Like a great '60s LP
The basis of the Les Paul Joe Bonamassa "Tomato Soup Burst" Signature is a great '60s-style Les Paul. Every detail has been meticulously specified by Joe to sound and play like those highly sought after vintage instruments. A SlimTaper neck profile is among the most comfortable and popular offered by Gibson, and the electronics cavity has been handwired with period-correct orange drop capacitors. The AAA flame maple top caps the mahogany body, making a stunning visual statement.
Proprietary Seymour Duncan Humbuckers
The power of the Les Paul Joe Bonamassa "Tomato Soup Burst" Signature comes courtesy of a pair of proprietary Joe Bonamassa signature Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups. The Duncan 52-Nc and 53-Nc humbuckers deliver the clear-but-muscular performance of many of Gibson's vintage PAF designs, but tweaked to Joe's preferences. And you'll only find these pickups on the Tomato Soup Burst LP. Get one in your hands and get closer to Joe's iconic tone.
