Dial In Classic Blues and Modern Tones

From Epiphone comes the Joe Bonamassa Les Paul featuring genuine Gibson Burstbucker (tm) pick-ups and built to the exact specifications of the American bluesman himself. Modeled after the classic Les Pauls of the late '50s, the Bonamassa is loaded with enough custom improvements to send your solos to the next level with extreme playability and a tight, snarling tone. The Epiphone Bonamassa Les Paul is outstanding guitar for blues-rockers looking for a higher level Les Paul without the matching price-tag.

Not Your Everyday Epiphone

Since the first run of the Epiphone Bonamassa Les Paul, buyers have been floored by the astounding tone and flawless quality of each instrument (in some cases even preferring it to the Gibson Bonamassa model). The burstbucker (tm) pickups add tremendous flavor and quality distinguishing this guitar from other models in this price range. The '5- styled burstbucker-2 occupies the neck position while the hotter, slightly over-wound burstbucker-3 sits at the bridge. Combined you have a classic bluesy flavor with the requisite bite you need to achieve the same tone that's elevate Joe's playing to an untouched level. Throw in some genuine Grover Tuners, a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge, and the 50's rounded profile neck, and you got yourself a blues-rock machine ready to take your playing to new heights with all the flair and character that's defined Bonamassa's music through the years.

Features:

- Genuine Gibson Burstbucker (tm) pickups for that Bonamassa biting tone
- Quality hardware with genuine Grover Tuners and a LockTone tune-o-matic bridge
- Included straplocks to keep your ax steady admist even the most tremendous solos
- Mahogany neck with traditional 1959 profile

For Bonamassa fans, this guitar is a no-brainer. For those unfamiliar with the blue-rocker's work, the vintage flavor and enhanced components of this Les Paul still make it a fantastic buy. Well known for the extreme care and craft he puts towards his tone, this is a Les Paul worthy of Joe Bonamassa himself.

Epiphone Joe Bonamassa LT ED Les Paul

Epiphone Ltd. Ed. "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/ Bigsby Outfit: With Bigsby B70, Gibson Burstbuckers, and custom Inverness Green finish!

Modern blues legend and GRAMMY nominee Joe Bonamassa returns with his third Epiphone Signature Model, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit. Featuring a one-of-a-kind Inverness Green color finish, Gibson Burstbucker humbucker pickups, and a classic Bigsby B70 vibrato along with a Les Paul-classic "Lifton" style hard case. Joe Bonamassa has been part of the "House of Stathopoulo" family since 2011 and worked closely with Epiphone's luthiers at the Epi headquarters in Nashville to create a new Les Paul Standard that incorporated his favorite features from his collection of priceless vintage Les Pauls from the late 50s, this time with a Bigsby B70 vibrato!

Over the last decade, Joe Bonamassa's original fusion of electric blues and rock has inspired a new generation of fans and musicians. Bonamassa is not only a superb and prolific artist but also a genuine music fan--deeply committed to the story and heritage of the many players who have inspired his sound, from Rolling Fork, Mississippi to London. Bonamassa's extraordinary technique and passionate performances have already inspired two signature Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul Standards, the "Goldtop" and the Les Paul Standard in Pelham Blue. Now, Bonamassa adds a new twist with the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit, the first Epiphone Les Paul signature model with the classic Bigsby B70 vibrato, especially chosen by Joe to match his own prized vintage Les Paul!

"Sustain for Days:" The new "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit was designed in close cooperation with Joe and includes many of his favorite design details drawn from his collection of vintage Les Paul Standards--designed by Mr. Les Paul himself to "sustain for days." The "2015" has a Mahogany body with the same classic "Les Paul" profile used on all Les Pauls since they were first produced at the Gibson/Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

The top has a Carved Maple Cap and is finished in Inverness Green at Joe's request. The traditional Mahogany neck has a rounded D-profile with a "1959" shape modeled after Joe's favorite '59 Les Paul Standard and is deep-set into the body and hand-glued. The neck has a 12" radius with a Rosewood fingerboard with "Trapezoid" inlays, a standard 24.75" scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a standard 1 11/16 nut. The truss rod cover has the now familiar Les Paul "bell-shape" with "Bonamassa" engraved in capital letters and the trademark "Les Paul" signature in gold on the headstock.

Gibson USA Burstbucker Pickups: Joe Bonamassa has counted on Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers for all of his Epiphone signature models as well as his rare custom models. Nothing else comes closer to the sound of late 50s hand-wound "PAF"-style humbuckers than Gibson USA Burstbuckers. Joe's new "2015" Epiphone Les Paul features a Burstbucker-2 in the neck position a slighter hotter-wound Burstbucker-3 in the bridge position. There's no better match-up than a Les Paul with humbuckers and just like the originals, each Gibson USA Burstbucker humbucker has its own individual "voice" enabling players to develop their own person tone and style. The original humbucker was first invented and perfected at the Gibson/Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Burstbuckers feature unpolished magnets and non-potted coils like the first generation of humbuckers. The myriad of variations in the output and tone of original "Patent Applied For" pickups came from inconsistencies in winding the bobbins, a result of the lack of automatic shutoffs on Gibson's winding machines in the late 1950s. Seth Lover, who invented the humbucker, recalled that original "Patent Applied For" pickups were wound "until they were full." When two coils in a pickup have a different number of turns, that variation puts a little "edge" or "bite" on the classic humbucker sound.

Controls for the new Ltd. Ed. Epiphone "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit feature the now-classic set of mismatched Gold "Top Hat" knobs for the bridge and neck pickup controls, just like Joe's favorite '59 Les Paul Standard. Epiphone's patent-applied-for LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and the rock standard Bigsby vibrato along with premium Grover machine heads with a 18:1 tuning ratio, make set-up and intonation easy and rock solid. And of course, the Joe Bonamassa "2015" Les Paul comes with Epiphone standard solid Nickel hardware, an Epiphone non-rotating 1/4" output jack, and Epiphone StrapLocks. And to complete the look of Joe's priceless vintage Les Pauls, Joe's "2015" Epiphone Les Paul comes with a classic "Lifton Styled" Hard Shell Case along with a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Joe Bonamassa.
Customer Reviews

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Banamassa LT ED Les Paul"
Overall: This guitar is amazing. I have several Les Paul's and this Epiphone ranks up there with the best of them in terms of tone and playability. Quality out of the box is good, but some set-up was required. Including minor items like adjusting and fitting the vol and tone control knobs. But overall, I'm very pleased with this guitar.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Joe Bonsmassa Les Paul"
Overall: I'm in love...What a sweet guitar, It played great right of of the box. It has a well balanced feel, and great sound. It also comes in a case so you don't spend any time picking the packing styrofoam from it. Epiphone rocks, I have Gibson lp's and this sounds and plays just as good if not better.
