rosewood neck

This Fullerblaster features a stunning curly maple top with arm contour and some lovely mineral graining, with the kind of figure that you would find on one of Johan’s Bluesmasters. It’s coupled with a ridiculously seductive Amazon rosewood neck and fingerboard that shoot this piece right into the stratosphere of JG's creations. Every element has Johan’s masterful touch everywhere.

Every time we receive a set of Johan Gustavsson’s Fullerblasters, we're always astounded by how unique each one feels -- the sense of individuality they convey while still staying consistent with the philosophy of Johan’s design. Each Fullerblaster has a unique pov. Each has its own story. Each one is its own thing, crafted with love for the instrument. As the builds progress, we compare notes with Johan about what each guitar could be, as far as finish and wood selections are concerned, then Johan sets his inimitable guitar making skills into action. Each finished guitar is always, without fail, nothing short of amazing.

CRAIG'S POV

This is the one.

This guitar is the one that I will probably judge all Fullerblasters against. 
It is simply a guitar that engages all of my musical sensitivities. And my esthetic ones, too. 

I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, and it takes something truly amazing to get me this inspired.

This is a very custom version of one of my all time favorite guitars. It sports some of coolest features that Johan offers.

It features a stunning curly maple top with arm contour and some lovely mineral graining, with the kind of figure that you would find on one of Johan’s Bluesmasters. It’s coupled with a ridiculously seductive Amazon rosewood neck and fingerboard that shoot this piece right into the stratosphere of JG's creations.

Every element has Johan’s masterful touch everywhere.

From the neck carve, to the aged hardware straight through to the customized rod magnets in the P90s, it's got all the sound, look, feel, and vibe that you’d expect from one of greatest electric builders on the planet today.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.

ABOUT JOHAN GUSTAVSSON GUITARS
It's probably fair to say that there have been few builders who’ve made as deep an impact on the contemporary guitar world as quickly as Johan Gustavsson. He’s taken the ’59 burst to a level that you likely haven’t experienced from any other builder. Johan's first exposure to a fine guitar was via his teacher, Robert Larsson, who had (as Johan puts it) “an old beaten up 1960 Les Paul Standard.” It was then he realized just what a great guitar could be. The experience continued when Johan got a part time job at one of the few places importing vintage guitars to Sweden from the U.S. (fifties Gibson Les Paul Goldtops, Juniors, pre-CBS Strats, Teles and Jazzmasters, etc). The exposure to that level of guitar and to that many great instruments had a great influence on his work as a guitar maker. Again – the quality of those guitars showed the possibilities inherent in the instrument. Johan has always been more attracted to the Gibson style of making guitars (with carved maple tops and glued in necks), and this is reflected in his most famous, and current model, the Bluesmaster Custom 59. A Gustavsson guitar is a Gustavsson guitar. His shop consists of Johan and an able assistant who was trained at the London Guild Hall University (and is a wonderful guitarist). That’s both good and bad news. The good news is that Johan’s genius is evident in every guitar he creates. The bad news is that since he makes them all himself, there are never many available. It’s a rare treat to play one. Simply superb.
