An exclusive and modern take on the mythical original Black Beauty, the Les Paul Nashville Black Beauty 2017 is limited to only 150 instruments worldwide. It sports a magnificent Ebony finish on top of a hand-selected maple top and a mahogany body. The mahogany neck, with its rounded neck profile, is rolled for unparalleled comfort and playability.
Its dark, smooth, Richlite fingerboard is accentuated by 22 polished gold frets and genuine Mother of Pearl block inlays. Its multi-ply binding (7-ply for the body, 5-ply for the headstock), split diamond Mother of Pearl headstock inlays, and gold hardware complete its luscious looks. Thanks to its 3 Burstbucker pickups handwired with orange drop capacitors, it offers an unbelievable array of classic rock tones.
