Billy F. Gibbons doesn’t pull any stylistic or tonal punches, so you’d expect his take on the seminal Les Paul Goldtop to be a knockout—and it is.
The first ground-up revision of Gibson’s stunning original solidbody electric in over 60 years is a masterpiece of style. In addition to its luscious goldtop finish, it features a unique pinstripe design created by Billy himself, which is hand-recreated one at a time by respected hotrod-pinstripe artist Rick Harris and a Gibson artist trained personally by Rick. Sonically and visually, the guitar blows the doors off the venue with a neck profile measured precisely from the Rev’s own Les Paul, ultra-light construction, custom electronics, and a pair of Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups.
150 Billy F. Gibbons Goldtops will be carefully hand-aged, with 50 of them played and hand-signed by Billy himself; each of these will have the added kitsch of a Texas-shaped “buckle rash” wear pattern adorning its back. A further 150 VOS models round out the Limited Run of 300 guitars.
Body and Top
This stealth tone machine is astoundingly comfortable and resonant, with a chambered body crafted from a single piece of mahogany and a classic maple top.
Heavenly Sounding Pickups
Billy’s choice of pickups are his signature Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups.
A custom pinstripe design created by Billy himself and reproduced by legendary hotrod pinstriping artist Rick Harris fires up a hand-aged goldtop finish.
Billy’s choice of two volume controls and master tone—with no selector switch—lets you dial in tonal nuance on the fly.
Authentic Playing Feel
An authentic ’50s neck profile has been reproduced from precise measurement of Billy’s very own goldtop.
Billy F. Gibbons Extras
In addition to a Certificate of Authenticity, as a quirky custom touch 150 hand-aged guitars will have a Texas-shaped “buckle rash” wear pattern on the back, and their COAs will be engraved and leather-bound.
