      Gibson Custom Tak Matsumoto Signature Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar (107885725)

A splendid guitar with a natural, singing sustain, a signature neck profile and versatile tone.

As a world acclaimed six-string virtuoso, Tak joined legendary guitarists Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Ace Frehley and Slash to become the fifth guitarist on the planet to have his own Gibson signature model, the 'Tak Matsumoto Les Paul.'

The Gibson Custom Tak Matsumoto Signature Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar has a custom double cutaway body. It's made with the soulful combination of a 2-piece plain maple top and a 1-piece mahogany back. The 1-piece set mahogany neck has a scale length of 24-3/4" and the comfortable Tak Matsumoto profile for playing speed and accuracy. The 22-fret fingerboard is of Richlite, a dense material made from renewable wood resources. Burstbucker 3 and 2 pickups provide plenty of reliable output and sonic diversity. Vintage-style tuners and an ABR-1 bridge with stopbar tailpiece complete the list of Tak-approved features.

Beginning his career as a session musician, Tak's exposure to a myriad of musical styles molded his own unique blend, by incorporating elements of jazz, blues, classical, metal, rock and ska. He released the critically acclaimed instrumental albums Hana and Dragon From the West to rave reviews for their powerful flowing melodies and evocative imagery.

In 2010, Tak joined forces with jazz guitarist Larry Carlton and released the album Take Your Pick. Drawing upon their knowledge and different musical backgrounds, Tak and Larry blended their Eastern and Western guitar styles to create a truly magical and unique album. After a successful tour of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan, Take Your Pick won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental album at the 53rd Grammy Awards in February 2011.
