As the premier punk rocker of his generation, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong doesn’t compromise on style, tone, or attitude. The new 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-175’s 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 Memphis P-90 pickups—long Billie Joe’s favorites.
