When Joe Bonamassa took the stage at 12 years old as the opening act for BB King, it was the first step of a legend in the making. Today, Joe is the undeniable face of modern blues, a purist Blues Man carrying the torch to the next generation, a balance of reverence for the past and a genuinely innovative mind. 

Since that very early beginning, Joe Bonamassa and Gibson guitars have been inseparable. And, as Joe’s career continues to skyrocket, the relationship continues to evolve; from replicas of some of Joe’s original vintage Gibsons (from his growing collection), to new guitars designed in collaboration with Gibson’s team of Custom Shop luthiers and craftspeople.

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 don’t need to be fixed; Custom Bucker PAF pickups and classic LP weight and feel, for example.

Bonamassa approved tone and feel aside, Bonabyrd is also a triumph of style, combining the classic LP body shape, a stage grabbing Antique Pelham Blue nitro-cellulose finish and a ’60’s retro Firebird headstock.

All in all, Bonabyrd comes together as a reflection of the artist himself; a dyed-in-the-wool Blues icon that understands and honors his past while playing outside the lines just enough to keep it fun.

Bonabyrd is offered in a limited run of 100 guitars worldwide, each one signed and played by Joe Bonamassa. Each comes with a limited edition Certificate Authenticity, 2015 Gibson Custom Medallion and Gibson Custom hardshell case.
