NAMM 2012  Paul Kossoff made a huge impression on generations of future guitarists with his playing in the band Free in the ’70s.  Tragically, his life was cut short at just 25, but not before he had turned the heads of legends such as Clapton and Peter Green.  His main axe was a gorgeous sunburst 1959 Les Paul Standard, and now Gibson is paying tribute to his contribution with the Paul Kossoff 1959 Les Paul.  Only 100 of this limited edition guitar will be produced as aged replicas, and 250 VOS versions.  We got our hands on the prototype at the 2012 NAMM Show, and it is a truly beautiful replica, featuring the hand aged “green lemon” finish.  Both the aged and VOS versions will be available at The Music Zoo in 2012.
