Rock legend Joan Jett has received her own signature Gibson guitar.
The Joan Jett Signature ES-339 is a hollow-body electric model featuring a thermally-engineered maple center-block and thermally-engineered Adirondack Spruce bracing, a radical first for Gibson ES guitars, with a wine red finish.
“I have witnessed first-hand the love and personal handcrafting that goes into each of these guitars,” explains Jett. “I’m so very proud my signature 339 is one of the last designed and produced in Memphis and amongst the first from Gibson Nashville.”
Only 150 of the guitars will be made available worldwide, with the first 50 instruments hand-signed by the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer herself.
In a promo video for the guitar, Joan reveals that the signature model was created for her as a gift.
Jett and her band, The Blackhearts, are set to kick off their summer tour with a July 4 headlining show in Minden, Nevada, and join Heart’s Love Alive Tour on July 26 in Darien Center, New York.
