Donated by Billy Gibbons & The Gibson Foundation, bid on a Les Paul Traditional Premium Finish 2016 “T” Iced Tea electric guitar, hand-signed and embellished by legendary guitarist Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. The auction winner will also receive a guitar case and hi-res photos of Billy signing the guitar.
The guitar features a “traditional” weight-relieved mahogany body that reduces weight while maintaining sustain, Maple plus top, Mahogany ’50s rounded style neck, Rosewood Fingerboard, ’57 Classic Plus (bridge) and 57′ Classic (neck) Pickups, two volume, two tone, 3-way pickup selector switch controls, chrome Nashville Tune-0-matic bridge, chrome stopbar tailpiece, Tone Pros Kluson-style tuners.
The Les Paul Traditional 2016 T’s foundation is the same traditional tonewood combination that helped make the Les Paul a legend when it was introduced six decades ago. A traditional pickup wind in the neck position provides plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, slightly over-wound coils in the ’57 Classic Plus offer wailing lead tones.
