    Mine sounded pretty awesome to me hooked straight up to my ampeg tube amp with a touch up overdrive + reverb + trem... very vintage 60s rock tone. Very awesome if you ask me.

    If you roll the tone knob back a bit and use the neck pick-up on the default varitone setting (1), you can also get an awesome smooth jazz tone similar to a 335.

    For the money, this guitar can't be beat.
    guitars : Gibson SG Special(jazz/jb),Gibson Diablo SG ,ESP M2 Maple ('59 / JB), Ibanez RG2570E Prestige , Alvarez AF90SCK
    amps : '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb Re-Issue
    pedals/efx : boss me-70 + boss DS-2 + boss mt-2

    I will be looking for a nice high gain amp head in early August. Will trade anything in my sig except the M2.
    I've been playing a lot of Jazz on my ESP through my Fender DRRI lately. How metal is that?
    My favorite band is d.r.i. m/

        Cheap. 400 off of an older gentleman who sold it on craigslist. I traded it for my gibson les paul + 200 cash on my end. Pretty much a stupid trade, the Blueshawk is one of the best guitars I've ever played for vintage rock / blues / and even jazz.

        This guitar is somewhat rare and I only see it going up in value for several reasons : the 25.5" scale is awesome, blues p90s, the body binding / f-holes are usually only found on Gibsons which cost 2k+ and I personally loved the diamond inlays as well.

        The reason I sold mine was because it was more like a museum grade guitar that just sat in a corner because I was scared of scratching / dinging it up AT ALL. The finish on the maple top is VERY thin and attracts fingerpints like CRAZY on the body where I rest my picking hand and my arm. These 'sweat' stains were a complete pain in the ass to keep off of the guitar.

        I would say in all honestly, if this is what you're looking for, it wouldn't be crazy to pay up to around 650 for a near mint condition one. I *HATE* gibson pick-ups. Period. However, the blues p90s ROCKED hard for a killer vintage "Sticky Fingers"-era Rolling Stones type guitar tone.

        I shouldn't have sold it! Even for a les paul... oh well, my ibanez gets all my attention anyways. ::shrug::
