During the "bar days" of Twisted Sister's career, Jay Jay French played his primary guitar—a 1978 Les Paul Standard with a Tobacco Burst finish. As Twisted Sister gained recognition for its distinctive black and pink color scheme branding, Jay Jay made a bold decision to paint his #1 Les Paul pink. Entrusting the task to renowned New York luthier Steve Carr, the guitar underwent a transformation, earning the name "the pinkburst."

The guitar's unveiling took place on a night when Twisted Sister performed at the Stonybrook Madhatter club. In an unexpected move, Jay Jay, upon first sight of the guitar, punched its face with a giant ring on his hand, creating a noticeable gash near the volume knobs. This unconventional act was his way of preemptively adding character and perhaps protecting the instrument from any future damage Dee Snider might inflict.

Over the past 30 years, Jay Jay's "pinkburst" has been recreated and released as a special run through Epiphone. Moreover, Jay Jay successfully enlisted the support of Gibson and other renowned guitar manufacturers for the "pinkburst project"—a fundraiser aimed at generating funds and awareness for Uveitis, an eye disease affecting Jay Jay's daughter, Samantha. Guitars featuring the unique "pinkburst" paint scheme were crafted and sold for this cause.

We're delighted to share that Jay Jay still owns the original Pinkburst Les Paul. This tee meticulously captures the detail and grandeur of this renowned instrument. Secure your Jay Jay French Pinkburst tee today—approved by the man himself!
