Nighthawk Studio

Possibly Gibson's most innovative, player-friendly body style in the past 30 years. Throughout its evolution the Nighthawk has continued to be the choice of players demanding a marriage of Gibson tradition with clever modern design features. Newly updated, the Nighthawk Studio features a new pickup array and switching, new tonewoods and three stunning new finish options - Goldtop (all-body finish) with gold top-hat knobs, Pelham Blue (all-body finish) with black top-hat knobs, and Silverburst with black top-hat knobs, all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. Electronics include a pair of Gibson's most highly acclaimed humbucking pickups, with a simple control complement that's nevertheless extremely versatile thanks to independent coil-split switching, offering six entirely different tones. All this, and the Nighthawk Studio is superbly playable, thanks to the first-class craftsmanship you have come to expect from Gibson USA.
