The Gibson® NighthawkGäó was a very forward-thinking guitar when it was first introduced in 1993. Essentially, it combined the lower bout and thin body of an SG® with the stout, curvy upper bout of a Les Paul® and a 25 1/2" scale. What really made it unique was its pickup combination, which included Gibson's NHT bridge position humbucker, mounted on a slant, together with a single-coil middle pickup and a mini-humbucker in the neck position. If guitarists wanted replacement pickups for the unique Slant NHT humbucker, their options were extremely limited.

Now, guitarists who originally dismissed the Nighthawk as too "different" are recognizing what a great guitar it really is. That's why Gibson's Epiphone® division is introducing the Nighthawk Custom Reissue. One huge difference is the availability of Seymour Duncan after-market pickups for the Nighthawk's Slant NHT bridge position humbucker.

Seymour Duncan's Slant NHT Nighthawk pickups will come in two legendary voicings: The '59 ModelGäó and the JB ModelGäó.

The '59 is Seymour Duncan's take on the celebrated "Patent Applied For" humbucker, and its wound on the very same Leesona Model 102 winding machine that produced the early P.A.F. humbuckers. The output is vintage, and the tone is clear and crystalline.

The hot-rodded JB ModelGäó is the world's most popular humbucker. Its powerful coil windings give it loads of output, but it retains its punchy upper-midrange detail.

  • - '59: 8.13O
  • - JB: 16.4kO full output
  • Resonant Peak
  • - '59: 6kHz
