For 25 years, John and his
staff at JBG Guitars have made some of the most remarkable guitars and basses
in rock history for clients such as Steve Miller, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page,
Keith Richards, Joe Perry, Timothy Schmitt, Ron Wood, Mick Jagger Albert King, &
Lou Reed. When legendary instrument designer Ned Steinberger was looking

this resulted in the NS Basses & Guitars
John is best known for the work he has done for Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.
Billy and John have collaborated to create well over 100 guitars through the
years. Their friendship has evolved to the point where they constantly challenge
one another to create some of the wildest guitars the world has seen, as well as
some of the finest tones ever heard. Ed Roman & John enjoy a long
relationship building guitars together.
Now John has translated these years
of experience into a new guitar design, "The Classic". This remarkable
guitar features a carved top and back with a hollow interior. Unlike the pressed
woods used in so many other guitars with an arched top and back, this guitar is
truly “carved” from solid woods.
The pickups were custom designed
& wound by
Seymour Duncan himself for this guitar. Details like the ebony pick guard,
ebony tuners, and ebony knobs, as well as a flamed maple binding, are features
normally found only on the handmade arch top guitars costing huge sums of money.
