The Hawk is one of Gibson's wacky and wild 90's single cuts that were made as an attempt to make a more affordable single cut that looked newer than their venerable Les Paul. While maybe not as svelte and sexy as the Paul, this sleek shape still knows how to keep up and rock out with the best of them. Stand out in your next gig or jam session with this badass beauty!
