CRAIG'S POV

Straight out of a collection, there's very little playing time on this exquisite Fulerblaster with many deluxe appointments--same condition as when new. This JG is loaded with all the Fullerblaster goodness that one could want. It is simply a guitar that engages all of my musical sensitivities. And my esthetic ones, too. I’ve been playing 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 is Johan’s personal take on a '60s Tele Custom and features a double bound alder body in a remarkably accurate reliced Shoreline Gold nitro finish. The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard edges are warmly rounded, the fret work is impeccable, and the compound radius fingerboard give it a modern playability that fits perfectly with this design.

Every single element has Johan’s masterful touch. It all comes together to create the mojo of a guitar that you feel like you’ve known forever.

From the full C neck carve, to the aged hardware, straight through to the aged TV Jones Supertron neck pickup, it's got all the sound, look, feel, and vibe that you’d expect from one of greatest electric builders on the planet today.

Gustavsson Fullerblasters are genuinely infectious guitars. A truly great design that really sucks me in. The more I play them, the more I WANT to play them. Johan has uncovered some serious magic with his Fullerblaster. He actually might have made my perfect "desert island" guitar.

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.
