If you’re a fan of American blues legend Joe Bonamassa, you’ll probably salivate at the sight of the Gibson Les Paul Joe Bonamassa ‘Tomato Soup Burst’ Signature Limited Edition model. These beauties, which will all be hand signed by the man himself, boast a nylon nut, vintage style keystone tuners, a new (tomato soup like?) colour scheme and Joe’s own signature knob arrangement. If you’re looking for something super stylish, the Gibson Midtown Deluxe’s deep blue, ocean-esce colouring is certainly eye catching. This beauty also features genuine mother-of-pearl inlays on the headstock, hand selected mahogany wood on the body and neck, traditional block inlays and hand-wired controls.
If you’re after a classic look, the Gibson Les Paul Standard Mahogany Top is sure to tickle your fancy. With a top, body and neck made of pure mahogany, this is a sophisticated guitar that’s a little cheaper than the aforementioned products. Another one that caught our eye is the 7-string limited SGs, a highly in-demand product that is sure to grab many peoples attention.
