Thank you for the advise on case. I think I'll just keep my eyes open for an original case. I've seen how it fits in SG cases and don't really want to put my prized Gibson in a Epi case. I'm glad Epiphone has reissued the blueshawk and hope gibson doesn't. I can only imagine these going up in value. I have definitely fallen in love with my blueshawk. It plays and sounds like a dream. They will have to pry this guitar from my cold hands lol.

I agree. An original case would be the best. They are just hard to find & expensive.

I suppose you've already seen these;

I found another at Reverb. A bit of a beater but solid. Priced too high but it's reverb & seller may be looking for offers.

You guys that can't get your Hawks setup right must just not have learned how too yet?
I've got .010"s on the Blueshawk & it's action is very low with zero buzz & the tone is just astounding , I've got very little relief in the necks of either one of these guitars, BTW the Nighthawk has .009"s on it..

Bringing an old thread back from the dead as the Blueshawk will be reissued soon enough.. 25th Year Coming Up!!

Hi, Recently i bought a beautiful Blueshawk, second hand, from Light Sound Music store. I would like to find out wether the Gibson headstock logo is inlayed (because it looks like a sticker). I would like to know how can i possibly be sure of the Authenticity of the guitar... i'm quite concerned about it. No logo at the potentiometer, i'm not sure about the bone nut, and the body binding is not as we usually expect from Gibson guitar, the serial number is almost below the peg machines, "Made in U.S.A" is not centered. I understand that this model is from an unexpensive line, but i want to be 100% sure that i didn't buy a fake Gibson. Something i will never ever do!!!! By the way, the guitar sound AWESOME!!!!....So...Somebody can help me ?...guys, Thanks in Advaance.Attached File  BluesHawk(5).jpg (141.65K)

Looks good to me and it's a beauty… What did you pay for it if you don't mind telling… I don't think the blues hawk was a popular enough or expensive enough guitar for anyone to consider making counterfeits. I don't think I have ever seen one that has a bigsby on it before so it's either a rare one or someone had it modded. Either way just enjoy the guitar, if you got it for a good price you did very well….

Great looking BluesHawk Max. And yes the Maestro Trem was a factory option.

It is interesting that most of the Maestros seem to have ended up on blue Blueshawks. [smile]

Do the hardtail and the Bigsby equiped have different neck angle? Because the pic above shows how high the pups has to be raised. I had to rout my hardtail Blueshawk to make the roller bridge fit. I couldn't find any Information on that. As the blueshawk.info site is closed...
Maybe somebody of you guys knows about that.
Have great day!

For all Blueshawk-Lovers. The blueshawk.info site is shut down since a few months - why I don't know, but the guy who made it was sick as far as I know. Maybe he couldn't handle it any longer, but I hope he's alright.
Anyways, I found a site where you can look at the homepage as PDF.
Click here -> My link

I will upgrade my Blueshawk with golden Mini-Humbuckers from bg-pups.com - hopefully they will arrive next week. Once I had this combination with Gibson Minis but they where not good balanced. The bridge where too low in output but I loved the sound of the Mini-humbuckers so hopefully this time it'll be a good Set - although I always had amazing stuff from Mr. Bryan Gunsher so no concerns here.

Just wanted to give you all the chance to see those informations from the blueshawk site.

Greetings from sunny Austria [thumbup]

I received the Mini Humbuckers a few days ago.
What a great guitar. Now it sounds like it grown up.
While I have had to wait for the pups I tried the stock pups, just for fun, but after half an hour I put them away. I'll keep them, just in case I'd ever sell her (no Way 😉) but I'd never use them again. Any pup would sound better than the Blues90 - that's my personal meaning.
In this guitar I have tried P90 (this was not my sound), than Gibson Mini Humbucker (they sounded great but where not good matched, the bridge was too low in output and could not keep up with the neck), than I put in Häussel Tronebucker (very good pups - now installed in a Strat), after that I thought I need TV-Jones T-Armonds for 50s Rock&Roll but Pups alone can not do miracles. Although they are really unbelieveable great pups they didn't stand out, played with the whole band.
So I thought, what was the best pup/guitar combination I had? The Minis where the only solution for me. And I was right. This is the sound I had in my head - they are hotter then normal Minis (10,7k &12,7k) but they clean up nicely but when I turn up the volume knob they punch you in the face.
