A beautiful homage to a modern legend! But with some upgrades! Read on...
This gold metallic beast is inspired by an original mid-'50s Goldtop. The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Limited Edition Les Paul is the Epiphone version of the Gibson Custom Shop model made for ol' Joe. These guitars were made in a limited batch of 1,000.
Crafted from mahogany with a maple top, this top notch instrument is outfitted with a rounded "D" profile neck (.898"-1.018") that feels incredible in your hands and a 12" rosewood board that feels perfect under the fingers. It has been given an aftermarket bone nut with a width that measures in at 1.68".
The pickups...oh my gosh the pickups!! Seymour Duncan Custom Shop Signature Bonamassa humbuckers: and they sound heavenly. Vintage 50's tone for days. The Joe Bonamassa Signature dual-humbucker set accurately replicates the P.A.F. pickups in Joe's beloved 1959 sunburst Les Paul. It don't get no closer to Joe than that (N: 7.61k, B: 8.01k). Lastly but not leastly it's loaded up with 500k pots.
The amazing techs here at EMS have given this golden god a full setup and leveled the frets. It is ready for stage or studio right outta the case. It ships with the original case and it will ship the next day.
