Epiphone presents the Blueshawk Deluxe, the long awaited return of an original classic first introduced in the 90’s that’s been a connoisseur’s favorite ever since. The Blueshawk Deluxe features the upper bout curve and cutaway of a Les Paul but with the semi-hollowbody design and small f-holes of an archtop. The result is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitars anywhere. And now the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features new P-90 PRO Single Coil pickups plus a 6-position Rotary VariTone.

The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features a Mahogany body with a contoured back and a Maple top with an AAA Flame Maple Veneer. Both the body and the neck feature single-ply cream binding. The Blueshawk comes in beautiful color finishes.
The Mahogany neck has a classic Epiphone SlimTaper D-shape profile with a 25.5” scale. The Blueshawk Deluxe has a smooth Rosewood fretboard with pearloid “Diamond” inlays, a 12” radius, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The f-holes and semi-hollowbody construction along with the “Les Paul” style cutaway make the Blueshawk Deluxe well balanced and easy to play with exceptional tone and range for chords and leads.
Epiphone P-90 PRO single coil pickups have been designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand cast Alnico V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloys to original classic Gibson dimensions. And for you sticklers to detail, the new Epiphone P-90 PROs also have tin plated brass base plates like those used on 50s and 60s era Gibson P-90 pickups.
Along with exceptional power, the Blueshawk Deluxe also offers one-of-a-kind tonal flexibility. The 6-position Rotary VariTone provides a player with a wide tonal palette unavailable on most other instruments. The Varitone circuit is a "notch" filter that uses a range of capacitors to achieve a reduction in frequencies at set points within the BluesHawk's overall frequency spectrum. As the VariTone control is rotated from position 1 to position 6 the center frequency of the filter shifts from higher to lower frequencies. In position 1 the filter is removed from the circuit. Controls include a Master Volume and a Master Tone with an easy to access Push/Pull VariTone True Bypass.
The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features a fully-adjustable Epiphone nickel bridge with a string-thru body design for incredible sustain. Tuning and intonation is made easy thanks to Epiphone Deluxe machine heads with a pro quality 18:1 tuning ratio.
