Joe is seldom seen without a Les Paul in hand and this limited edition model has a great list of features and one very special touch... A Firebird headstock. This is a great representation of his approach to music, the combination of vintage style with modern technique that results in a great sound... and the guitar is exactly the same.

Each guitar comes with a numbered certificate, a custom medallion and a Gibson hardcase.

Gibson Custom Pickups

This guitar has a stunning set of electrics, custom designed Humbucker pickups that are truly fantastic. They sound rich, full and give you warm chords through to blistering lead line tones. Joe is a prolific player who crosses every blues style on stage and he relies on his pickups for a wide range of tones. From modern funky driven blues to vintage crunch and that warm, clean intro so many blues classics kick off with this pickup set will handle with ease.  

Half bird, half paul.

So the combination of the 50's style firebird head and a classic les paul body is certainly something different. Joe has a truly incredible ear for tone and he designed his bonabyrd for great sustain, stunning bends and classic vintage tone.

"I suppose my calling card is the Bona–byrds I did with Gibson, a Thunderbird headstock on a Les Paul. It gives people something to talk about – 'Wow, look at that crazy looking dude playing crazy sounding blues on that crazy looking guitar!" - Joe Bonnamassa

Great style and setup

The spec list for this guitar is basically a list of the best features from guitar history. It's coated in an antique Pelham Blue finish with Nitro cellulose laquer. The body is 1 piece Mahogany with a Maple top  and has a solid, vintage weight to it. The finishing touch is a subtle white trim that matches the pickguard and pickup surrounds. This is one great looking guitar.

Here's what Gibson have to say about this guitar

The introduction of the new and limited edition Bonabyrd reflects as much of Joe's unique personality as a player as it does his incredible ear for tone. Like Joe, the Bonabyrd is steeped in legacy and in proven concepts of design that pay homage to the simple truth that some things dont need to be fixed. Custom Bucker PAF pickups and classic LP weight and feel for example.
