The ‘Pauls Have Landed

We love Custom Gibson Les Pauls. No, we LOVE Custom Gibson Les Pauls, so imagine our unbound glee when not one but two new ‘Inspired By´ models landed within days of each other; the Joe Bonamassa Aged Les Paul Gold Top and Gibson Steve Jones Les Paul Custom.

Neither are especially cheap but both positively drip vibe and, regardless of your own personal take on the whole relicing hot potato, both have been artificially aged to perfection. Joe´s guitar is based on his own gold top model, while the Jones model takes after the aged 1974 white Custom on which he helped redefine British music.

Our Bradders, Guitarist's own Page Seven Feller, weighed down by Pauls...

We´ll be featuring both in future issues - in fact a a full review of the Bonamassa will appear in our next magazine - but, for now, we´re just happy to have them and to hold them, wishing they were ours...

More, if you can stand it, from Gibson
