Joan Jett is perhaps the ultimate in Rock Chic (and was aptly featured at the top of our recent article ‘Girls Need Guitars! – A Tribute To Great Female Guitarists’) and she has now been given the ultimate honour from Gibson. Her own signature guitar!
The Gibson Joan Jett Blackheart is a Melody Maker with the perfect combination of femininity and hard rocking attitude. The Blackheart features red dot inlays with hearts at the 12th fret, a Gibson Burstbucker Zebra pickup, kill-switch and light-weight mahogany body.
“I got my Melody Maker in 1977… It was light and it sounded great. It was the guitar I had in the Runaways and then played on all my hits, like ‘I Love Rock N’ Roll’ and ‘Bad Reputation’ and ‘Do You Wanna Touch Me.’ It’s my baby.” – Joan Jett
With such a massively successful career Joan Jett has helped to make the Gibson Melody Maker one of the most iconic guitars in rock & roll history, and now with the Gibson Blackheart she has truly been immortalised.
