    Hey all. Well I tried. I didn't go looking at a guitar for almost a month. Wasn't thinking about getting one. Had no desire for one, nor need for one...... sighs and shakes his head.

    Went to a store in Orlando, and wanted strings. And ONLY strings mind you, and..... walked out the door with this, and completely forgot about the damn strings too!

    1997 Gibson Blueshawk.
    25 1/2" scale mahogany neck, poplar body with maple "cap" (ie: veneer.) two "blues 90" pickups, dummy coil in the back, varitone,, 3 way, vol/tone, and a push pull on the tone pot bypass the varitone.

    BEAUTIFUL soft V neck. nice rosewood board, nice frets, really evil sounding neck pickup, without any hum. And for about the same as the new Epiphone version.

    Those are great sounding guitars :)

    I played a show with the gents from the Canadian band "Wide Mouth Mason" and their guitar player got some amazing tones with one of those and a couple of 59 Bassman reissues.
    Around 97 if I recall.

    Congrats on a looker of a guitar!!

    I've always dug the idea of the Hawk series, but I've never played one. Let's hear your impressions once you've got a couple of hours with it?

    HNGD, bud.
