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.

Gibson ES-175 Reissue Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-es-175-reissue-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/gibson-es-175-reissue-electric-guitar-review#comments Tue, 07 Sep 2010 10:20:03 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=380 The Gibson ES-175 Electric Guitar, originally debuting in 1949, is the definition of a classic guitar. The body is large, giving it a great tone, yet it is very comfortable. And the stylish pointed cutaway adds a nice visual touch. When it was released, it quickly became the most popular jazz guitar in the world.

This reissue electric guitar features a transparent finish on a laminated maple body. The bindings on the top back and fingerboard, along with the trapeze tailpiece and parallelogram inlays provide a touch of style and class that is unrivaled. Dual ’57 Classic humbucking pickups crank out all the silky smooth jazz tone you could dream of. The Gibson ES-175 is well worth the hefty price tag that goes along with it.
