By merging timeless tone and taste within 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 Custom’s 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 you’ll want to call your own. Blending features of Gibson’s big arch tops of the past with innovative techniques of today, the Johnny A Signature is crafted by Gibson Custom with a “thin line” body roughed from a single piece of select Grade-A mahogany, capped with two-piece figured maple top. Unique Johnny A “scimitar” f-holes, elegant multi-ply binding, and luscious Sunset Glow finish in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer set the foundation for an extremely classy look. The quarter-awn mahogany neck has the longer 25 1/2′ scale length and a rounded profile that Johnny A prefers. Unique inlays in a bound, black Richlite fingerboard and custom headstock and gold-plated hardware complete the picture. Two Gibson’s immensely popular 57 Classic hum bucking 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 hard-shell Custom Shop case and Custom Crimson Certificate of Authenticity.
