We're big fans of Joe B, a super nice guy, and an incredible musician and businessman, too. This signature guitar from Epiphone is a wonderful tribute to the modern blues master.
Set up in-house by our esteemed Guitar Tech to play just as Joe would want it. Comes with custom hardshell case with Epiphone and Joe Bonamassa graphics plus a certificate of authenticity (COA). What a great package!
Some guitars are more special than others, even when that guitar is owned by a world-famous guitarist and guitar collector like Joe Bonamassa. In 1996, he purchased a red 1962 Gibson ES-335 and used it on his first solo album, A New Day Yesterday. In 2001, he regrettably sold the guitar to help fund his move from New York to LA. As the 20th anniversary of Joe's first record approached, a strange twist of fate and an unexpected phone call resulted in Joe being reunited with his old friend, the red ES-335 that propelled him through his first solo effort and launched him into a new life on the West Coast.
Feeling fortunate to get his old guitar back, Joe promised that this important instrument would stay with him for the rest of his days. The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa 1962 ES-335 is a tribute to a legendary guitarist and one of his cherished instruments. It features a one-piece mahogany neck with an Indian laurel fretboard and a comfortable Rounded C profile, Gibson BurstBucker 2 and 3 pickups wired to CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors, a Switchcraft pickup selector toggle switch and output jack, and a Maestro Vibrola.
