    Product Description

    Joe Bonamassa has worked closely with Epiphone luthiers to create his third Signature model which features a custom Inverness Green finish, Gibson Burstbuckers, classic Bigsby B70 vibrato and a Lifton case. Including many of his favorite design details, this guitar has sustain for days. The Burstbuckers have their own voice so players can develop their individual sound. Includes hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity and Epiphone strapLocks.

    Modern blues legend and GRAMMY nominee Joe Bonamassa has been part of the “House of Stathopoulo” family since 2011 and worked closely with Epiphone’s luthiers at the Epi headquarters in Nashville to create a new Les Paul Standard that incorporated his favorite features from his collection of priceless vintage Les Pauls from the late 50s, this time with a Bigsby B70 vibrato!

    Over the last decade, Joe Bonamassa’s original fusion of electric blues and rock has inspired a new generation of fans and musicians. Bonamassa is not only a superb and prolific artist but also a genuine music fan—deeply committed to the story and heritage of the many players who have inspired his sound, from Rolling Fork, Mississippi to London. Bonamassa’s extraordinary technique and passionate performances have already inspired two signature Limited Edition Epiphone Les Paul Standards, the “Goldtop” and the Les Paul Standard in Pelham Blue. Now, Bonamassa adds a new twist with the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit, the first Epiphone Les Paul signature model with the classic Bigsby B70 vibrato, especially chosen by Joe to match his own prized vintage Les Paul!

    “Sustain for Days:”
    The new "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit was designed in close cooperation with Joe and includes many of his favorite design details drawn from his collection of vintage Les Paul Standards--designed by Mr. Les Paul himself to “sustain for days.” The “2015” has a Mahogany body with the same classic “Les Paul” profile used on all Les Pauls since they were first produced at the Gibson/Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The top has a Carved Maple Cap and is finished in Inverness Green at Joe’s request. The traditional Mahogany neck has a rounded D-profile with a “1959” shape modeled after Joe’s favorite ’59 Les Paul Standard and is deep-set into the body and hand-glued. The neck has a 12” radius with a Rosewood fingerboard with “Trapezoid” inlays, a standard 24.75” scale length, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a standard 1 11/16 nut. The truss rod cover has the now familiar Les Paul “bell-shape” with “Bonamassa” engraved in capital letters and the trademark “Les Paul” signature in gold on the headstock.

    Gibson USA Burstbucker Pickups:
    Joe Bonamassa has counted on Gibson Burstbucker humbuckers for all of his Epiphone signature models as well as his rare custom models. Nothing else comes closer to the sound of late 50s hand-wound “PAF”-style humbuckers than Gibson USA Burstbuckers. Joe’s new “2015” Epiphone Les Paul features a Burstbucker-2 in the neck position a slighter hotter-wound Burstbucker-3 in the bridge position. There’s no better match-up than a Les Paul with humbuckers and just like the originals, each Gibson USA Burstbucker humbucker has its own individual “voice” enabling players to develop their own person tone and style. The original humbucker was first invented and perfected at the Gibson/Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Burstbuckers feature unpolished magnets and non-potted coils like the first generation of humbuckers. The myriad of variations in the output and tone of original “Patent Applied For” pickups came from inconsistencies in winding the bobbins, a result of the lack of automatic shutoffs on Gibson's winding machines in the late 1950s. Seth Lover, who invented the humbucker, recalled that original “Patent Applied For” pickups were wound "until they were full." When two coils in a pickup have a different number of turns, that variation puts a little "edge" or "bite" on the classic humbucker sound.

    Controls
    Controls for the new Ltd. Ed. Epiphone "2015" Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby Outfit feature the now-classic set of mismatched Gold “Top Hat” knobs for the bridge and neck pickup controls, just like Joe’s favorite ’59 Les Paul Standard. Epiphone's patent-applied-for LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and the rock standard Bigsby vibrato along with premium Grover machine heads with a 18:1 tuning ratio, make set-up and intonation easy and rock solid. And of course, the Joe Bonamassa “2015” Les Paul comes with Epiphone standard solid Nickel hardware, an Epiphone non-rotating 1/4” output jack, and Epiphone StrapLocks. And to complete the look of Joe’s priceless vintage Les Pauls, Joe’s new “2015” Epiphone Les Paul comes with a classic “Lifton Styled” Hard Shell Case along with a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by Joe Bonamassa.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    fit and finish wonderful, no flaws, action and neck adjustments were necessary, this may be due to the winter weather and the ground shipping.

    Nightmare
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Guitar weight and neck thickness....great....sustain...superb... Bigsby trem system...NIGHTMARE! I had to set it up out of the box....bridge was too high, intonation was off. Then after doing all that....I tried using the Bigsby trem.....Guitar went totally out of tune after doing a few light bends on the Bigsby.. Called up tech support...was told you have to totally stretch the strings so they seat well around the Bigsby system bar....did it.....kept going out of tune....then it wouldn't hold an intonation....I was going nuts.. Finally I put it back in the box. The burstbucker pickups were ok....they def were not better than the 490r and 498T. I have an epi les paul with coil tap with the above mentioned 490 and 498....much better roar than the burstbuckers. Guitar is going back...sad to say...I truly liked the build on this guitar....If I can find another model with the same body weight and the same neck thickness WITHOUT THE BIGSBY TREM.....I'll def think of buying it.

    With the Gibson USA pickups and the Grover tuners, this is truly a terrific guitar. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a real Les Paul at a price that won't break the bank. It plays and sounds great.

    Over The Top!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul is an over the top amazing guitar! The setup was virtually perfect and it played beautifully right out of the case. Heck, it was even pretty much in tune! I inspected this guitar with a very critical eye and I can say that mine is flawless in both fit and finish. This guitar has some serious "heft" to it and it sustains even when played unamplified. Plugging it into my amp and playing it sent me into a state of guitar ecstasy! The Gibson "burstbucker" pickups emitted a sonorous singing quality. The notes were very clear and articulated without any "muddiness". I was inspired to jam along with a Gary Moore CD on the tune "Still Got The Blues" and oh my, this Joe Bonamassa guitar delivered the goods in spades! Finally, I must commend AMS for its rapid response to my order and for delivering to me my "dream" guitar on schedule and in perfect condition. AMS will be my "go to" source for future purchases!

    Truly amazing instrument,
    What is your opinion of this product?
    My Epi Joe arrived with a pretty darn good set up and played beautifully right out of the box, Buttery low action and stunning pinch harmonics with the Burstbuckers which leapt out of my Mesa Boogie Mark 5 25! This is so far beyond what you'd expect nowadays at this price point that it is mind blowing, to say the least! Quindong ROCKS!!!
