Jason Becker’s personal Kiesel JB24 guitar just sold on Reverb for an astounding $25,000. This was no ordinary JB24, though – it was signed by Eddie Van Halen, Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Joe Bonamassa, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert, Uli Jon Roth, Richie Kotzen, Greg Howe, John 5, Dave Amato and other guitar luminaries, and came with additional swag including a photo collage of many of the artists signing the instrument, artists’ guitar picks, and a certificate of authenticity.
Proceeds of the sale went directly to the Jason Becker Special Needs Trust.
You can order your own JB24 directly from Kiesel Guitars with the exact same specifications as Jason’s – well, minus the autographs! With features like a tung-oiled swamp ash body, maple neck, original Floyd Rose tremolo, Jason’s unique “Numbers” inlays, and Seymour Duncan Jason Becker Signature Perpetual Burn humbucker in the bridge, a Duncan SH-2n neck position with a Duncan STK-S7 center single-coil, you’ll love to play the JB24 as much as you’ll love to look at it. Best of all, a portion of the proceeds from every Jason Becker guitar ordered will benefit the Jason Becker Special Needs Trust.
