Gibson has announced the latest in its run of signature electric guitars for 2019, the Joan Jett Signature ES-339.
Following two years of R&D with Jett, the Runaway’s 339 features a thermally engineered chambered maple centre block and Adirondack spruce bracing - the first time this has been featured in a Gibson ES design.
The company’s Burstbucker 2 and 3 humbuckers provide the tones, while the control assembly is handwired using Orange Drop capacitors.
AAA figured maple veneers adorn the guitar’s top, and are finished in Wine Red - what, no Cherrybomb Red?
Just 150 Joan Jett ES-339s will be produced, with the first 50 hand-signed by Jett herself - non-signed models will be $2,999, while signed go for $3,999. See Gibson for more info.
This latest model follows REO Speedwagon man Dave Amato’s Les Paul Axcess Standard, which was announced just last week.
