The BFG Limited Edition consists of the first 52 guitars produced in each color with a handwritten serial number showing the guitar's place in the run of 52. The father of the guitar that bears his name has signed the headstock.
A decidedly nontraditional Les Paul for rockers who want a Les Paul with attitude and don't care about good looks. It has the sound and playability you'd expect from a Les Paul, while its raw look stands Les Paul styling on its head: unsanded top, no binding, no pickup rings, no truss rod cover, no toggle switch rings, no fretboard position indicators (dots on the side only), with wooden knobs that have no numbers.
This rough and tough guitar has sonics to match: steamy hot tones from the novel pickup combination of a single coil P-90 in the neck and a BurstBucker 3 in the bridge - like having a Les Paul Special and a Standard in one guitar.
Mini toggle pickup selection switch located near two volume and one master tone controls. Kill switch located where rhythm/lead switch used to be.
"Distressed" stop bar, Tune-o-matic bridge, and Grovers and "shopworn" case complete the raw look of this very different looking Les Paul.

The new Gibson BFG is the best sounding LP I have ever played. It is not traditional and this guitar has an attitude. Anyone who plys my BFG falls in love with it. It seems to play itself and what a pleasure to own and play. I own vintage Gibsons and they sit now...I always play the BFG. It is my main axe for everything....all they need to do now is make a BFG robot and it will top the scales. When you buy a BFG you are getting Gibson quality at a rock bottom price. No bells...no whistled...just straight tone and amazing feel. The factory set-up is amazing and the look of this bad girl is ...well sexy! You either love it or hate it and I think this is a soon to be classic. Gibson created an affordable guitar for the average guy and a sound and feel that is classic to LP's. The sustain is what you'd expect from a LP and the feel is incredible. Do yourself a favor and check it out!
