When blues-rock guitar legend Joe Bonamassa found “Lazarus,” a rare 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard, it was in poor condition and had been refinished red. Like the Biblical Lazarus, Joe’s original guitar was brought back to life. Once it was restored, its stunningly figured top was revealed. Now, Joe Bonamassa is once again collaborating with Epiphone, this time on a guitar inspired by his Gibson “Lazarus” 1959 Les Paul Standard.
Mahogany body topped with a wide-grain AAAA flame maple provides a warm tone with a stunning look.
’59 Rounded Medium C neck profile provides a vintage feel.
Gibson BurstBucker pickups with 50s style wiring with CTS potentiometers and Mallory capacitors provides thick, vintage tone.
Vintage-style case with Bonamassa graphics provides a signature look for fans.
