A lavish tribute to a distinctive blues-rock virtuoso.

The Inspired By Joe Bonamassa Glossy Les Paul Goldtop from the Gibson Custom Shop features a stunning gold-finish carved maple top with a 2-piece light mahogany back. The finish is accented by single-ply cream binding in addition to black pickup rings, pickup selector ring and black pickguard. The vintage ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and Grover kidney tuners are given an aged nickel hardware coating. The 1-piece mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard features a rounded '59 neck profile for guitarists who prefer a chunkier neck, but still enjoy fast, smooth playing action. The BurstBucker 2 and 3 humbuckers have unbalanced pickup windings for the historically-accurate "Patent Applied For" sound with a little extra airy tone. The 'Bucker Type 3 is slighty overwound for more output. CTS pots and bumblebee capacitors ensure the vintage vibe. Deluxe appointments include a Bonamassa truss rod cover; Dunlop strap locks; amber top hat knobs for neck pickup volume and tone; and gold top hat knobs for bridge pickup volume and tone.

A unique fusion of old and new ideas
Bonamassa played his first guitar at the age of four. By seven, he had stepped up to a full-scale model and had mastered many of Stevie Ray Vaughan's signature licks. At 10 he was playing regularly around the state of New York, garnering attention of blues legend B.B. King. Two years later, he was opening up for King, and eventually stars such as Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Stephen Stills, Joe Cocker, Gregg Allman, and George Thorogood. Bonamassa has lived up to his potential, continuing to develop his own style as one of contemporary music's most profoundly gifted guitar players.

I have saved up for this guitar for a year and finally bought it. It is amazing. I am a huge fan of Joe Bonamassa so I knew that this guitar was perfect for me. This guitar "says" what I want it to, and it sounds how I am supposed to. The action is amazing, the performance is outstanding, the looks of this guitar are the best that I have ever seen. I can never put this guitar down. The only bad thing is the price, but I thought it was totally worth it. If you like the Les Pauls, and you have the money, then buy this guitar. I love this thing, and I think you will too.
