Gibson announces Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Model Les Paul Junior

Gibson have just announced the introduction of a brand new Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Model Les Paul Junior. It’s based on Gibson’s historic 50’s era Les Paul Junior, built to “rock out on.” This modern take on a historic model features a single ’57 Classic Humbucking pickup, classic solid-slab mahogany body, and mahogany slim taper neck with rosewood board.

“I just think the Les Paul Junior is by far the coolest guitar on the planet.”

He says that the reason behind the simplicity of the design was his desire for kids to be able to “put their own identity to it”. Whether that be through painting it themselves, covering it with stickers or carving into it, because that’s what he always did with his guitars.
