Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard


Gibson has offered a few different Gary Moore Les Paul models over the years, and all of them have been beautiful. But I just can’t tear my eyes away from the latest: the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard. That Lemon Burst finish just kills me. This guitar takes many cues from the legendary ’59 Burst Moore was most associated with (the one that was previously owned by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green). There are a few twists though, which set this guitar apart from previous Gibson Gary Moore Les Pauls. For instance, the neck position Burstbucker Pro is reversed in its mounting but it isn’t magnet-flipped to give you the Peter Green out-of-phase middle setting (Gibson explains it as being in recognition the Green mod, rather than actually emulating it); there’s no binding or pick guard; and the unbound fretboard is Granadillo. So this shouldn’t be seen as a lower-cost version of the beautiful Greeny Les Paul that was released a few years ago: it’s its own instrument – and a really beautiful one.
