Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Signature Les Paul 2001 Lemonburst – Mint 9.75/10.
We have a somewhat rare, especially in the UK (I know, they all say that…but for this one its true!), first year 2001 Gary Moore signature in the stunning Lemon Burst finish. These were made from 2000-2001 and are highly sought after by Les Paul and Gary Moore fans globally. These were actually used by Gary himself and are the very first Les Paul guitars to leave the Gibson factory with Burstbucker PAF pickups (BB1), so are bound to be collectible in years to come.
This particular guitar is as it left the factory, unmodified and has seen very little (if any) use for a 20 year old guitar. The Gary Moore scratchplate and case shroud is included and remains unfitted. The guitar features a beautiful 3D flametop with some great vertical marbling. Very sought after.
The guitar features include: no body binding, an AA flamed maple top finished in lemon burst (inspired by Moore’s Peter Green Les Paul), 1959 profile neck and an unbound rosewood fingerboard. This was the first Gibson standard production model to feature BurstBucker BB1 PAF pickups. The pickups are exposed with a reversed zebra pickup in the neck position.
The guitars were wired to reproduce the out of phase wiring in Moore’s Peter Green Les Paul. They were supplied without a pickguard attached – although there was one included in the case (with a Gary Moore signature on it) which you could attach yourself.
The neck profile is a 59, everyones favourite Gibson neck. Super comfortable and very playable.
