Johnny Depp Guitar - Front

Artist Series "Johnny Depp"

Johnny Depp on stage

The body of the Artist Series "Johnny Depp" guitar is made from American Alder combined with an Ash top. On top of that, there is an aluminum top plate in which we etched a selection of his personal tattoos. The tattoos were photographed from Johnny's body and redrawn by an artist to have them then applied onto the aluminum top. The image that you can see on the back of the guitar is actually the tattoo Johnny has on his back. You can find further references to his tattoos all over the guitar.

The pickup is P90 style, but custom wound to Johnny's needs. A small switch close to the volume pot (which is the only control on the guitar apart from the switch) allows you to do a coil tap to switch between full fat P90 sound and a more vintage Telly sound… which works really well by the way – honestly. The coil that you can take out of the signal actually has 1963 windings, which is Johnny’s year of birth – which is an absolutely great little detail.

The Johnny Depp Signature will be limited to 52 pieces but just 40 of them will be sold. The guitar will come with a deluxe case and some very special goodies.
