Serial Number Video What does this mean?
When Joe Walsh first joined the James Gang in 1968, he turned heads with a unique tone and playing style that would both become hallmarks of his long and accomplished career. Over three decades of critical and commercial success as a solo artist, member of the Eagles and continually evolving artist, Joe is a rare and admirable member of the Rock n Roll elite. Through these many years, Joe has held a very special relationship with Gibson, one that started with an original 1960 Les Paul.
As a member of the 2013 class of Historic instruments, the Joe Walsh 1960 Les Paul also features the 2013 updated Gibson Custom Historic Les Paul specs.
2013 Historic spec change overview:
• 1-piece rosewood boards.
• Aniline dye on back and sides on burst finishes. This was original, and discontinued many years ago.
• Hide glue on neck to body joint. Better tonally than aliphatic and other modern adhesives, becomes almost invisible in the joint. Also allows for easier removal of the neck.
• Kluson “Deluxe” tuners – the most accurate reproductions yet!
• Slightly darker cream binding.
