To celebrate her achievements, Gibson USA introduces the Joan Jett Blackheart, a guitar made in the image of her own simple yet powerful go-to Gibson, but with upgraded appointments befitting a deluxe artist’s model. With the Melody Maker’s light and incredibly resonant solid-mahogany body, a quarter-sawn solid-mahogany neck with 17-degree headstock pitch, a Tune-o-matic (ABR-1) bridge with stopbar tailpice and a Corian nut to keep it all ringing true, and a single zebra-coil BurstBucker 3 pickup in the bridge position for a hot yet vintage response, the Joan Jett Blackheart is equipped for your most aggressive sonic assault, while still capable of singing sweetly when desired.
Single Volume and Tone controls provide all the sound crafting you need, while a sideways mounted “kill switch” toggle lets you cut out when necessary, while avoiding any accidental dead air when you’re thrashing hard. To dress up this lean, mean rockin’ machine, the guitar’s neck wears an ebony fingerboard with red dot inlays in the traditional positions of the single dots, with two white hearts at the 12th fret, and a satin ebony black nitrocellulose finish to let you know it means business. All guitars come with a plush-lined Joan Jett hardshell case, and a Gibson Owner’s Manual with full care instructions. Check out a Joan Jett Blackheart at your authorized Gibson dealer, and get ready to rock.
