Classic PAF sound with a pair of Gibson humbuckers

If you've ever seen Joe play, then you've seen Skinnerburst. And if you've heard Skinnerburst, then you know it has killer tone. Joe and Gibson Custom loaded the Gibson Custom Joe Bonamassa '59 Les Paul Standard with a Burstbucker #3 in the neck and a Custombucker at the bridge. Both of these pickups use period-correct wire and a precise number of turns to create the tone we all know and love. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of Skinnerburst - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul! We know tone at Sweetwater, and the Gibson Custom Joe Bonamassa '59 Les Paul Standard delivers it by the truck load!
