Gibson USA have partnered with Joe Bonamassa, the living legend of blues rock, to create the Gibson Les Paul Joe Bonamassa Tomato Soup Burst limited edition. Designed to Joe’s exact specifications and hand-signed by the Master himself – as an homage to the early ’60s…

  • Tuners – vintage style keystone tuners with press in bushings, just like in the ’60s
  • Nut – as a specific requirement from Joe and an homage to the ’60s
    Serial number Easy to recall and exquisitely exclusive
  • Top and color – a beautifully figured AAA flamed maple top emphasized by our new Tomato Soup Burst color
  • Pickguard – Joe signed each pickguard individually before placing them in their signed case. At Joe’s request, the pickguards are placed in the case and not mounted on the guitar, so you can decide for yourself if you want it mounted or not.
  • Pickups – Joe Bonamassa’s Signature humbuckers
  • Tailpiece – Joe’s favorite, with the added bonus of not impacting the AAA top
    Knobs The same combination of 2 amber top hats and 2 gold top hats with aluminum inserts that is favored by Joe
  • Wiring – for an accurate recreation of the ’60s Les Paul tones, each guitar is hand-wired and features Orange Drop capacitors
  • Case – exclusive down to the case, each case is numbered and hand-signed by Joe Bonamassa. You will not mistake this case for any other.
