An exact and detailed replica of the actual Marley machine.

Poet . . . prophet . . . musician . . . Bob Marley was many things to many people, and the instrument he played was just as unique. Painstaking research and detailing was done using Bob's original Les Paul Special to create this model, and the consensus is that this is one of the most spectacular additions to the Gibson Custom Shop's Signature Series of guitars. Aged-cherry finish on a solid mahogany body, mahogany neck, and genuine P-90 single-coil pickups generate that inimitable Marley tone. Bound fingerboard and overbound headstock plus aged hardware including aluminum pickguard, football-shaped switch plate, brass nut, lightweight aluminum tailpiece, and Mini-Schaller tuners add up to a magical likeness of the original. Rosewood fretboard, 24-3/4" scale length, and 1-11/16" nut width.
Includes hardshell case, certificate, Custom Care Kit, and display case.

Gibson's Custom Shop produces some of the finest electric guitars on earth. Using the best materials money can buy, a staff of skilled luthiers reproduce some of the greatest Gibsons of the past and create stunning new instruments for players and collectors who demand the best.

Bob Marley was great, and so is this instrument.

Bob Marley, in my opinion, was the most inspirational and influential artist of all time, and this guitar is timeless, like his music. It is probably the best guitar I have ever played!

I have owned and played many artist models but Gibson hit the nail on the head with this one. Bob Marley transcends music and pop culture and is a symbol of freedom and struggle. This guitar represents all that is Bob Marley. To some it is a religious artifact.


Classic to be had....

i just don't think it gets better than this one. When i went out and searched for a guitar, this one had everything i wanted -Gibson did it up on this one. I think it had a lot to do with the respect for the artist here.

You can get an Eric Clapton Strat for less, there is absolutly no differance in the quality! If anything, the Clapton strat is better. Think about it.
