Johnny A. Signature Guitar
Gibson Custom Shop

The new Johnny A. Signature model from the Custom Shop combines several innovative new design aspects with loads of vintage Gibson appointments to create what will surely become a modern classic.

The completely hollow body--with a solid, AAA maple top and tonally carved back and sides--features a contoured outer surface but a flat inner back, resulting in a guitar that resonates more like a flattop than an archtop. An exclusive body style and size, a custom neck profile, and custom pearl fingerboard inlays combine with traditional Gibson features like multi-ply binding, gold hardware, and an ebony fretboard to create an instrument that captures the magic of Gibson's past while eagerly anticipating the future.

Check with your local authorized Gibson Dealer for more information.
