Here's what Gibson have to say:
"Were you expecting subtle? Then you dont know the player or the guitar. Gibson Custom is head over heels to present the legendary Billy F Gibbons take on our most visually revered guitar, the Les Paul Goldtop. Re-envisioned by Rock and Rolls most compelling character and statesman to both style and tone, the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop gets the makeover of a lifetime from the outside in.
Aesthetically, the first revision of an already eye-catching guitar in over 60 years is a masterpiece of style, featuring an original pinstripe design by Billy. the pinstripe design is recreated one at a time, by hand, by the very steady and respected hands of Rick Harris, along with our own artist, who Rick has himself trained. The subtle differences in each make each one a one-of-a-kind work of art. Adding to this unique individual character us Gibson Customs hand-aging process, which captures the wear of Billys own guitars with the added kitsch of a Texas-shaped wear pattern adorning each ones back (aged models only).
As a player, Billys world-renowned tone is delivered through two Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups, the only pickups to bear Billys name and stamp of approval. Billys signature tone is captured through the guitars lightweight, chambered mahogany body, carved from a single piece of wood. The added benefit of the guitars ultra-light overall weight makes it as comfortable to play as it is sonically inspiring. That comfort continues with its neck, a reproduction of Billys own Goldtop profile.
The Gibson Custom Billy F Gibbons Goldtop is being offered in limited runs of 50 hand-aged models, each played and hand-signed by Billy, 100 Aged models and 150 VOS models rounding out an offering of 300 in total."
