Recreates Adam's #1 Guitar - His 1979 Silverburst Les Paul Custom

Adam Jones is one of rock's most talented and sonically innovative guitarists, from multi-platinum selling and multiple Grammy Award® winning band Tool. This limited-edition Gibson Custom Shop model recreates Adam's #1 guitar - his prized original Silverburst 1979 Gibson Les Paul™ Custom. Finished in Antique Silverburst VOS, the graphic on the rear of the headstock was designed by Adam Jones, and a replica of his headstock mirror is included in the custom Adam Jones hardshell case. These guitars were hand-made by the expert luthiers and craftspeople of the Gibson Custom Shop as part of a very special run.
