Gibson Kirk Hammett Greeny Guitar
Introducing the Gibson Kirk Hammett "Greeny" Les Paul Standard, a guitar that pays homage to one of the most storied instruments in rock history. "Greeny" is a legendary Les Paul Standard that has been owned and played by three iconic guitarists: Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac, Gary Moore of Thin Lizzy, and Kirk Hammett of Metallica. With its unique sound and unmistakable appearance, the Gibson Kirk Hammett "Greeny" Les Paul Standard allows players around the world to experience the magic of this renowned guitar.
The original "Greeny" Les Paul Standard gained notoriety for its one-of-a-kind sound, which was partly attributed to the out-of-phase middle switch position, resulting from the neck pickup's reversed magnetic polarity. This distinctive sonic quality has been preserved in the Gibson Kirk Hammett "Greeny" Les Paul Standard, ensuring that guitarists can harness the same captivating tones that defined the careers of its legendary owners.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Gibson Kirk Hammett "Greeny" Les Paul Standard features a AAA figured maple top, which provides a visually striking appearance and contributes to its exceptional tonal qualities. The mahogany back and sides offer a warm, resonant foundation, while the mahogany neck ensures stability and a comfortable playing experience.
The fingerboard, made from rosewood, has a 12" radius and is adorned with acrylic trapezoid inlays for a classic Les Paul aesthetic. The guitar has a 24.75" scale length, a 50s vintage neck profile, and 22 frets.
The Kirk Hammett Gibson Guitar is equipped with Grover Rotomatic tuning machines featuring contemporary buttons, providing precise and stable tuning for the guitar. A Graph Tech 1.695" nut further enhances tuning stability and string spacing, ensuring consistent performance.
At the heart of this guitar's unique sound are the Greenybucker pickups, specifically designed to capture the essence of the original "Greeny" Les Paul Standard. The neck Greenybucker features reversed magnetic polarity and is reverse-mounted, replicating the out-of-phase tonality that made the original instrument so iconic. Each pickup has its own volume and tone controls, hand-wired with Orange Drop capacitors for smooth, vintage-inspired sound shaping.
In summary, the Gibson Kirk Hammett "Greeny" Les Paul Standard is a stunning tribute to one of the most iconic guitars in rock history, offering guitarists the chance to own a piece of this legendary instrument's legacy. From its beautiful AAA figured maple top to its distinctive Greenybucker pickups, this guitar is a testament to Gibson's commitment to quality, craftsmanship, and the pursuit of the ultimate in guitar performance.
