Gibson launch the Bats in Flight Les Paul Custom

Watch Out For Ozzy!

Spooky season is inbound, and Gibson's Custom Shop are looking to celebrate all things dark and gloomy with their new Bats in Flight Les Paul Custom.

Announced as a collaboration with Guitar Center, the Bats in Flight Les Paul boasts a premium AAAAA (that's five A's!) figured and double stained top, and definitely looks like something you'd see onstage with Ozzy Osbourne. The neck's adorned with a dark ebony fretboard with the titular Bats in Flight inlays as well as a custom headstock, while the Gibson CustomBuckers dish out classic raucous Les Paul tones. It's also got a pretty lavish body binding, which probably contains salt to keep away those pesky vampires. 

 

 

Obviously being a Custom Shop model, this one's being created in limited numbers and is pretty damn pricey, but it's still a pretty fresh little Halloween oddity. It even comes with a custom molded case - shame it's not a coffin though, huh?
