Joan Jett's signature Gibson Melody Maker with a worn white finish. Inspired by the Melody Maker Jett acquired in 1977, the guitar is constructed of a slab mahogany double-cutaway body with a slim-tapered neck and ebony fingerboard.

Featuring a powerful Gibson Burstbucker 3 zebra humbucker with slightly overwound asymmetrical coils and unpolished Alnico II magnets, the instrument is outfitted with mini-Grover tuners, “witch hat” knobs, a “kill” switch, and a retro black vinyl pickguard.

Manufactured in 2007, the headstock is engraved with the serial number, “031870400.” The truss rod cover boasts Jett’s facsimile signature, and both the front and the reverse of the guitar are emblazoned with a Joan Jett and The Blackhearts logo vinyl stickers.

The owner’s manual, pre-pack checklist, and an additional Blackhearts vinyl sticker are included. The factory relic-ed guitar exhibits some wear to the tuning pegs and surface marring to the pick guard. It is accompanied by a black Gibson hard shell case measuring 15.5”x42.5” and 4.75” deep with surface scuffing and wear.
