A Killer Copy of Joe's Own Axe!The limited-edition Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard solidbody electric guitar gives you the soulful sound of this died-in-the-wool blues rocker's favorite axe. Born for blues rock and a valuable addition to any collector's trophy room, the Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard is a real find. What's more, it's as playable as it is collectable, thanks to a weight-relief body, Gibson's amazing 1960 asymmetrical neck carve, and a pair of extra spicy signature Seymour Duncan humbuckers. Hurry though, Gibson's only making 400 Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard Limited-edition guitars.
Gibson Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard Limited-edition Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
A Les Paul Standard with some not-so-standard features you'll enjoy
You could hardly ask for a more quintessential Gibson guitar than the Les Paul Standard, but this limited-edition Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard comes packed with cool features that are far from common. While the weight-relieved body is nothing new, the equally comfortable 1960 asymmetrical neck carve is bound to turn some heads. At the same time, Gibson spared no expense in the hardware department, outfitting the Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard with a TonePros locking chrome bridge and a set of locking Grover tuning machines. A smattering of to-die-for case candy completes the image, and we haven't even gotten to these super-cool humbuckers yet!
Custom Seymour Duncan humbuckers deliver Joe's hot rod blues tone
Wound on the same Leesona winding machine responsible for the humbuckers found on '50s and '60s Gibson guitars, the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop certainly went the extra mile to outfit the Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard with an authentic-sounding set of vintage-style pickups. In fact, Seymour Duncan's top pickup makers worked tirelessly with Joe Bonamassa himself to create a pair of pickups that sounded just like the PAFs in his 1959 Les Paul. So, when you plug your Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard into your favorite tube amp, you'll get the same tone this blues-rock genius swears by.

Music Background: Hobbyist, Played for church and local gospel group
Right out of box/case the guitar was a breeze to play. The action was/is perfect.
If anybody has concerns regarding the chambered body affecting the tone...fugghedaboutit. Mines is 2 ozs shy of 10 lbs and she sounds great. My 2010 R8 is unchambered and she's not this heavy (TRUST ME...I AINT COMPLAININ).
Fit and Finish is SUPERB.
Yeah she's expensive but well worth it. I am in no way, shape, or form disappointed and neither will be any of you if YOU decide to bite the bullet and get this guitar.

While it's a 9lb guitar, it is still comfortable to play. The pickups are resposive and sound great clean or dirty.
The tuning machines have held it's tuning perfectly out of the box.
This guitar feels solid (as a guitart of this cost should) and looks amazing. The pictures on hear only tell half the story. The gold is brighter in person and catches the light nicely.
I am extremely satisfied ith my purchase and with the service from Sweetwater. I was made to feel a valued customer, and have ahd follow up calls to see how everything is going since the purchase was made.
the handfull of candy was a nice touch as well!
Just waiting to get the extra items now (CDs and shades).
If you are a fan of Joe Bonamassa, this guitar is a collectors piece that is worth owning, as you will treasure both the memorabelia aspect of it, and the fact that you will have an increadibly playable guitar as well! close [-]
