(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.
