With his raw and powerful guitar sound along with the catchy punk rock vocals, Billie Joe Armstrong has earned a reputation as one of the premier punk rock front men. The Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Junior Electric Guitar features a mahogany body with a set-in mahogany neck and a rosewood fingerboard (ebony on the white model). The bridge pickup is a stacked double coil H90 pickup that delivers the tone that Billie Joe requires. The Billie Joe Armstrong signature Les Paul includes a deluxe hardshell case.

Special H90 Pickup
Gibson’s H90 stacked double coil pickup is the result of a close collaboration with Billie Joe Armstrong. It offers the snarl and punch of a classic, vintage P90, but with none of the 60-cycle hum that usually plagues traditional singlecoil pickups. This was accomplished by simply taking two singlecoils and stacking them on top of each other, resulting in the hum cancelation effect that occurs in a regular humbucker.
