OVERVIEW

An elegant exterior, but beefed up inside with powerful Lace pickups and coil-splitting.

You want to talk heavy? Bill Kelliher' riffs with metal giants Mastodon could just about crush the prehistoric beast that gives the band its name. The Bill Kelliher œHalcyon Les Paul takes its classic mahogany/maple foundation from this savage-riffing guitarist' longtime favorite singlecut, and blows it through the bedrock with a pair of eviscerating Lace Dissonant Aggressor pickups, with push-pull coil-splitting on their individual volume controls for authentic single-coil sounds.

With the tone totally covered, this guitar drives home the looks, too, courtesy of a gold with blackburst finish, gold-plated hardware, gold speed knobs, a œHalcyon hot-stamped truss-rod cover, cream binding, and traditional trapezoid inlays. The guitar comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.

      Comments about Gibson Bill Kelliher "Halcyon" Les Paul Electric Guitar:

      If you are looking for a guitar to fit almost any genre this is the one. This is a must for me, because I play in Metal, Country, and Christian worship bands. I got this guitar in last night and I was blown away. Bill Kelliher is not one of those guys who just puts his name a on a guitar for the heck of it. He really puts a lot of thought into anything with his name on it and he did an excellent job with this one. This is one of the best products that Gibson has put out in a while. The pictures don't even do justice to its' beauty in person. The pickups are not very hot which I love. That is was makes it more versatile. Let the amp take care of how heavy or clean you want it. I did my research and this guitar met my every expectation. You will not find better for the price I promise.

          Comments about Gibson Bill Kelliher "Halcyon" Les Paul Electric Guitar:

          This is a great looking and sounding guitar. The gold top with the black burst is just beautiful and than its complimented by all the gold hardware. It plays like a les paul should with a very comfortable and fast neck. The tone of the Lace pickups is so good I bought another pair to put in my les paul traditional. The pick ups have a nice warm bass tone that punches through the mix and doesn't get lost. I don't have to brighten my tone to the point of being to sharp just to stand out in the mix. I would recomend this guitar to any body it can handle all styles. Love it.

            Comments about Gibson Bill Kelliher "Halcyon" Les Paul Electric Guitar:

            To begin this is my first Les Paul although I have played many. The guitar I received was excellently made with no fret issues and it was setup well. This is the guitar that should have been the Les Paul Standard model as it has no electronic tuning assist. The Lace pickups are excellent but are nothing like Burstbuckers or 59's. The neck on this guitar is excellent if you like the fatter width necks. The gold hardware and gold burst finish on the guitar I received are amazing and if you can get the 15 - 17% off the value becomes much more reasonable. The case is the standard brown case with the pink plush inside. I am more than happy with the purchase and would recommend this guitar to anyone who like rock or metal and wants a Les Paul.
