The guitar features the unique asymmetrical Olympic Special body shape, which harkens back to the guitar Jett is most associated with: the Gibson Melody Maker. Also a nod to the Melody Maker is the headstock, with the flat sides rather than the more traditional ‘winged’ Gibson look.
The guitar features a mahogany body and neck, with a 12-inch radius Indian laurel fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. Electronics are minimalist: there’s a single PowerHammer PRO humbucker, wired to a single volume pot. There’s also a toggle switch which is an on/off killswitch for the pickup.
The bridge is a wraparound hardtail. Other hardware includes die-cast tuners and a GraphTech nut.
The guitar lists for an affordable $549. Included in that is a custom Joan Jett gig-bag, as well as a set of Joan Jett-approved stickers included as case candy.
