Over the years many have claimed to deliver guitars authentically modeled after Johnny’s weapon of choice; but look no further – they’ve arrived! These top-of-the-line guitars are painstakingly perfected to maximize performance; and, in the true spirit of The Ramones, they’re affordably priced without compromising quality in an effort to make them accessible to all who will truly appreciate them.

Remaining authentic to their vintage roots, the official Johnny Ramone guitars are brought to you by Hallmark Guitars USA, a company founded in 1965 by one of the core-designers of Johnny’s famed 6-string originally purchased in NYC back in 1974.

Many guitar enthusiasts are unaware that Johnny Ramone used a rare, early 1965 prototype model of a Ventures II, a guitar utilizing a core design by Hallmark founder Joe Hall. The early prototype was quickly pulled by the manufacturer and replaced with a substantially different model. It’s been estimated that only 25 pieces of the original Ventures II prototypes were assembled and sold before production ceased. This was the model specifically used by Johnny Ramone to change the face of music. It’s been gone ever since. Now…it’s back.

Setting them apart from those who market nothing more than a brand name under an acquired franchise, Hallmark Guitars reap the benefit of direct involvement from key players who literally worked hand-on the production, and created the design of the original guitar developed in the 1960’s. Acclaimed custom guitar builder/designer, and current Hallmark President, Bob Shade spearheads the company optimizing the potential of Johnny’s model for a present day criterion without diluting its classic sounds. Hallmark has even developed new improvements never employed in the old design. While seamless aesthetically, these modifications perfect audible performance and resole many issues inherent in the original model (and those that followed in its footsteps), while still maintaining its unique, vintage tone that’s unmistakably the guitar voice of the legendary Johnny Ramone.

SHEENA

In 1974 Johnny Ramone and his bandmates started a revolutionary band that changed the sound of rock music forever.

Now a Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee as guitarist for the world famous RAMONES, Johnny Ramone has inspired generations of guitarists with his straightforward no nonsense approach, taking high energy guitar playing to a new level. Alongside of Johnny through the years was his favorite guitar that helped get his legendary “stripped down to action” sound.

For the very first time, you can now own the very same model that created the famous punk sound in 1974!!! The only other way would be to spend thousands on one of the only 25 vintage models known to exist, but what punk would want to do that? The new limited edition Johnny Ramone Signature Model will give you that same chainsaw sound that all fans have been searching for — Hallmark has gone to the furthest extreme to get it just right!

Joe Hall the founder of Hallmark Guitars in 1965 was one of the core designers of Johnny’s guitar and designed its special highly wound single coil pickups which Hallmark is still continuing to use to this day!
