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.
