Gibson's Custom Shop artisans spared no detail in making this superb solidbody electric guitar the spittin' image of Tom's iconic axe.

This guitar rocks hard

With its comfortable neck profile, P-90 neck pickup, and aggressive bridge humbucker, this guitar rocks hard. Take a listen to Boston's 1976 debut album. This axe is all over it. Tom Scholz - who holds a master's degree in Engineering from MIT - knew what he wanted in a solidbody electric guitar. He started with a 1968 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop Deluxe with two P-90 "soapbar" pickups. Then he rolled up his sleeves and went to work on it, installing what was, at the time, probably the hottest pickup on the planet - the DiMarzio SuperDistortion - at the bridge, leaving the P-90 in the neck position for tasty rhythm tones.

Accurate down to the last detail

In sync with the zeitgeist of the 1970s, Tom stripped the gold finish off his '68 Goldtop, exposing the natural maple. This gives the Tom Scholz Les Paul Aged Collector's Choice #10 a refreshingly clean look that's enhanced by the cream colored pickups and gold tophat volume and tone knobs. The luthiers at Gibson Custom painstakingly studied Tom's original LP and faithfully reproduced every scratch, ding, curve, and output measure, for a stunningly accurate re-creation that has been verified by Tom himself.
