Some guitars are highly prized for their vintage; others are desirable for their associations with major artists; very few are both. Now Gibson Custom brings together George Harrison and Eric Clapton, two of the greatest rock legends of all time, with one stunning instrument — the Harrison-Clapton 1957 Les Paul Standard “Lucy.”

This historic Les Paul is a strictly limited edition of just 100 guitars worldwide. The music world knows this guitar best as the red Les Paul that George Harrison used on so many Beatles recordings in the final years of the band’s career.

Clapton gave “Lucy” to his good friend George Harrison in 1968, but it first made Beatles history back in Clapton’s hands again on September 6 of that year, when Harrison invited the Cream star to record the now-legendary solo to “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

Gibson Harrison Clapton 1957 Les Paul Standard Lucy features:

  • One-piece lightweight mahogany body with plain-maple top
  • Mahogany neck with a full, rounded ’50s profile
  • One-piece rosewood fingerboard with nitrocellulose trapezoid inlays
  • Two Custom Bucker humbucking pickups with Alnico III magnets in the neck and bridge
  • ABR bridge with nickel-plated aluminum stop bar tailpiece
  • Grover kidney button tuners with 12:1 tuning ratio

Could this be 2013 Guitar of the Year? You decide…
