Gibson Custom is excited to announce the sales launch of the Joe Bonamassa "Skinnerburst" Les Paul. Also known as "Principal Skinner", this is a detailed replica of Joe's favorite 'burst and his go-to guitar for both live and recording work. "Skinnerburst" is being offered as an Artist model with 50 aged versions hand-signed by Joe, along with 100 aged and 150 VOS.

Literally years in the making, "Skinnerburst" represents a highly anticipated release. Joe is a very vocal aficionado of vintage Les Pauls and has been touting the benefits of this exceptional original on stage, in press, and on the web during the run's development. As a result, players, collectors and fans are expected to snatch these up quickly. Known for it's unique, bluesy voice, "Skinnerburst" is also an exceptionally well balanced and beautiful guitar, with an instantly recognized color and wear patterns which Custom has captured through extensive, hands-on study of the guitar through a close collaboration with Joe. Joe has, of course, approved the final results, authenticating Gibson Custom's "Skinnerburst" as the real deal.
