The Epiphone Limited Edition Johnny A. Signature Outfit Guitar in Sunset Glow delivers the awesome guitarist, singer, and bandleader's exceptional archtop to the world.

Throw into the package a custom Johnny A. hard case, and a signed certificate of authenticity, and you have one hell of a package!
Beautiful custom body design
Adhering to Johnny A.'s unique double-cutaway hollowbody archtop design, this model is both lightweight and easy for the hands to navigate. The warmth and energy created by the hollowbody shape is outstanding, and the inclusion of mahogany as the tonewood for the back and sides creates a powerful midrange tonal foundation. The 3-ply laminated maple top resonates freely to project the timbre confidently, whilst a pair of non-script "f-holes" enhance the percussive presence of the guitar. The flame maple veneer enhances the striking visual aesthetic, which is matched by a sophisticated sunset glow paintwork, encircled by 5-ply binding and matching pickguard.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is an awesome mahogany neck, which provides a reassuringly sturdy feel in the hand. Shaped to the Johnny A's custom rounded profile, the neck feels substantial in the hand without becoming cumbersome. Paired with the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that are adorned with pearloid trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. Thanks to the 12-inch fingerboard radius, executing lighting fast licks and smooth string bends is a piece of cake.
Gibson USA '57 Classics
A pair of Gibson USA '57 Classic humbuckers are fitted in the neck and bridge positions, which resurrect the hallowed Les Paul Standard humbuckers of the late '50s. Utilising the same Alnico II magnets to recreate the same smooth tones, each pickup is wax potted to minimise noise and feedback at high volume levels. Everything about the Gibson 57s are designed to closely match the vintage pickups from the enamel-coated wire and nickel-plated pole pieces to the 2-conductor braided wiring, nickels slugs and maple spacers. Even classic gold "top hat" knobs with metal pointers seal the classic charm. Whatever style of music you play, this setup is as versatile as it is audibly beautiful.
The headstock is home to Epiphone's "Deluxe" machine heads with 18:1 gear ratio for maximum hold during performances. The body is home to a rock solid ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge, which is partnered with a Bigsby B70 vibrato tailpiece. The bridge and tailpiece work together to guarantee stable intonation and flawless levels of sustain, whilst delivering peerless vibrato control with airtight precision.
Epiphone have included a custom Johnny A. hard case to protect your pride wherever you are, as well as a certificate of authenticity to complete this brilliant package.
