Just saw this. Pretty darn nice looking guitar, ebony fretboard. Case included, $529. I always liked the Nighthawk, but the previous version had the middle pickup, which I don’t care for. This looks like a lot of value for the money.

I bought something off a guy one time and he had one of the original Gibson versions. He raved about it, absolutely loved it. I had the previous Epiphone version, just for a brief while. Overall I liked it, but again, not crazy about a middle pickup. I also thought the inlays on the fretboard were a little too fancy. The worst thing was it turned out to be very neck heavy, reminiscent of a lot of SG models. I think that was the dealbreaker. I’m liking the look of this Nancy Wilson model much better. The previous one looked like this.

I had the same nighthawk and the same experience with the middle pickup, and the neck was too small, and I didn't like the bridge pickup. The new Nancy version looks great.

I had this Nighthawk for awhile, guitar sounded great and felt Awsome to me, but I had lots of issues with the electronics, so I traded it off. Kinda wish I hadn’t

I just don't like the shape that much, although I hear it is really easy to play.
