A little about you, Mr.JOHNSON!
Nashville-based Roots Blues and Americana artist Justin Johnson has been hailed by Guitar World as a “must-see act,” lauded as an “American Master” by John Carter Cash, and a “musical visionary” by Ted Nugent, has had his “funk” praised by Bootsy Collins, and his musical approach described as “timeless” by North Mississippi Allstar frontman Luther Dickinson. He has been recognized as Slidestock International Slide Guitar Champion, and his original music has been licensed to Wieden & Kennedy, Dodge Motor Co, Ken Burns, Florentine Films, and the list keeps growing. Always innovating and following his own sound while taking inspiration from the past, Justin Johnson blurs the lines between the traditional and the cutting edge, taking current day music back to it’s roots and keeping the blues alive.
We contacted Justin to work with him to co-design a signature dream guitar, that would give his preferred range of pickups, tones, and design features, along with a combination of show-stopping aesthetics for the stage, and this sexy, dangerous beast is what we came up with together & what we brought to life. She is now in the hands of Justin Johnson in America, ready to play magical tones and amazing music!
