A hardshell case is included.Gibson '57 Classic HumbuckersThe Ltd. Ed. Johnny A. Custom Outfit is powered by Gibson '57 Classic Humbuckers, which are based on Gibson’s legendary hand-wound “Les Paul Standard” humbuckers from the late '50s. Today, those rare pickups are recognized by collectors by the black “Patent Applied For” sticker on the back, applied at the factory. Today’s Gibson '57 Classic humbuckers are made with the same Alnico II magnets as the originals (plus a reproduction of the “Patent Applied For” sticker) and are wax potted to keep down noise and feedback at high-volume. Gibson '57s also include vintage style enamel-coated wire, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and 2-conductor braided wiring for a complete vintage experience without the vintage price tag. Controls for the Johnny A. are standard Volume and Tone pots for each pickup with Gold "top hat" knobs with metal pointers. Stand out on stage. Order today.
