The Nighthawk Turns 20!

This Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk solidbody electric guitar celebrates one of the coolest and most overlooked guitars in recent history. Having never reached the success of the Les Paul or the SG, the Gibson Nighthawk is, nonetheless, one of those instruments that's attracted fierce loyalty in the guitarists who play them. And when you pick up your 20th Anniversary Nighthawk for the firs time, you'll know why. With its 25.5"-scale neck and contoured body, the Nighthawk just feels right, and its trio of various pickups deliver a tonal range that's nothing shy of epic. If you want a unique and beautiful instrument, order your Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk today.

Classic Nighthawk rebellious style and spirit

Celebrate the success of one of Gibson's most unconventional guitars with this 20th Anniversary Nighthawk. Back in 1993 when the Nighthawk first hit the scene, its 25-1/2" scale, coil-tappable humbuckers, and angular single cutaway body shape struck a lot of diehard Gibson fans as a serious departure from the traditional style. The model quickly fell out of favor and was discontinued until '98. A funny thing happened over the next decade as Nighthawks found their way into the hands of a new wave of guitarists via pawnshops, and people started to realize just how cool this tone-loaded axe could be. Now you too can rediscover this unique guitar with a limited-edition 20th Anniversary Nighthawk from Sweetwater.

An unusual pickup combo delivers tons of tone

One of the most notable things about the Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk is its rather strange set of pickups, which account for the extended range of tone you can get from this solidbody electric guitar. Up at the neck, there's a mini humbucker designed to deliver a smooth and slightly dark tone with decidedly scooped mids. Contrast that with a brighter and more dynamic single-coil in the middle position. And to top it off, the 20th Anniversary Nighthawk sports a slanted Burstbucker back at the bridge, which you can coil tap for an extended range of tone.

Traditional tonewoods meet gorgeous gold hardware

You just can't beat the Gibson recipe for tone, which is why they built the 20th Anniversary Nighthawk with a solid mahogany body topped with exquisite AAA flame maple and a mahogany neck topped with a bound rosewood fretboard. The result is warm and punchy bass, smooth mids, and bright and chiming highs, not to mention looks that are out of this world! Add to that the string-through-body setup and fully adjustable bridge, and you'll also get plenty of sustain and stability from your 20th Anniversary Nighthawk.

Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A limited-edition solidbody electric guitar celebrating on of Gibson's rarest rockers
  • Solid mahogany body topped with AAA flame maple delivers full, well-balanced tone
  • Mahogany neck with bound rosewood fingerboard gives you smooth playing action
  • 3 distinct pickups give you the full spectrum of humbucking and single-coil tone
  • Custom hardshell case included
Celebrate a legend with this Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk!
