A '70s classic spec'd out for the ultimate rock star, with chambered maple body, five-ply neck, BurstBucker pickups, and LP Custom-style 'Tuxedo Features'.
Although we think of all the great Gibson electrics as being made in the "golden age of the ™50s and early ™60s, a few genuine classics slipped in during the years between the end of that era and the rebirth of Gibson standards a little over two decades ago. The L-5S is one such guitar: Gibson' top-tier solidbody at the time of its introduction in 1973, it has long been the favorite of Rolling Stones and Faces guitarist Ron Wood”an artist who knows a œrock star guitar when he finds one.
Updating the format to their exacting standards of , Gibson Custom introduces the Ron Wood L-5S, a finely crafted artist' guitar that sounds every bit as upmarket as it looks. Distinctive features include a chambered maple body with carved top, the five-ply maple/walnut/maple L-5S neck, and iconic Les Paul Custom-style œTuxedo Features such as multi-ply top and back binding, pearl block inlays, a multi-ply Custom headstock with pearl split-diamond inlay, and gold hardware throughout. Add Ronnie' choice of BurstBucker 1 and 2 humbuckers and you're ready to rock.
Based on Ron Wood's favorite '70s vintage Gibson, the redesigned L5S captures both the vibe of the original's under-the-radar vintage cool and the craftsmanship and quality of today's Gibson Custom Shop. 250 of these limited edition guitars are offered in an Ebony Gloss finish.
