22 medium-jumbo frets along with pearloid "diamond" inlays.
A wealth of tone
The Blueshawk Deluxe features P-90T PRO pickups in the bridge and neck position, but there is a twist. Inside the body in the middle position is a hum-cancelling "dummy" coil mounting helping to deliver some staggering tone.
Making sure that you are in total control, the Blueshawk Deluxe uses a 6-position Rotary VariTone switch and 3 way pickup switch selector as well as the usual master tone and volume controls. Make no mistake, the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe is capable of generating some huge yet intricate sounds that will lend itself to many playing styles.
