The Gibson Voodoo series was released in 2002, now 14 years later the Les Paul Voodoo is conjured back, tweaked & refined in a new limited edition. Back with a Swamp Ash body and a reverse JuJu satin nitro Voodoo custom finish…

The original was Swamp Ash body painted Ebony and then rubbed with red filler. The Ebony fretboard had a red pearl Voodoo skull at the 5th fret, black chrome hardware and Black Magic pickups. The 2016 Gibson Les Paul Voodoo has a Maple neck along with a slick Richlite fingerboard (also used on Les Paul Customs) and comes loaded with Alnico II Voodoo humbuckers.
