As the premier punk rocker of his generation, Green Day's Billy Joe Armstrong doesn't compromise on style, tone or attitude. The new Billy Joe Armstrong ES-137 from Gibson Memphis rolls all three into a raging ball of badass, in a guitar that stems from surprising depths of tradition - while packing thee no-frills, sucker-punch power that punk demands.
Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 Features
- Maple top and Sides with three ply poplar core
- Limited Run
- Memphis P-90's Pickups
- Rosewood Fingerboard
- Comes with Gibson Memphis Hardshell case
This beautifully light and comfortable to play thin-line semi-hollow sports the ES-175's classic lines, but thanks to a chambered mahogany core that enhances sustain and fights unwanted feedback, it rings like a bell when you hit it. And when you want it to wail, just crank the two fat and gnarly P-90 pickups-long Billy Joe's favorites.
Grab the neck crafted to Billy Joe's preferred proportions, dial in the simplified controls to taste, and you're primed to deliver thick, meaty gobs of house-rockin' mayhem - while looking utterly righteous in a sweet Black Cherry Burst nitrocellulose finish with traditional trapezoid inlays on a rosewood fingerboard. Satisfy your inner punk today.
