Epiphone

Description

When blues-rock guitar legend Joe Bonamassa found the original "Lazarus," a rare 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, it was in poor condition. Like the Lazarus of Biblical texts, Joe's Les Paul guitar was brought back to life. Once it was restored, its stunningly figured top was revealed. Joe Bonamassa is once again collaborating with Epiphone, this time on a guitar inspired by his Gibson Lazarus 1959 Les Paul Standard. Featuring a mahogany body with a maple cap and topped with a wide-grain AAAA flame maple veneer, it's outfitted with Gibson BurstBucker pickups and ’50s style wiring with CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors. It comes in a vintage-style case with Bonamassa graphics with a Certificate of Authenticity.
