Epiphone Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard Bigsby 2015

Modern blues legend and Grammy nominee Joe Bonamassa returns with his third Epiphone Signature Model, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. “2015” Joe Bonamassa Les Paul Standard w/Bigsby® Outfit…

Featuring a one-of-a-kind Inverness Green color finish, Gibson® Burstbucker™ humbucker pickups, and a classic Bigsby® B70 vibrato along with a Les Paul-classic “Lifton” style hard case.

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!

Joe Bonamassa already has 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!
“Jim Rosenberg (Epiphone President) and I talked about doing something different for our third signature guitar. I’m a fan of the 5-speed transmission. I love a Bigsby®. So we talked about doing a different color this time– more of a British racing green or an Inverness Green. And the way it came out sort of reminds me of a Jaguar green. We’ve had such a great success with these Epiphone guitars and I thought it would be good to have something with a Bigsby, not just the standard “Joe B Les Paul” model in a different color. I wanted something that played great and could add to the value without too much of an added expense and you know… make it cooler!”Joe Bonamassa
