Righteous, Red, and Rockin’ Introducing the Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul
Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul
Through a career that spans stints with Ronnie Montrose, Van Halen, and his own prominent solo work, Sammy Hagar has been the force behind a total of 60 million record sales and countless righteous riffs, and when the Red Rocker rocks, he chooses to rock Gibson. Now, in celebration of Hagar’s mammoth new band Chickenfoot, and its self-titled debut album, Gibson USA introduces the Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul, a guitar with legendary appointments and a hot new look designed by the artist himself, all primed to stoke a new era in rock. A super-group comprised of Joe Satriani on lead guitar, Michael Anthony of Van Halen on bass, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on drums, and Hagar on guitar and vocals, Red Rocker is taking the rock world by storm, and the Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul is the perfect centerpiece for the conquest.
In classic Les Paul style, the guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s most popular PAF-style “zebra coil” humbucking pickups—a ’57 Classic in the neck and a hotter BurstBucker 3 in the bridge—along with the legendary pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece, and the traditional Les Paul neck and body configurations that have made this instrument unparalleled in tone and playability for more than 50 years. To kick the look up into overdrive, the Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul wears a highly figured, bookmatched two-piece Grade AA maple top with luscious Cabernet finish on a weight-relieved mahogany body, and a white Hagar-certified “Red Rocker??? logo on the headstock face, with Red Rocker “R” on the truss-rod cover. Add it all up, and it’s one of the sultriest blends of classic tonal appointments and radical new styling that Gibson has ever produced—in short, a guitar that will definitely get you noticed. Each Sammy Hagar Red Rocker Les Paul comes with a plush-lined Gibson hardshell case.
