Well this one sure is a looker...
Between 2000-2002 Gibson made Gary Moore Signature Les Pauls that are now highly coveted by Les Paul and Gary Moore fans round the globe. These Les Pauls also were the first Gibson factory production guitar with Burstbuckers (BB1). This particular model has an amazing flame top and an incredible ’59 profile neck. Overall this one is in excellent condition with very minimal play wear.
From his scorching playing with Skid Row and Thin Lizzy to his incendiary solo work, Gary Moore produced some of the most powerful guitar performances known to stage and studio from the mid ’70s right up until his untimely death in 2011. Throughout his career, Moore virtually defined high-octane blues-rock, coining a signature tone that thousands have sought to emulate. Across three decades of playing, his weapon of choice remained the mighty Les Paul, one of which was the legendary ’59 Burst originally owned by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green.
Now Gibson USA honors this certified guitar legend with the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard, a first-class Les Paul decked out to this demanding artist’s preferred specifications. Many details are reminiscent of the famed “Peter Green Les Paul,” formerly played by Gary Moore. From its highly flamed maple top with Lemonburst finish, to its traditional Les Paul Model headstock with signature truss-rod cover, the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard offers uncompromising looks. Plug in and fire up its BurstBucker humbucking pickups and you'll see, it rips it up with a tone fit to carry the name, Gary Moore.

We will ship it with a fresh setup, safe and secure, lightning fast in it's vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with Gary Moore signature.
