NEW Johnny A Spruce Top Ltd

The Johnny A. Spruce Top series from Gibson blends the snappy and responsive personality of a large, long-scale archtop guitar into a small form with great balance and feel. Its rich, lively tone comes from a solid mahogany body that’s been carved to create a semi-hollow chamber underneath a solid, carved spruce top. Impressive throwback aesthetics harken back to the rare spruce top doubleneck guitars made by Gibson in the late 1950s.
Scale length: 25.5”
Neck pickup: Custom Bucker (Alnico III)  
Bridge pickup: Custom Bucker (Alnico III)

Epiphone just released a Johnny A version. I have one on order but they are not available for shipping yet. Can't wait. The Epiphone version is $1,000. I can't afford the $4,000-6000 Gibson version but I can afford the Epiphone. The Epi has 57 Classic pups.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

I just decided to check with the on line site I have the Epiphone Johnny A per-ordered on to see if they had any updates on when they would be available to ship. I was told that they will not be available for at least another month and while they were originally hoping to receive about 150 of the guitars for sale, they have been  cut back by Epiphone to 100 and I am not one of the early 100 that per-ordered. I am on the "alternate" list should anyone cancel. That's not good. Apparently the initial run on these are totally sold out everywhere I have looked so far.

The other Gibby Johnny A models (and indeed the Epis, though I'm not a huge fan of flametops) all have nicer-looking finishes imo.

The natural and Tobacco burst are both alright but a bit bright, the Clownburst is just heinous

It does say they're long scale archtops.

If I can get anything resembling Johnny A's tone out of it, I want one.

The Gibson Johnny A Signature Semi-hollow Bigsby is fantastic but expensive.
