Maurice Johnson

Maurice Johnson and his CCTS-650 BK

Charlie Christian is widely considered one of the founding fathers of Bebop music. The Charlie Christian "Solo Flight" model was built by Samick in collaboration with D'Leco guitars. It was designed by Maurice Johnson of D'Leco and licensed from the estate of Charlie Christian, whom a portion of the proceeds went to. Maurice is commonly seen playing CC models to this day.
