Epiphone Presents the Johnny A. Custom Outfit

The limited-edition model features a flame maple, Sunset Glow finish, Gibson 57 Classics, and a Bigsby B70 vibrato.

Nashville, TN (May 5, 2017) -- Epiphone presents the new Premier Artist Signature Series and the Ltd. Ed. Johnny A. Custom Outfit based on Johnny A.’s original design. Featuring a beautiful Flame Maple top in Sunset Glow finish, Gibson 57 Classics, Bigsby B70 vibrato, Ebony fretboard, and hard case.

For over two decades, Johnny A. has cultivated a reputation as one of rock n’ roll’s supreme guitarists and bandleaders. And his signature archtop featuring a sharp double cutaway along with its unique sound hole design, has made Johnny A. one of the most easily recognized players working today. Now, Epiphone presents Johnny A.’s first custom signature archtop for the “House of Stathopoulo” in a beautiful Sunset Glow gloss finish.

“Epiphone did an amazing job with this guitar,” said Johnny A. “I know it’s not an easy guitar to build and it’s fantastic. I’m so honored to have an Epiphone version of the Johnny A.”

The Johnny A. archtop design has long been considered one of the most beautiful signature models ever made. For his first Epiphone signature guitar, Johnny A. chose the same classic thin-line semi-hollow Mahogany body design with a beautiful Flame Maple top finished in Sunset Glow with modern non-script “f-holes”, 5-layer white and black (pure white/black) on the top, plus an Ebony fretboard with Johnny’s unique pearloid inlay. Plus, the Ltd. Ed. Johnny A. Custom Outfit is powered by Gibson 57 Classic Humbuckers. The Ltd. Ed. Johnny A. Custom Outfit comes with an Epiphone hard case.
