Featuring new P-90 PRO™ Single Coil Pickups plus 6-position Rotary VariTone™
Epiphone presents the new Blueshawk Deluxe, the long awaited return of the original classic first introduced in the 90s that’s been a guitar connoisseur’s favorite ever since. The Blueshawk Deluxe features the same upper bout curve and cutaway of a Les Paul but with the semi-hollowbody design and small f-holes of an Epiphone archtop. The result is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitars anywhere. And now the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features new P-90 PRO™ Single Coil pickups plus a 6-position Rotary VariTone™.
The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe's Mahogany body has a contoured back and a Maple top with a AAA Flame Maple Veneer. Both the body and neck feature single-ply cream binding. The Blueshawk comes in three beautiful color finishes--Midnight Sapphire, Translucent Black, and Wine Red.
The Mahogany neck has a classic Epiphone SlimTaper™ D-shape profile with a 25.5" scale. The Blueshawk Deluxe has a smooth Rosewood fretboard with pearloid "Diamond" inlays, a 12" radius, and 22 medium jumbo frets. The f-holes and semi-hollowbody construction along with the “Les Paul” style cutaway make the Blueshawk Deluxe well balanced and easy to play with exceptional tone and range for chords and leads.
New P-90 PRO™ Pickups
The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features new P-90 PRO™ single coil pickups. The P-90 PROs™ follow in the footsteps of the critically acclaimed ProBucker™ humbuckers and both are part of Epiphone's PRO™ series made with classic construction materials for boutique sound that anyone can afford.
The Blueshawk Deluxe features a P-90R PRO™ Single Coil in the neck position and a P-90T PRO™ Single Coil in the lead position. Inside the body there's a hum-cancelling "dummy" coil mounted between the pickups to provide hum reduction when the neck or bridge pickups are used alone. The pickups are controlled by the now classic Blueshawk 3-position pickup selector slide.
Epiphone P-90 PRO™ single coil pickups have been designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand cast Alnico V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloys to original classic Gibson dimensions. The new Epiphone P-90 PROs™ also have tin plated brass base plates like those used on 50s and 60s-era Gibson P-90 pickups
6 position Rotary VariTone™
Along with exceptional power, the Blueshawk Deluxe also offers one-of-a-kind tonal flexibility. The 6-position Rotary VariTone™ provides a player with a wide tonal palette unavailable on most other instruments. The Varitone circuit is a "notch" filter that uses a range of capacitors to achieve a reduction in frequencies at set points within the BluesHawk's overall frequency spectrum. As the VariTone™ control is rotated from position 1 to position 6 the center frequency of the filter shifts from higher to lower frequencies. In position 1, the filter is removed from the circuit. Controls include a Master Volume and a Master Tone with an easy to access Push/Pull VariTone™ True Bypass
The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features a fully adjustable Epiphone nickel bridge with a string-thru body design for incredible sustain. Tuning and intonation is made easy thanks to Epiphone Deluxe machine heads with a pro quality 18:1 tuning ratio
