This is your opportunity to be one of the first to own a unique Les Paul model signed by Les Paul himself.

The BFG Limited Edition consists of the first 52 guitars produced in each color with a handwritten serial number showing the guitar's place in the run of 52. The father of the guitar that bears his name has signed the headstock.

A decidedly nontraditional Les Paul for rockers who want a Les Paul with attitude and don't care about good looks. It has the sound and playability you'd expect from a Les Paul, while its raw look stands Les Paul styling on its head: unsanded top, no binding, no pickup rings, no truss rod cover, no toggle switch rings, no fretboard position indicators (dots on the side only), with wooden knobs that have no numbers.

This rough and tough guitar has sonics to match: steamy hot tones from the novel pickup combination of a single coil P-90 in the neck and a BurstBucker 3 in the bridge - like having a Les Paul Special and a Standard in one guitar.

Mini toggle pickup selection switch located near two volume and one master tone controls. Kill switch located where rhythm/lead switch used to be.

"Distressed" stop bar, Tune-o-matic bridge, and Grovers and "shopworn" case complete the raw look of this very different looking Les Paul.

I love this guitar

By Mockingbirdkids

I've been playing guitar for about 10 years now and I've owned a lot of different guitars but this is my favorite. First the guitar is very natural. It has beautiful wooden tone knobs, an unfinished quilt maple top, no fret etchings. This is a natural wood lovers guitar for sure. I play alternative music and the zebra / P 90 pickup selection is perfect for what I do. The P90 is very smooth and the zebra is very harsh and perfect for the raw unfinished alternative rock it was originally intended for. I have no opinion on the kill switch and I don't use it I would probably actually prefer an extra tone knob with the selector int he usual spot but with the p90 there's almost no need. The feel of the guitar is very nice, It's well balanced unlike a lot of lacquered 2 meter thick Les Pauls that some of the old boys use. Ya it's chambered, no I don't hear any difference between it and a non chambered guitar. No I'm not crazy, Yes I do use a TSL100 and orange PPC412. But anyways it is a great guitar enjoy.


A decidedly untraditional Les Paul..

I've always like Les Pauls, but was discouraged by the weight. Along comes the BFG, and everything changes. The chamber lightens the guitar by quite a bit, while the feel of this guitar is beyond words for my simple mind. It's a beautiful instrument!

This guitar absolutely SCREAMS MUSE! I'm not a very big Les Paul guy, but for a les paul, this rules! It has a killswitch, for really cool tremolo pedal effects, it only has 1 tone and 2 volume, which i like. The fretboard is pretty quick to! Great low action! P-90 pickup in the neck, and a humbucker in the bridge! Its the same pickup configuration as that of Matt Bellamy but i think he uses a Motherbucker in the bridge position. This was made to play Muse!


Awesome BFG

By Scorned Guitarist

The BFG has to be one of my favorite Les Pauls of all time, and I've owned tons of lesters. A light Chambered body, broken in feel, awesome tone on both pups (that sound good with any style of music). What else could you want?I think the BFG will be collectible for many reasons:1) It's THE mose controversial Les Paul of all time2) Chambered Body, and Humbucker/p-90 combo (exclusive for this model only)3) trim package exclusive to only the BFG model (clear covers, wood knobs, scalloped top, and the Kill switch)4) one of the first 52 BFGs5) Even though it's not advertised, It's got Les Paul's actual autograph on the headstock (not the decal that all other pauls have, but the autograph from THE man himself!)What are you waiting for? Buy this guitar!

Simply aweseome, I've heard it before and played with people who own it. Good buy.


intrument lacking quality

By Klee

from midwest

This guitar plays great except for the intonation at the top of the neck. It is way off. The guitar has been to two authorized techs and the problem has not been fixed. The quality of this Gibson guitar is not what I expected. I will be sending this one back to Gibson.
