Gibson Announce Signature Les Paul For ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons

(Gibson) Gibson has announced the release of the Billy F. Gibbons Goldtop Les Paul guitar that they say meets the ZZ Top maestro's exacting standards and then some.

Featuring a luminous goldtop finish adorned with a unique pinstripe designed by Billy himself, the instrument is visually dazzling. Ultra-light construction, custom electronics, a pair of Seymour Duncan "Pearly Gates" pickups, and a neck profile measured precisely from Gibbons' own Les Paul highlight an array of carefully considered sonic features.

150 of the Billy F. Gibbons Goldtops will be hand-aged, with 50 of them played and personally hand-signed by Billy. These 150 instruments will also sport a Texas-shaped "buckle rash" wear pattern on the back. An additional 150 VOS models round out the limited run of 300 of these exquisite guitars.
