Gibson Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Skinnerburst 1959 Les Paul Aged and Signed

Item: GBLPR9JBASSKBNH1

Joe Bonamassa is among the most revered guitarists of our time, and the astounding 1959 model that he affectionately calls "Principal Skinner" is the most beloved guitar in his extensive collection. Now, following a long-coming collaboration between Joe and Gibson Custom, we are delighted to present "Skinnerburst," a detail-perfect recreation of what is possibly the hardest working 1959 Les Paul in the world today. Through unrestricted access to the original and Joe’s generous cooperation, Gibson Custom has scanned, studied and measured every spec, curve and parameter of this guitar to bring you an instrument that reproduces this prized ‘burst in every possible way, exactly as it looks, feels, and sounds today.??From its delectably faded Dirty Lemon finish, to its custom-wound humbucking pickups, to its precise top carve and neck profile, the Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" 1959 Les Paul gets you as close as is humanly possible to a priceless artist’s guitar.

Historically accurate binding colors, aged cellulose trapezoid inlays, hot-hide glue neck construction, and period-correct hardware all complement a breathtaking rendition of Joe’s constant stage and studio companion. Only 50 will be treated to Gibson Custom’s aging process by Tom Murphy and personally signed and played by Joe Bonamassa.
