Billie Joe Armstrong announces new Les Paul Junior signature Gibson guitar
Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong has teamed up with Gibson for a new version of his signature Les Paul Junior guitar.
The instrument is described as an “exceptional guitar to rock out on, whether you play rock or punk” with “everything you need for great tone with no frills to get in your way.”
“The single cut ’50s Les Paul Jr has been the root of my guitar tone for over 20 years,” Armstrong says. “Ever since I bought ‘Floyd,’ my 1956 Sunburst Jr, in the early 2000s I have been addicted. It’s a simple, raw, and powerful guitar that has a sound that just can’t be beat! Plug it straight into any tube amp, crank it and it will roar!”
Armstrong’s Les Paul Junior comes in silver mist and vintage ebony gloss finishes, and costs $2,199. For more info, visit Gibson.com.
