The Gibson Custom Shop wowed visitors to the NAMM show in January when they unveiled the new Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess. This stunning guitar was the result of countless hours of collaboration between the Rush guitar legend and the Custom Shop’s unrivalled team of luthiers, ultimately creating the perfect guitar for Lifeson’s demanding stage needs. Lifeson recently sat down with Musician’s Friend to discuss his 40-year relationship with Gibson and the new guitar that bears his name.
