This is the Justin Johnson signature SS1 in Black Cherry stain with a chrome Kahler USA locking vibrato and chrome hardware. It features the full complement of Justin's choice pickups with 8 pickups in 6 cartridges giving you a total of 22 unique pickup combinations. This includes six Kent Armstrong single coil pickups (three strat-style, one tele-style neck, one tele-style bridge and a p-90 soapbar), as well as a PAF-style humbucker and a Gretsch Filter'tron humbucker. Mix and match these by snapping them into neck or bridge positions for an amazing amount of versatility. Changing pickups takes only seconds and you don't even need to unplug from your amp!
