2009 Gibson Les Paul BFG Gary Moore Signature


Introduced in 2009 with thin satin Lemon Burst finish. Mine is 2009 built. Gibson ended them some years ago. And it´s on the way to get very rare and sought after. It is similar to the BFG model except two 60s knobs and one 50s knob. It has got a P 90 and a Bursbucker 3 bridge pickup. It´s really featherweight with the chambered mahogany body and acoustically really loud guitar. The body enormously resonates resulting in a lively ringing electric tone What I like is that chunky neck with 22 medium -jumbo frets, a baseball bat. This guitar sounds absolutely awesome. Listen to the vids.

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.
With satin nitrocellulose finish, the Gary Moore Signature Les Paul BFG is a stripped-down Les Paul, with no body or neck binding. This model has an uncovered Zebra Burstbucker 3 humbucker in the bridge, with a single-coil P-90 in the neck, all controlled by two top hat style volume controls and one tone knob. The traditional toggle switch has been wired to act as a kill switch, and a smaller toggle pickup selector switch in the place of the missing tone knob controls pickup selection. The mahogany body is chambered for weight relief and the unbound fingerboard is rosewood without position marker inlays (although there are probably side dots).
