Great Tone Woods & Premium Construction!
The design of the Nighthawk Custom Reissue is essentially a combination of an SG (with a lower bout and thinner body) and a Les Paul (upper bout). Like those classic guitars, the Nighthawk Custom Reissue features a solid mahogany body (with added "belly" scarf for comfort) and a glued-in SlimTaper™ 25 1/2" scale mahogany neck for a well rounded, warm tone with excellent sustain. The headstock is back-angled at 14 degrees which increases pressure on the strings and helps them stay firmly in nut slots. To add brilliance as well as a smooth, durable playing surface, the Nighthawk Custom Reissue is fitted with a rosewood fingerboard, a favorite of serious guitar players for its resistance to wear and hardness, which contributes to the Nighthawk's rich tone.
