Thanks for the link to my review! It was purely by chance that I got mine yesterday. I was so ready to pull the trigger on a '59 Reissue, then the sales guy - whom I trust - pulled the Nighthawk down. The reissue will just have to wait for now. The Nighthawk is a spectacular guitar, and the P90/BB3 pickup combo is oh-so-sweet!
Not sure how to read the serial number: 021790301. Maybe #301? But there's also a 29 written in silver paint on the back of the headstock. So maybe #29? Dunno.I've had mine for a few months now, since before Christmas - see the photos above. The neck on mine is quite chubby, not really 60's thin. Outstanding guitar though, great feel and tone. I've got number 72, what did you get GoofyD?
Wow! Thanks for the info! Funny thing, the guys at the store said they got it a few months ago, right when they came out, but until I came along, no one really took an interest. I guess the body shape may not appeal to people. Oh well, as I always say... more for me, then.Yours is number 29 of 350 then.
i can't resist to show you my 1996 special 3 Nighthawk :
