With specific appointments including his signature fretboard and headstock inlay.
By merging timeless tone and taste with utterly contemporary technique, Johnny A has earned a reputation as one of the most talented guitarists working today. The original Johnny A Signature guitar became one of Gibson Customs most popular artist models right from its unveiling in 2003.
Now the new Johnny A brings the same blend of classic appointments and original design forward with a host of great new features, in a superbly versatile new semi-acoustic electric guitar that youll want to call your own. This particular model also features an exquisite, quilted maple top.
Blending features of Gibsons big archtops of the past with innovative techniques of today, the Johnny A Signature is crafted by Gibson Custom with a œthinline body routed from a single piece of select Grade-A mahogany, capped with a two-piece figured maple top.
Unique Johnny A œscimitar f-holes, elegant multi-ply binding, and a luscious Sunset Glow finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer set the foundation for an extremely classy look. The quarter-sawn mahogany neck has the longer 25 1/2" scale length and rounded profile that Johnny A prefers. Unique inlays in a bound, Ebony fingerboard and custom headstock and gold-plated hardware complete the picture.
Two of Gibsons immensely popular 57 Classic humbucking pickups offer that legendary blend of PAF-style warmth and bite, while a genuine Bigsby vibrato lends retro twang and wobble when you want it. Includes a hardshell Custom Shop case and Custom Crimson Certificate of Authenticity.
