Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess
Designed with Dave Amato for Endless Nights of Great Tone
$4,699
The new Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess from Gibson Custom represents a collaboration with the artist based on very specific needs: exceptional tone in a very playable instrument that's light weight for long nights on stage. Among features personally selected by Dave are the neck's '58 LP neck profile, Axcess-contour neck heel for complete fret access, a single '57 Classic Plus Humbucker in the bridge position with push/pull pot for coil splitting, and a Floyd Rose Tailpiece. It's also the first Artist guitar from Gibson Custom to feature a solid, White Ebony fretboard.
