A Serious Axe for Serious Guitarists

The Gibson Memphis Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 is the happy result of a design collaboration between the Green Day front man and Gibson's ace Custom Shop luthiers. First off, this guitar is a looker, with a delectable, vintage-flavored black cherry burst nitrocellulose finish. With its fast neck and rosewood fingerboard, this instrument is a pleasure to play. Billie is a fan of P-90 pickups, and he's spec'd a pair of Custom Shop Memphis P-90s for his signature axe, so you can expect a versatile range of tone from this guitar, from mellow to extremely rude. The Gibson Memphis Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137. You know you want it.

P-90 single-coils deliver the goods

The Gibson Memphis Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 is fitted with two Memphis P-90 pickups. Gibson's first successful single-coil pickup, the P-90 can be heard on countless classic recordings. With its biting treble and high output, the P-90 cleans up nicely when you roll back your guitar's volume pot. And when you hit your amp hard, the P-90 really wails. It's an amazingly versatile pickup (more so, arguably, than most humbuckers).

Gibson Custom's commitment to quality

Gibson's Custom Shop took extra care with every detail of the Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137. Every Gibson Memphis guitar receives an ultra-precise Plek Pro setup, which optimizes the fretboard and nut for incredibly accurate intonation and a "just right" feel. And little touches like the quartersawn mahogany neck and the 17-degree headstock angle not only add to the amazing tone and feel, they remain true to the ES Series as well as Gibson's history.
