About JOHNNY A. "Just Me...And My Guitars" A Celebration of the British Songbook of the 60's

Johnny again takes an adventurous musical left turn with his "Just Me...And My Guitars" performances to present his distinct, instrumental guitar approach for the very first time in a completely "solo" intimate atmosphere...combining his keen arrangement instincts and guitar skills with his adept understanding and use of effects for a high--wire, one man tour de force, performance in real time without a net!

“Johnny A. is one of the finest guitarist’s I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to, and I always learn something when we get together. He is a consummate musician on a world class level. I’ll put him toe to toe with anyone!” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee - Elliot Easton, The Cars

“Johnny A. has always had such a musical approach to the way he plays the guitar. He arranges his parts sort of like a symphony orchestrator, covering counterpoints and filling out harmonic structures. The tone in his fingers is always comfortable and friendly and a delight to feel. He is a thoroughly accomplished and powerfully effective guitarist”.
3 time Grammy Award winning Artist - Steve Vai

“Johnny A. is a light in a sea of guitar players. His unique and soulful full approach and his ‘ one man band’ chops are peerless. Melody - tone taste and a trick bag of surprises and a killer choice of material makes him a must see!” 5 time Grammy Award winning Artist - Steve Lukather, Toto

Now the new Johnny A. brings the same blend of classic appointments and original design forward with a host of great new features, in a superbly versatile new semi-acoustic electric guitar that you’ll want to call your own.
