Johnny A.’s style passes the test of time, and it’s not by accident. With influences from the likes of the Beatles, Everly Brothers, Wes Montgomery, Chet Atkins and Jeff Beck, it’s easy to see why Johnny A.’s music is considered timeless, and his guitar playing recognized as one of the most innovative and expressive of our time.
Gibson Custom first introduced the Johnny A. Signature Model in 2003, and it’s become one of the company’s most successful and popular models. Developed in close collaboration with Johnny A., the Johnny A. Signature Model combines several innovative design aspects with many of Gibson’s traditional appointments to deliver one of the world’s most unique guitars.
