Another late ‘60s blues hero whose fluid technique, clean sound and use of the Gibson Les Paul still inspires the likes of Slash, Eric Johnson and fellow unsung legend Joe Bonamassa. If proof were needed of Bloomfield’s musical pedigree, look no further than his stinging lead work on Bob Dylan’s seminal Highway 61 Revisited.
The Gibson Custom Michael Bloomfield 1959 Les Paul Standard is a replica of his iconic '59 Standard, which (according to Bloomfield’s tribute site) was originally a trade in for his 1954 Les Paul Goldtop (and a $100) with guitar technician Dan Erlewine.
