Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG

No sooner has Gary Moore appeared on his umpteenth Guitarist cover (it´ll be out soon...!), that Gibson do the business with a version of the BFG Les Paul. Here´s part of the story from

This guitar takes the raw, unrefined power of Gibson´s classic BFG and matches it with the look of Moore´s personal and legendary Les Paul Standards from the late 1950s, resulting in a beautifully radical Les Paul that embodies Moore´s iconic status amongst the world´s finest guitarists.

The Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG is a stripped-down version of the iconic Les Paul, featuring Gibson´s high-powered and uncovered Zebra Burstbucker 3 humbucker in the bridge, and a classic, screaming single-coil P-90 in the neck, all controlled by two volumes and one tone knob. The traditional toggle switch has been rewired to act as a kill switch, and a smaller toggle at the volume knobs controls pickup selection.
