Overview

That's why Billie Joe rocks a vintage Junior and why you'll love the Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior electric guitar. Billie Joe's signature model is a modern re-creation of the vintage Juniors he plays on stage. While the Junior may have started life as a budget model, it has proven it has the muscle to deliver the powerful sounds needed for 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 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.

This guitar is amazing. It has that nice, punchy, punk-rock sound, but is much better than expected. I tried it out for the first time and immediately bought one. I love it that much. I expected the price to be way higher, but it seems as though you can get rock perfection for a cheap price these days! The nice, smooth body makes it excellent for playing. Also, the weight of the guitar is very light, making it easy to perform in front of a crowd. It looks great. Highly reccommended. Trust me, even if you're not a Billie Joe Armstrong fanatic (I don't understand why you WOULDN'T be one), this guitar seriously delivers everything you could ask for.

Ive had this guitar for almost 2 years now and I love the sound but I can't stand the intonation. No matter how hard I try to work the non compensated bridge me are any tech who has touched it can't get a good intonation. The E is in tune, then A goes out. A is intonated then G isnt.

Awesome Guitar

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This guitar is one of the best that Gibson has ever made. I have been playing the guitar for about 10 years, and I love this one. I always have and always will be a huge Green Day fan, and I love Billie Joe's playing style. This is a great guitar if you want to sound just like Billie.

ooooh!

By drummin4fun517

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

I didn't purchase the guitar (due to lack of money, haha) but I was able to plug in and play the Billie Joe Armstrong signature at my local guitar center. I have to say, it is everything that everyone says it is. It's loud, it's punk, but it still has amazing sound quality. I would definately recommend this if you're going for loud, but great sound. I know i would've brought it home that day if i was able to!

Great guitar for anyody

By beau1045

from Oceanside, California

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This is probably one of the best guitars I have ever played. Billie Joe is my idol and this guitar gets the Green Day sound that everyone wants! Even though this guitar only has one pickup, that is what Billie wanted. This is made according to his specifications. I've had this one about a year now and I love it as much as the day I got it. To really get that Green Day sound, play it on a Line 6 or Mesa Boogie. I'll admit that this guitar is a little pricey but it is worth every penny if you ask me. This guitar can not only give you the perfect Green Day sound but it's not just for Green Day. You can play just about anything on this junior. This is worth every penny!

pickup

By gibson guy

from dallas, texas

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

for all you people who have thought that this guitar didnt make any improvements from the origional version, your wrong. first of all look at the pickup. you might be thinking not humbucker, doesnt deserve my attention, well if you actually read the product features than you might know that this is not just a simple p-90 pickup. it is a double coil p-90, so it acts like a humbucker by canceling out hum, but still holding the same sound and charactoristics as the p-90.

A Nice Junior

By Barney Rubble

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

Despite all the anti and pro Green Day nonsense this guitar is a nice 50's style LP junior. And despite all the grumbling about "only one pickup" a good Les Paul Junior is one of the most versatile guitars ever produced. A quality slab of mahogany coupled with a one piece neck and a P-90 pickup is a very dynamic combination. Rock and Roll, Country, Jazz you name it it all sounds great on a nice LPJ in the right hands. The Billy Joe model differs from the standard LPJ (and YES it does differ) in that the it has the correct neck pocket (look at the pictures fer christ's sakes) it has nickel hardware, which will age nicely just like the 50's models, and it comes with a special design pickup, which sounds decent enough but I'll probably toss in a vintage P-90 at some point. The BJA also has a very tasty lacquer finish which is especially nice on the back of the vintage sunburst model. I tend to agree that the price of this instrument is on the high side. I was lucky enough to get mine new but heavily discounted with no case for considerably less than they go for used. For what it retails for, Gibson should have gone the extra yard and gave it the long neck tenon and the vintage reissue P-90. Other than than It's a nice Les Paul junior and I'm looking forward to breaking it in.

Greatness

By bl 19

from Oceanside, California

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This is ten times better than a regular Junior. This is what you need. The neck is perfect for anyone to move around on and the pickup sounds amazing. The Green Day sound is in this guitar. You just need to play it to get it out. I would recommend this guitar to anyone and it is definitely worth every single penny on the price tag. It is an absolute must have!

Great Guitar

By Brian moore

from california

Comments about Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar:

This is a very nice guitar. Much lighter to play than a standard les paul. The P-90 pickup cleans up nicely, or gets dirty for great distortion, Custom shop quality guitar.
