Gibson Custom Shop James A. Willis Warhorse Les Paul Electric Guitar
Gibson's Artist in Residence James A. Willis has created numerous works of guitar art for the Gibson Custom Shop. The Warhorse guitar is one of Mr. Willis' finest creations.

Used 2015 Gibson Custom Shop Les Paul Custom Single Pickup Electric Guitar Silverburst
One pickup, a bad ass finish, and ABR-1 / stopbar. This used Single Pickup Custom is in excellent condition with no major signs of wear to be seen on it. This Single-Pickup Les Paul Custom from Gibson Custom Shop is identical to the Shop's standard two-pickup model, the exception being the elimination of the front pickup. With one pickup, no toggle switch and half the control knobs, there is a lot of room on the top of the instrument, making the guitar lighter, more resonant, and a lot of fun to play. Tone-wise it is a lot more versatile than what you might expect from a one-pickup instrument, from great warm jazz tones to a classic distortion with lots of mid-range and attack.
