The Les Paul BFG is one of the most versatile recreations of the legendary single-cutaway tone machine that Gibson has ever concocted. The gorgeous Les Paul BFG in worn ebony adds some stunning new tricks, and wraps it up in a look befitting of the sonic power that this meaty new tone monster represents. The inclusion of a pair of pickups that represent the best of Gibson’s innovative history provides a surprisingly wide range of sweet and snarling voices. Wrap it all in a stunning Gator Worn Ebony nitrocellulose finish complemented by chrome hardware, and a markerless fingerboard, and you’ve got a stunning new addition to the Les Paul BFG family.
Like every great Les Paul Standard-styled Gibson, the Les Paul BFG pairs the carved maple top and mahogany body (chambered for improved weight and resonance) that have helped to make the design legendary since 1952, while a glued-in mahogany neck with rounded Studio profile and a 22-fret fingerboard ensure optimum playability. Gibson Deluxe tuners, a Tune-o-matic bridge, a wraparound tailpiece, and a PLEK-cut Corian nut keep it all solid and singing with sustain.
The hot, beating heart of the Les Paul BFG Gator is found in its ingenious combination of two of Gibson’s most popular pickups of all time. A P-90 in the neck position yields all the biting, edgy, fat single-coil tones that have made this pickup a favorite since the 1940s. In the bridge position, a P-90 with a little extra oomph when you need it. Pickups are made with genuine Alnico magnets (Alnico V in the P-90), and the pair is routed through a network of independent volume controls, master tone control, three-way toggle switch.
Wrestle it into a padded Gibson gigbag with owner’s manual, adjustment literature, and Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service, and you’ve got one of the meanest and meatiest guitar packages available—the Les Paul BFG Gator, only from Gibson USA. Limited Run.
