I own Gibson Les Paul's, Fenders and several other brands. I was carrying 3 or 4 guitars to jobs for years. I bought this Nighthawk just to
see if was worth playing.
I have been impressed! I really like getting different sounds from all my guitars. My LP has the Seymour Duncan Triple Shot pickups and switching system. I love those things too.
The Bass player told me the Nighthawk sounds a lot like the
'58 Tele RI, 95 Les Paul and 95 Strat I have been using live!!
Beats the crap out of changing guitars all the time!
And NO! It does not sound exactly like the other guitars, but it's really close!
Now I mostly take the Nighthawk and a Martin and cover all guitar sounds.
