2009 Gibson Les Paul Gary Moore BFG

It’s no coincidence that Gibson USA’s Gary Moore Signature Les Paul guitar is a BFG – perhaps the mightiest and most extreme Les Paul to ever leave a Gibson factory. The Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG takes the raw, unrefined power of Gibson’s classic BFG and matches it with the look of Moore’s personal and legendary Les Paul Standards from the late 1950s, resulting in a beautifully radical Les Paul that certainly embodies Moore’s iconic status among the world’s finest guitarists. The Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG is a stripped-down version of the iconic Les Paul, featuring Gibson’s high-powered and uncovered Zebra Burstbucker 3 humbucker in the bridge, and a classic, screaming single-coil P-90 in the neck, all controlled by two volumes and one tone knob. The traditional toggle switch has been rewired to act as a kill switch, and a smaller toggle at the volume knobs controls pickup selection. Rounding out this rock and roll machine is an unsanded plain maple top on an unfinished, chambered mahogany body, with a unique Lemon Burst finish similar to the faded appearance of Moore’s original Les Pauls. The neck is a perfectly matched one-piece mahogany neck with a ’50s rounded profile – also just like Moore’s favorite original Les Pauls. There is no binding, no fretboard inlays, and the hardware has a unique distressed look that magnifies the BFG’s distinct, bare-bones look. The Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG is an innovative powerhouse, and a true testament to one of rock and roll’s greatest living legends.
