    Was about to start a new thread elsewhere as my searches drew a blank and thought this might be better.

    I had wanted an original 90s Nighthawk for some time, but wasn't sure about the pickups and people selling seemed to think that abuse should be rewarded with a premium price. Not from me, it doesn't.

    I picked up a later one earlier this year, but have two questions.

    1) Does anyone have a wiring diagram for three pickup (MH/NSX/MHB) and would it be the same as the earlier edition? The Gibson seems to have some really nifty switching, so I imagine is not the same.

    2) Also, does anyone have any tech specs for the NSX single coil? I keep drawing a blank everywhere I look.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Thanks, Paruwi. That's. beautiful black trans one. I have an amber trans.

    I saw that diagram on a Gibson page, but assumed the Epis would be done more simply, with just coil splits o the HBs.

    Really interested in finding out what makes up the NSX pickup. I really like it – and I usually only use a middle pickup, it is with neck or bridge pickups. Except for my Ibanez Roadstars, as that is a fantastic SC.
