Product Description

The Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Standard Guitar celebrates the traditional yet innovative guitar Gibson first introduced in 1993. Gibson loads this beautiful instrument with all the features that has made the Nighthawk a favorite among Gibson fans. These features on the 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Standard include a 25.5-inch scale length for firm lows and chiming highs, comfortable Nighthawk body contours, through-body stringing and a unique Nighthawk bridge.

Additionally, Gibson USA loads this limited edition guitar with a trio of different yet complementary pickups, with push-pull coil splitting for the bridge pickup. A high-gloss nitrocellulose finish over a gorgeous figured Grade-AAA maple top, deluxe split parallelogram fingerboard inlays, gold-hardware, and a truss-rod cover hot-stamped in gold with ‘Nighthawk 20th Anniversary’ make this the most head-turning Nighthawk yet!

Gibson 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Standard Guitar Features

  • Mahogany body with figured Grade-AAA maple top
  • Mahogany neck with comfortable rounded profile
  • Rosewood fingerboard with split parallelogram inlays
  • Mini-Humbucker in the neck, a NSX Nighthawk Single-Coil in the middle and a Nighthawk Lead Humbucker in the bridge position
  • Vintage-style ‘Gibson Deluxe’ tuners with 14:1 ratio
Body and Neck
The 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Standard’s body follows the Nighthawk’s stylized take on Gibson’s legendary Les Paul, with a scaled-down body with deeper cutaway, and ribcage contour for enhanced playing comfort. Its top is made from figured Grade-AAA maple, and its back is solid mahogany. A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck with a 25.5-inch scale length is glued into the body and carved in a comfortably rounded profile.

The guitar has a bound fingerboard made from solid Grade-A rosewood, inlaid with split parallelogram position markers. A Corian nut cut on Gibson’s computer-controlled PLEK helps to ensure optimum sustain and precise intonation.

Pickups and Electronics
Gibson made sure the 20th Anniversary Nighthawk Standard has unparalleled versatility thanks to its trio of pickups. The Nighthawk Mini-Humbucker in the neck position offers a rich, throaty growl, but with plenty of definition; an NSX Nighthawk Single-Coil in the middle offers both snappy funk tones and thumping midrange; and the Nighthawk Lead Humbucker in the bridge position yields tones from mammoth crunch to articulate, singing lead sounds. Just pop up the tone control’s push-pull switch to tap brighter single-coil sounds, and blend myriad combinations of these with the five-way switch.

Hardware and Plastics
Through-body stringing and a rock-solid Nighthawk bridge lend superb resonance and massive sustain to this high-concept guitar. The bridge, strap buttons, and vintage-style ‘Gibson Deluxe’ tuners are all gold-plated, as are the pickup’s mounting rings and the neck pickup cover. Amber ‘top-hat’ knobs lend an air of Gibson tradition, and the guitar wears no pickguard to obscure the beauty of its highly figured top.
