L Series

LJ16BC Discontinued

Billy Corgan chose the handcrafted LJ16 A.R.E. as the foundation for his signature model. However, a few sonic changes were made during the design process at Mr. Corgan's request -- a slight emphasis was put on the upper-mid harmonic frequencies creating a better listening experience for the audience. There was also a bit more detailing in the low-mid range to help round out the balance to complement his playing style. Other personalized Billy touches are brass bridge pins, TUSQ nut and saddle, GOTOH open-gear tuners and a unique "Zero" head stock logo.
