Lives up to my expectations from Gibson

What is your overall opinion of this product?
This iteration of the Nighthawk is just right. I think the combo of the sweet mini hum and burstbucker is great, esp with the coil taps. I took a risk ordering this one from dent and scratch and as you all know they can't tell you a thing about what damage had been done. For the discount I got I expected a gash bent tuners non working electronics or even no case. When I got the box open there was a case with maybe one small imperfection on it. With one eye closed I opened the case and began to inspect. I found nothing wrong with the electronics or general finish. Someone turkey didn't know how to adjust the truss rod and it was slack with a huge bow and the the truss rod cover had a crack by the nut screw. That's it! In 5 minutes the neck was straight and she was even well intonated. I own many Gibsons, Fenders, PRSs and Taylors so I have plenty of fine axes to compare this NW Nighthawk to and I think it's in top 3 for tone playability/comfort and looks!
