Poet . . . prophet . . . musician . . . Bob Marley was many things to many people, and the instrument he played was just as unique. Painstaking research and detailing was done using Bob’s original Les Paul Special to create this model, and the consensus is that this is one of the most spectacular additions to the Gibson Custom Shop’s Signature Series of guitars. Aged-cherry finish on a solid mahogany body, mahogany neck, and genuine P-90 single-coil pickups generate that inimitable Marley tone. Bound fingerboard and overbound headstock plus aged hardware including aluminum pickguard, football-shaped switch plate, brass nut, lightweight aluminum tailpiece, and Mini-Schaller tuners add up to a magical likeness of the original. Rosewood fretboard, 24-3/4″ scale length, and 1-11/16″ nut width.
Includes hardshell case, certificate, Custom Care Kit, and display case.
