Vintage 1993 GIBSON NIGHTHAWK SPECIAL SP-2 1st Production Year Black +HSC 53336


Regular price $1,199

 

A vintage guitar with Gibson attributes--maple capped body and set neck--but notable for borrowing Fender-like features such as a 25.5-inch scale neck, string-thru design, and lighter weight. Comes with nice SKB TSA-grade case.

Description
This 1993 Gibson Nighthawk was produced the first year they made this guitar. Notable for its 25.5-inch Fender-like scale, it was only produced for five years and was not a hit at the time. However, players have come to prize the features such as Gibson set neck and quality without the heavy weight of a Les Paul. The mini-humbucker and slanted humbucker pickups allow for different tones than the usual Gibson. This is a natural relic and has wear consistent with being a 29-year-old player's axe (see pics). Frets show mild wear. Weight is very comfortable 7 pounds, 1 ounce. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

Guitar Setup
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
