Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard
The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard is a limited edition, only 1000 have been made by Epiphone of this beautiful guitar, with a Pelham Blue finish, built having the 1959 Les Paul in mind, and has been design with the collaboration of Joe Bonamassa himself. The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard has som vintage specs, like the neck profile (as in a ’59 Les Paul), Gibson Burstbuckers pickups, and some more modern specs like the Locktone bridge.
The body is made of mahogany, with a maple top, and a glued-in mahogany neck. The neck pickup is a Burstbucker 2 and the bridge pickup is a Burstbucker 3. The back of the Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard Pelham Blue is black as well as the side of the guitar.
