Based on Joan’s longtime favorite stage guitar, the Epiphone Joan Jett Olympic Special is a lightweight, stage-ready powerhouse with all of the essentials you need to rock, with no frills to get in your way.

Listen as Joan Jett explains the inspiration behind her signature Epiphone guitar:

It features a single PowerHammer PRO humbucker wired to a single CTS volume potentiometer. The single black speed-style volume knob has a rubber grip band for precision control. An on/off toggle switch provides “kill switch” functionality. The adjustable wraparound bridge/tailpiece delivers full intonation adjustability and anchors solidly to the mahogany body for excellent sustain. Die-Cast tuners and a Graph Tech nut anchor down the strings at the other end, and a reproduction of Joan’s signature is located on the rear of the classic Olympic Special headstock. A Custom Premium Gig Bag is included.

I bought this guitar for my wife who is a huge Joan Jett fan. I have been teaching her guitar for a year or so and had originally bought her an Ibanez JemJr that she had fell in love with. She rarely ever picked it up and instead always grabbed my Dean Cadillac. So she decided she would rather get rid of the JemJr and try this. That was the best decision she could've made. This feels like a better made guitar all the way around and on top of that she can't put it down. There were a few small issues like white spots from the paint on the fingerboard and the pickup housing being cracked in 2 spots. However I reached out to gibson and they are sending a replacement for it so no complaints whatsoever. I have many guitars to compare this to and I am very pleased with this guitar. It plays better than most guitars around this price point. And for someone who hasn't been playing real long this is perfect. Single pickup, one Volume knob, and a killswitch. It doesn't get much simpler than that.
