John Lennon's Gibson J-160 "jumbo" guitar is one of the most iconic acoustic/electric guitars in the world. Now you can own a this fantastic re-issue, which stays true to the original in the minutest detail.
One of John's favorites, the guitar was featured in the film "Help!" including the "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" Abbey Road studio scene, the film's Bahamas-set performance of "Another Girl" and in a memorable rendition of George Harrison's "I Need You," shot on England's Salisbury Plain with the Fab Four guarded by British Army tanks.
Patterned after John Lennon's favorite Gibson J-160E, the signature model EJ-160E features an advanced Jumbo, sloped-shoulder body shape, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a solid mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard and bridge. The fretboard is adorned with "Trapezoid" inlays.
A mini humbucking pickup is seated discreetly between the end of the guitar's fretboard and the sound hole, while volume and tone controls are located on the guitar's lower bout.
