MGR/Gibson Blueshawk's review"Gibson Blueshawk"

Gibson BluesHawk
I bought a blueshawk because i liked the feel and playability of the instrument. I paid 800 $ new for it. I've always liked gibsons and prefer them over fenders.


It doesn't have a pickguard...

Excellent...I wouldn't get anything else

If you want a Gibson this is the guitar to buy

Gibson BluesHawk
All this does very well résumé by unknown555!
The varnish is very good. Attention however clean guitar after each use for the paint tends "accorcher" the salets. With a basic product and a cloth, it remains impeccable.


Handle very pleasant, trslgre guitar, it does not get tired playing with standing.
Easy access to acute, nothing more.
By mcaniques against average, it is not subject champion agree!
Electronics single-use, varitone brings a little more, but honestly, if you have a programmable crankset, it's easier to get his way by changing the equalizer on prampli / amp.
Severe Acute position and the position of the microphones has the same volume, for against the intermediary position has 3 db more!


I bought this guitar 1000 euros, budget dominated by Japanese guitars and even corennes .. But there is nothing, the amricain sound, Gibson is surcrot ingalable. That is why, despite a few flaws (mcaniques), this guitar satisfies me.
In jazz, neck pickup, it keeps the biting, blues is the dream, and rock, rhythm Keith Richards, no worries, I played this guitar with a Fender Blues Junior, and c is beautiful. Today I have a VOX crankset, and I often saves me a Jazz or Blues, BUT also with pltot sounds HARD, no worries either, no feedback with a crankset. After all microphones are BIG single coils, and number of scratch HARD play with a Strat so ... Well OK this is not a BC Rich either, but if your style is more rock VINTAGE is a good deal (because even if a Strat is versatile, it remains sound JAZZ GIBSON) .... In short for the price, it's all good.


I have this guitar for 4 years.
I tried a lot of models between 800 and 1000 euros at the time, and this price, it is mostly Asian, whose finish perhaps more "catchy", so do not be fooled shape, and try the !!!
What I like the most is the lightness and of course sound, versatile enough actually.
The price quality ratio is very good for a Gibson. Gibson least chre the era c'tait a model "faded" without varnish, blah ...
I rachterais this guitar without hsiter, but now, 4 years later, I have not the models of competition head.

Gibson BluesHawk
Against US
22 frets, neck collbr /> 2 micros simple P90 (or similar)
Volume, Tone slecteur 3 positions, Varitone, a push / pull


Handle typical Gibson, but not too big
Access in acute easy, but it is not a SG
Ergonomics, lgre, balance
The holding of the agreement is not perfect, if teachers without being organized.


Plutt versatile guitar, especially a small APRS wiring modification, allowing the series connection of two microphones thanks to push / pull. In dpart it sounds like Melody Maker, with Varitone one approaches the genre telecaster, with two pickups in series it borders on the SG, but all without losing the particular grain of its own.
In short a guitar to sound varies in its clean and crunch.


I use it for 3 years, I like the original's vague concept:
semi-hollow but for show
refined look easy but its trash
QualitPrix: a Gibson for less than 1000 of OCCAZ, if it is available.
In short it's not the guitar that pleases everybody, but who can please those who are not exclusive tele / strat / lp / sg.

BluesBiker's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Gibson BluesHawk
Made in USA.Manche body type and Nighthawk of the same brand.
Special feature: the body is carved with two vents in the most beautiful effect f style 335 that open onto two small rooms résonnance.Mais the guitar is a solid-body still only half a body.
Very simple but perfect finish.
Two single coil pickups like Blues 90, edition of the famous P90
A three position selector style Strat.Un knob volume, one tone knob.
THE BONUS: A microphone hidden in the box "hum Canceling dummy coil" avoids the typical single coils hum and the selector "Varitone" dear to BB King can, but yes, 18 different sounds!
We just wish the original mechanical Gibson Deluxe, vintage of course, but averages required to issue agreement.


This guitar is incredibly fun to play, largely thanks to its low weight, a very good balance and a very nice run though the back veneer, what one can not appreciate.


Obviously this is by no means, as its name implies, a metal guitar.
on the other hand, if we remain in its register, it's only bonheur.Et well beyond the blues ...
What is surprising at first is the power and balance in acoustique.C is already warm, full, full, précis.On finds himself without work hours so that the plug is sufficient unto itself.
So in a good all-tube ...
Thanks to Varitone, sounds cover a range from 335 to warm crunchy type specific type slamming Telecaster with all the intermediate stages (and Start sounds!). A very versatile guitar, therefore, an excellent complement to a LP by example.


I dreamed for a long time to supplement my Nighthawk ST3.Je have found used 600 euros in new condition with original case and I jumped on it.
Imagine what can happen if there Fender.Vous Gibson manufactured a guitar etes.Une unique, crisp, with a great look, sound and really different "guitaristic".
This is not a model on the cheap, far from it.
Try to adopt it.
By the way, have a look on
It's a Bible in English unfortunately.
