- Reaction score
$500 is a great price. I have a Blueshawk and it has a a variety of excellent tones: I usually play mine through a tweed Blues Jr amp.
Thanks for the post!Actually,the case is a TKL SG case.It fits my Blueshawk perfectly.Nice score Truetone - aren't they just great?
Just one thing - that case looks like a normal TKL LP type case, a little wide and deep to hold the 'hawk securely. The guitar doesn't sit properly in those cases. If you drop the case there could be a disaster. Only the original Gibson cases fit properly.
My solution - because I bought a Gator LP case for mine - was to buy some sheepskin at the market and then I cut it to shape and fitted it into the bottom of the case. Bingo! It lifts the butt of the guitar up so that it sits squarely on the neck support in the case. It's now much more secure.
But back to your guitar = awesome man.
And for any Aussies out there that need a Blueshawk: there's a cherry one up on ebay at the moment for $1200 with no bids and 2 days left. IIRC I paid $1500 for mine last year so it's a good deal I reckon.
Here is some good info about The Blueshawki have a chance to buy a 98 blueshawk. i have not yet had the chance to play it. just curious on any impressions of this guitar. i have heard him play it live and it sounds great through the marshall 800 head and cab he uses.
what has thrown me off is that i hear him play some metal all the way down to classic old hank williams with it and it sounds great. what is the deal with this guitar and is 500.00 a good price for it?
i have done a search on here but nothing really has had any information.
so if you own one or have played one chime in. i will get to play it later this week when he gets back from a show but just wanting to know what to expect. he is selling me his black one. he also has a red one that he is keeping but selling the black one to fund a late 70's les paul.
he says the case it comes with is a brown gibson case with pink lining with a fold over protector for the top of the guitar? is this a real gibson case? i have only seen black cases and with black or white linings.
thanks again in advance for any information
