Epiphone Olympic Special Joan Jett – Signature Guitar Review – We Love Rock n Roll!

Another great original reissue from Epiphone this week in the fish-like form of the 1965- 1970 Olympic Special now reinvented as the new Joan Jet signature. So is it still special?… time to put on the leather jacket, crank up the AC30 and find out!!

WARNING: I am not an expert, but some things I do know and some things I don’t know but think I know and sometimes I say things that are not entirely correct. Once I have said things it’s too late to correct them so please check any ‘so called facts’ with an adult, google, wikipedia, or someone else that knows.
