    Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 Hollowbody Electric Guitar
    June 01, 2014

    Slammin' tone and uncompromising attitude just like Billie Joe himself.

    As the premiere punk rocker of his generation, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong doesn't compromise on style, tone or attitude. The Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 from Gibson Memphis rolls all three into a raging ball of badass, in a guitar that stems from surprising depths of tradition while packing the no-frills, sucker-punch power that punk demands.

    This beautifully light and comfortable to play thinline semi-hollow sports the ES-175s classic lines, but thanks to a chambered mahogany core that enhances sustain and fights unwanted feedback, it rings like a bell when you hit it. And when you want it to wail, just crank the two fat and gnarly P-90 pickups long Billie Joe's favorites.

    Grab the neck crafted to Billie Joe's preferred proportions, dial in the simplified controls to taste, and you're primed to deliver thick, meaty gobs of house-rockin' mayhem while looking utterly righteous in a sweet Black Cherry Burst nitrocellulose finish with traditional trapezoid inlays on a rosewood fretboard.

    Includes Gibson Memphis Hard Case.
