Description

One of only 50 produced, this “Billy Gibbons Pearly Gates Les Paul Aged” model replicates the ZZ Top guitarist’s iconic 1959 Les Paul, widely known as “Pearly Gates”.

The maple top has a unique mix of flame/burl-like figure, and Tom Murphy’s aging treatment recreates the original’s play wear and coloring to the smallest details.

The body carve and neck profile is different from that of regular Historic Collection models, and distinguishable features such as the plus screw pickguard and metal output jack plate have been duplicated as well.

Pickups are Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbuckers.

Control knobs, pickup covers, pickup rings, tailpiece studs, tuner buttons, bridge washers, and pickguard bracket have been upgraded to DMC, and comes with the original parts except the tuner buttons and control knobs.

There is a sign of light use, but the frets are 70-80% remaining, and the neck and trussrod is in perfect working condition. There is no issue regarding playability.
