Gibson Joe Bonamassa Bonabyrd

Gibson is proud to announce the release of the Joe Bonamassa Bonabyrd signature guitar! The guitar has the body of a 1957 Les Paul, but with a Firebird neck. The Gibson Custom Shop made one of these for Joe some years ago, and ever since fans have been asking for the guitar to be put in to production.

The Joe Bonamassa Bonabyrd, which has been designed in close collaboration with Joe himself, comes in an Antique Pelham Blue finish. Unlike Joe’s custom Bonabyrd prototype, this one will have two humbuckers instead of just one. We’ve opted to go with two Custom Bucker pickups with Alnico III magnets, for those classic PAF tones.

If you want to get your hands on one of these beauties you need to act fast, as only 100 will be made. All guitars will be signed by Joe, and delivered in a Gibson Custom Les Paul case. Here’s a video of Joe playing his original Bonabyrd prototype during a gig at the Beacon Theatre:
