Gibson custom shop Johnny A spruce top in vintage Sunburst. This was a limited edition in 2017 and the entire Johnny A line has been discontinued.

Made in the Historic Custom Shop, not memphis.

This is the only one I've seen with a teardrop burst instead of an edge burst. Much more classic look in my opinion.

Hollowbody with a long scale neck equates to a big sound in a more compact design.

Excellent shape with light playwear, very faint scuff mark on the back of the neck (can't feel when playing), tiny indent on the back edge of headstock, and tiny indent between control knobs. Small spot of dark discoloration on the top not sure if it's the wood or finish. All seen in the pics.

The vintage burst looks less red in person as seen in the case pics, hard to capture but the finish is beautiful in person with a nice smooth transition.

Original case and COA included.
