  1. It's a shame they didn't have devices like this back in the day; can you imagine how it could have improved unadulterated recordings like this?
  2. That looks good enough to eat! I tend to critique the human factor on sunburst finishes, but that one is meticulously applied.
  3. Product Description: Created in an edition of only 4 guitars by the Gibson Custom Shop... That's about four too many.

  5. Dual humbuckers in adjustable rings on a resonator? Those, plus the ABR-style bridge, block inlays and modern sealed tuners all point to an inexpensive Asian build. It's certainly not old.

    New Pickups

    They are different sizes, the Bill Lawrence-designed neck pickup (Gibson designates both this and the slanted humbucker as M-Series) of the Nighthawk being the smaller of the two. If you want to install a Firebird pickup, you'll have to plug/re-drill the pickup ring hole locations on your guitar top. The Firebird pickup itself is also too wide for the Nighthawk ring. I learned all of this wanting to renew neck pickup rings and covers, as I tend to wear the gold plating off my guitars. I love the M-series pickups. - Marc (owner of several Nighthawks and a '90 Firebird V)
  7. What sounds 'just so-so' and doesn't floor you is probably the Holy Grail for someone else. There have been plenty of times I've heard someone rave about a guitar's tone or an amplified sound and I've thought to myself "I don't get it." I've quit trying to describe or qualify what sounds good and what doesn't, because each of us has our own perception of what that is - I believe good players can pick up just about anything and make interesting use of whatever sound they can get out of it. But back to your question - no, I personally don't believe there are any 'magician technicians' that can transform guitars; players do the transforming.
  8. I'd go for the ol' Exploding Guitar gag that you can pick up at any novelty shop. You know the routine: One strum, nothing - a second strum and again, nothing - player puts his/her ear close to the instrument with a quizzical look, then strums a third time, and BLAM!! Ha, ha! Gets a big chuckle out of the crowd every time!
  9. I'd be willing to bet you COULDN'T do that even if you wanted to! ;)
  10. I INSIST on having a Poker Chip on, but I make custom ones out of clear plastic with no printing; it's the best of both worlds - it's there, but you can't see it.
  11. One more - Standard in Vintage Sunburst, s/n 90587464 Is this a 1997 guitar?
  12. Seeing as I misidentified two Nighthawks built in Gibson's centennial year (1994), perhaps I've got my others wrong as well - can you confirm or correct again please, for my records? Special in Heritage Cherry, s/n 93276390 - 1996? Standard in Translucent Amber, s/n 93193305 - 1993?
  13. Wow, very interesting - thank you for the clarification! I'd heard before that Guitar Dater Project could not be relied on, but I thought it was O.K. for general info; now I know better. Thanks again!
  14. I noticed not too long ago that my two oldest Nighthawks appear to have been manufactured on two consecutive days, according to modern Gibson dating protocol, i.e. Guitar Dater Project... I thought this was a neat coincidence! Can someone confirm this, please? First off is my 1992 Special in Vintage Sunburst, s/n 94002541 - GDP says: Your guitar was made at the Nashville Plant, TN, USA on February 3rd, 1992 Production Number: 241 Then there's my 1992 Standard in Fireburst, s/n 94012977 - GDP says: Your guitar was made at the Nashville Plant, TN, USA on February 4th, 1992 Production Number: 677
