Bluesman Vintage is a player oriented pro shop and manufacturing facility located in Spring Hill, just south of Nashville, TN. Owner John Scott manufactures his own line of guitars and basses that feature classic styling with traditional features, along with modern refinements that make them very appealing to both the pro or casual player.
This is a relatively rare ’61 Nomad LP Junior style from Bluesman Vintage Nashville, personally built by John Scott. It has a TV Jones humbucking pickup instead of the standard, and it sounds fantastic. It will give you that tight punchy cut of a great P90, as well as some serious grunt when dialed up, all without a hint of noise.

This guitar is not that old, but it feels broken in and screams out to be played. It is super light, balanced, and very comfortable to play with a fast, low action and tone to burn. And it looks the part, with a heavy relic treatment applied at the factory.
This Nomad DC is a professional quality Junior style guitar that has been well set up and is ready to play. It is a stripped down, but still very versatile rock machine. And to validate that, a nice touch is that the control knobs go to 11…. yes !! Seriously, the TV Jones pickup is a beauty, with a unique voice that deserves to be heard.
Comes in a Gibson USA hard case in as good condition.
