Billy Morrison Signature Les Paul


This is what Gibson has to say about the new Billy Morrison Signature Les Paul:
From his work as a heavy-riffin' band leader and rhythm guitarist to his acting and his stint as a radio presenter, Billy Morrison has established a major presence in the rock and entertainment worlds. Audiences around the globe have experienced his searing chops and eviscerating tone through his touring with Circus Diablo, Billy Idol and The Cult. His high-octane all-star cover band Camp Freddy has become a major fixture on Los Angeles' bustling music scene. To honor Billy's achievements, Gibson USA unveils the Billy Morrison Les Paul. A top-flight Les Paul Standard with custom-style appointments and high-performance electronics, the Billy Morrison Les Paul offers everything a hard-rocking guitarist needs to get the job done, and to look great in the process.
As Billy himself puts it, "For me, as a kid, the Gibson Les Paul was the guitar that the cool people played. The people that made the music I loved, that were in the bands that turned me on and made me feel alive, from Jimmy Page in Led Zeppelin, through Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Mick Ronson with David Bowie." As such, the Billy Morrison Les Paul is a Les Paul for the ages, primed to rip out the classic rock, but able to handle anything from blues to metal to shred with ease.
