    I have a question about a Blueshawk Deluxe that I bought recently on my local Craigslist. All of the pictures I see of these guitars have white pup covers and a black chickenhead knob on the varitone switch. Mine has black pup covers and the varitone is a knurled metal knob with a dot on the top. The guitar is midnight sapphire blue and does have the epiphone insignia on the back of the headstock indicating 2016 build date.
    Any input on these differences? Thanks.
    Sadly my picture files are "too large". I may have to retake them in the morning.

    The soapbar covers are easy enough to swap out as is the knob. Might have just been customized a bit but I have only ever seen antique white covers on them in stock form.

    Yeah, someone just swapped covers and knob. Happens all the time. Must look better than with white covers.

    bh1.JPG I put a new chicken head knob on today and I do prefer the black pup covers. But I'm probably going to sell this guitar and I'm just trying to determine what's what. This guitar was not quite semi-hollow enough for me. I picked up a 339 that really fits what I was looking for. Thanks guys.

    Good luck with the sale. And you have to show us the 339. It's against the International Convention of Guitar Forum Decorum to mention a guitar you won without showing it.. :)

    It's like bra or braless. No brainer.

    I agree. Without it is. Or I guess we could say Braless. I'm not going to burn the pickguard though.
