Gibson's Johnny A. Signature Model

This guitar is basically new and unplayed.  Save $$$$ from a new one!
Gibson's Custom, Art, Historic division provides an atmosphere for a select group of inspired artisans to carry on Gibson's century-old tradition of creating exquisite, investment quality instruments that represent the highest standards of imaginative design and masterful craftsmanship.

From his years with J. Geils Band front man Peter Wolf to his acclaimed solo albums, Johnny A.'s passion for the guitar is proverbial. Gibson recognized Johnny's talents and created theJohnny A. Signature Model. The Johnny A. Signature Model combines the best of vintage Gibsons with innovative designs to create a guitar that is pretty unique. The body is completely hollow with a carved maple top. The outer surface is contoured to look and feel like a traditional hollowbody guitar, but the inner back is flat, cutting down on feedback and imparting a bright, snappy response. The custom neck profile and pearl inlays are coupled with more traditional Gibson features such as multi-ply binding, gold hardware, a Bigsby tailpiece, and an ebony fingerboard to create a guitar that's diving headfirst into the future while giving a knowing nod to the past.

The Unique Looks and Versatile Tones That Johnny A Demands

Guitar star Johnny A's signature model from Gibson Custom has established itself as a modern classic, and that tradition continues in grand style with the 2015 Johnny A Standard with Bigsby. Great looks are assured by a figured maple top on a 336-style hollow mahogany body for enhanced tone and comfort, while a pair of 57 Classic humbucking pickups yield everything from sweet, creamy neck tones to all the snarl and growl necessary for stinging leads. Add a Bigsby™ vibrato for emotive playing and Johnny A's 25.5-inch scale length for firm lows and shimmering highs, and it's one of the most versatile guitars in the arsenal.
