Bill Kelliher “Halcyon” Les Paul
You want to talk heavy? Bill Kelliher’s riffs with metal giants Mastodon could just about crush prehistoric beast that gives the band its name. The Bill Kelliher “Halcyon” Les Paul takes its classic mahogany/maple foundation from this savage-riffing guitarist’s longtime favorite singlecut, and blows it through the bedrock with a pair of eviscerating Lace Dissonant Aggressor pickups, with push-pull coil splitting on their individual volume controls for authentic single-coil sounds. With the tone totally covered, this guitar drives home the looks, too, courtesy of a Gold With Blackburst finish, gold-plated hardware, gold speed knobs, a “Halcyon” hot-stamped truss-rod cover, cream binding, and traditional trapezoid inlays. The guitar comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.
