The plain top and satin lacquer finish are what makes this guitar more affordable for dedicated players who may not otherwise be able to afford one.  This ES-335 features a maple top, back and rims, which are joined with a solid maple center block and mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. The ’57 Classic humbuckers translate the body’s natural resonance into haunting jazz tones or blinding distorted leads.

1960s slim taper neck profile is very fast and comfortable while bound top and back, vintage tulip tuners, nickel hardware, and mother-of-pearl inlays add up to fantastic visual appeal.

Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Jr. Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-billie-joe-armstrong-signature-les-paul-jr-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-billie-joe-armstrong-signature-les-paul-jr-electric-guitar-review#comments Mon, 27 Sep 2010 11:33:12 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=568 The Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Jr oozes raw punk rock tone. This Les Paul Jr is a modern remake of ‘Floyd’, the vintage Junior Armstrong plays on stage. Initially created as a budget model guitar, the Les Paul Jr has time and again proven it has more than enough muscle to handle modern music. The flat-top, single-cutaway mahogany body and single dog-ear, double-coil H-90 pickup combination is unbeatable for punchy, defined-yet-dirty tone.

The Billie Joe Signature also features a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard (ebony on classic white model) and ’1960 slim-tapered neck profile is comfy and gives you something solid to hold on to. It also has a wraparound compensated bridge, nickel tuners, and volume and tone controls.

Gibson Custom ES-339 Limited Semi Hollow Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-custom-es-339-limited-semi-hollow-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-custom-es-339-limited-semi-hollow-electric-guitar-review#comments Wed, 15 Sep 2010 19:55:01 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=477 The Gibson Custom ES-339 Limited Semi Hollow body guitar is the perfect guitar for those who want a hollowbody guitar, but do not like how large something like the ES-335 feels in their hands.The Gibson Custom ES-339 Limited Semi Hollow body guitar is the perfect guitar for those who want a hollowbody guitar, but do not like how large something like the ES-335 feels in their hands. The ES-339 is built to the standards of the ES-335, but the dimensions are closer to that of the Les Paul and SG. The Gibson ES-339 has a slightly archet top with real F-holes, thinline semi-hollow body, solid maple center block to reduce feedback and enhance sustain, rounded symmetrical cutaways with unparalleled upper-fret access are all here, minus a little of the bulk and weight!

This guitar isn’t directly molded after the ES-335, however. It has its share of enhancements, like Memphis Tone electronics, a more slender neck profile, side mounted output jack ad reduced dimensions / weight.

Epiphone Elitist 1965 Casino Hollowbody Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/epiphone-elitist-1965-casino-hollowbody-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/epiphone-elitist-1965-casino-hollowbody-electric-guitar-review#comments Sun, 12 Sep 2010 11:03:47 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=408 The Epiphone Elitist 1965 Casino hollowbody electric guitar is another stunner in Epiphones line of outstanding axes. This hollowbody is suprisingly lightweight, a huge plus on a large guitar, and the neck is very comfortable. Epiphones ‘Elite’ series of guitars are instruments that are bordering on custom shop quality. Many of the inner workings, like the pickups, circuitry, toggles, and tuners are all American made in a special factory that is devoted to their manufacture where they receive a high degree of hands-on luthier attention.

You’ll find the Elite 1965 Casino true to the original made famous by The Beatles. A finely crafted, great-sounding, and easy-playing instrument that beautifully blurs the line between Epiphone and Gibson.
