Gibson N-225 Nighthawk Electric Guitar

The Gibson N-225 Electric Guitar is for guitarists who want to stand out. The striking looks aren't all this axe is about though. A P-90 pickup in the neck and Dirty Fingers Plus pickup in the bridge with coil tapping provides a huge array of sounds that can handle anything from country to blues to heavy metal.

The unique double cutaway chambered Maple body with split diamond F-holes is a design from Gibson that will turn some heads and provide great playing comfort. A short Lyre tailpiece gives the N-225 guitar a vintage vibe that is loads of fun to play with. Gig bag also included.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Gibson products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very Unique, Natural Pinstripe"
Sound: The sound of this guitar is very pleasing the the ear. From the P90 in the neck, you get very nice warm tones and a nice clearity, even when the overdrive is kicked up a few notches. With the Dirty Fingers Plus in the neck, you get a pickup that can scream the leads, or blend nicely with the rest of the band. As for comparing the N-225 to my Fender HSS Strat, I would have to say that the N-225 sounds much warmer when needed as well as rock the house when called upon to do do. Feature: The tuners do a great job at keeping the guitar in tune. However, I did get a Schaller Roller Tune-O-Matic Bridge to help keep it in tune while using the Vibrola Tailpiece. That alone made a huge difference in the playability. Ease of Use: I can get any sound I want with this guitar. I have a Marshall DSL40C that I play through. When I need some warm rhythms with a hint of crunch the P90 gets the job done. To get a much more distorted sound I switch to the Dirty Fingers Pickup on the bridge. That pickup sounds amazing whether being clean, crunch, or any other setting I can think of. That Dirty Fingers Pickup can also be split as well which even opens up more tonal possibilties. Quality: The quality on this guitar is spot on. No blemishes, no finish issues. Stays in tune, stays in tune, and stays in tune. Value: This Gibson is either you like it or hate it. I for one really love it. Manufacturer Support: The only manufacturer support i used was when I registered the guitar in case i needed warranty work. The person I talked to from Gibson was very friendly and knowledgable. The Wow Factor: The wow factor is that you very rarley see this Gibson model anywhere. That to me means a lot in that it is not a "run-of-the-mill" guitar. Overall: I have read many reviews online about this guitar. In fact, one youtube review has it as one of Gibson's 10 most weirdest guitars made. One more reason I like it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gibson Nighthawk Natural"
Overall: Never thought I'd have access to a genuinely simple but powerful guitar as this. Bought at rock bottom price from zZounds and couldn't be happier! Tonal range great, action excellent & I actually like the neck which was my biggest concern with buying my first Gibson. As to the look, you love it or hate it - I happen to have fallen in love :-)
Style of Music: catholic tastes - I do/try it all!
