This guitar belonged to our good friend, Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem.
This Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul represents a musical history encompassing some of the most notable songs, recordings, and players of the 1960s and 70s. The original guitar which this model tributes started life as a 1957 Goldtop Les Paul, owned famously by John Sebastian, then Rick Derringer - who refinished the guitar from its factory gold to cherry red. The guitar was then found in the hands of Eric Clapton, then George Harrison. Both Clapton and Harrison would go on to use this guitar on some of their most renown works of their early careers.
In 2013, the Gibson Custom Shop faithfully and painstakingly reproduced this guitar in 100 available pieces, with allowance through the estate of George Harrison.
This guitar, dubbed by Harrison as "Lucy" features a one piece lightweight mahogany body with a plain-maple top with off-center seam (a feature of many '50s Goldtops). Lucy's mahogany neck - set with hot-hide glue - measures 0.907" at the 1st fret and 0.980" at the 12th, which Gibson Custom measured from the original '57 Les Paul. Electronically, this guitar is equipped with Gibson Alnico III Custom Buckers with Bumblebee capacitors, for period correct tone and accuracy to the original PAF pickups in Harrison's guitar. Other features include a nylon nut, ABR bridge, and Grover 12:1 "Kidney Bean" tuners.
This "Lucy" belonged to a longtime friend of Russo Music, who prides in the care and appreciation of electric and acoustic guitars. All accessories - including the leather-bound Certificate of Authenticity and 180-gram copy of The Beatles' White Album - are included with this Lucy as they were from original purchase.
