Musikmesse 2010: Joan Jett "Blackheart" Melody Maker guitar launched

Musikmesse 2010: Joan Jett
Great deals on musical instruments

Seventies rock icon Joan Jett has been honoured with her own signature Gibson Melody Maker guitar - the Blackheart will be available to see at Musik Messe 2010.

Gibson Guitar, the world?s premier musical instrument manufacturer and leader in music technology, announced the launch of the Joan Jett "Blackheart" Melody Maker.

In anticipation of the forthcoming film release The Runaways and her recent release of the Joan Jett and The Blackhearts Greatest Hits album, Gibson have released the Blackheart.

The latest from Gibson USA embodies the hard-rockin? style of Joan Jett herself with distinct features and attention to detail.

The "Blackheart" Melody Maker will be available through select retailers beginning March 19th.

"I needed a black guitar. This guitar has the same body and the neck runs smooth as silk," said Joan Jett.

"I wanted some flash of color, so the fret inlays are bright red, and the 12th fret is marked by mother of pearl inlay hearts lying end to end."

"I am using it onstage now, and it sounds ferocious. But of course, she can play gentle as well."

"Just like the earlier white Joan Jett Gibson model, it is a great guitar for anybody."

"The legendary Jett is now the subject of a major motion picture, the highly anticipated film The Runaways, starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning"

Gibson USA?s newest model will give fans the chance to try out a few of Jett?s moves on their own with the "Blackheart" model.

Jett got her own original Melody Maker back in 1977 and she has since made it one of the most iconic instruments in rock and roll.
