A true Epiphone Classic

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed .2014 Nighthawk Custom Quilt celebrates one of Epiphone’s most original and treasured designs with a beautiful custom AAA Quilt Maple Veneer Top. When the Nighthawk was first introduced in 1993, it was a truly modern guitar--a complete departure from "tradition" with its 25.5" scale length and its versatile combination of coil-splitting humbucker and single coil pickups. Break-through designs don't always catch on right away. Such was the case with many now-iconic guitars including the Flying-V, the Explorer and even the Les Paul. But original Nighthawk fans knew it was a supremely versatile axe that made it possible for one player to sound like a dozen different guitars at the flip of a switch. And today, a new generation is discovering the Ltd Ed 2014 Nighthawk Custom Quilt and its powerful pickup combination and beautiful finish.
