  1. I just purchased an Epiphone Blues Custom 30 amp and am looking for suggestions on tubes. I replaced the Sovtek 5881s with a set of RSD 6L6GC (Rohren Von Weltruf) that I had on hand and that improved the sound considerably. Anyone have suggestions for the preamp section? Thank You
  2. OK, a little late to the game but I just picked up one of these and have a good collection of vintage tubes to try. Any recommendations?
  3. I like the 60's Tribute, but the Arctic white with ebony fretboard is my favorite.
  4. I just purchased an Epi Prophecy GX with Dirty Finger pickups. Does anyone have information sheets for this guitar, the new GX has a stick-pin design on the headstock instead of the tribal design. Appreciate any information.
  5. See the attached document Copied from the Epiphone website: Monday, January 03, 2011 The Return of a New Classic... The Nighthawk Custom! Specifications Body Material: Mahogany Top Material: AAA Flame Maple Veneer Neck Material: Mahogany Neck Shape: SlimTaper; D-shaped Neck Joint: Glued-In Truss Rod: Adjustable Scale Length: 25.5" Fingerboard Material: Ebony w/mother-of-pearl "Crown" inlays Fingerboard Radius: 12" Frets: 22; medium-jumbo Bridge Pickup: Slant NHT Humbucker; 4-wire Middle Pickup: NSX Single-Coil Neck Pickup: NHR Mini-Humbucker; 4-wire Controls: 5-Way
  6. I also have an Ebony fretboard. I did notice that it is now listed as having a Rosewood fretboard. I pre-ordered mine as I had been trying to get my hands on one for a while, so got mine 2/20/2011. One of the earlier ones and I am glad I did. I copied the website for the Nighthawk into a word document on 1/22/2011 and it listed the fretboard as ebony.
