Overview

The Gibson John Lennon J-160E Peace Acoustic-Electric Guitar is replica of Lennon's 1962 J-160E, which he used extensively in films and recordings. The reissue features an antique natural finish, laminated spruce top, ladder-top bracing, a P-90 pickup, authentic wood body binding, and a signature truss rod cover. It perfectly re-creates Lennon's Gibson axe as it appeared during 1969's Bed-In after stripping off the psychedelic paint job he commissioned in 1967. It's historically accurate right down to the strap based on the one John used. The original Gibson guitar is now displayed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and this re-creation is offered as a limited, numbered edition of 750, each with a Certificate of Authenticity from Gibson.

If you want the Beatle sound....

By Keith Partridge

Comments about Gibson John Lennon J-160E Peace Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I was surprised at what a different sound this guitar actually made by the time I received it. I could not find one in a store so bought it online knowing I could return it within 30 days if I didn't like it. I was interested in the Peace guitar because it was reported as a accurate duplication of Lennon's ax. If it's good enough for John and George, it's good enough for me. I tried round wound tradition acoustic strings and did get that bell like chime but wasn't 100% happy. It was recommended to me to try Pyramid Flatwounds and that did the trick.

Disappointed with sound

By Wozza

from Kailua, HA

Comments about Gibson John Lennon J-160E Peace Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

First of all this guitar looks the part but unfortunately for the price it is the worst sounding acoustic in my collection of 4. I have tried many different strings and setups on this guitar and nothing works. Side by side with my other Gibson acoustic which was half the price, the J160E comes in a distant last. Also they give you a strap with no way of mounting the neck end of the strap, no screw in button or leather lace. Overall, sound wise this guitar is a big disappointment
