Gibson Dave Amato Axcess The Music Zoo

The Gibson Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard is the ultimate mash-up of vintage Gibson aesthetics and modern player features!

The Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard is the ultimate mash-up of vintage Gibson aesthetics and modern player features. Dave has played Les Pauls on stage for the last four decades, but lately he has been forced to choose between his two favorites -- a '59 Reissue and a Les Paul Axcess. So began a collaboration between Dave and the experts at Gibson Custom Shop to develop Dave's "perfect" Les Paul. The result is a beautiful and versatile Les Paul Axcess model unlike anything else available.

Dave requested a figured top with a "Boston Sunset Fade" finish (inspired by his home town), a unique White Ebony fingerboard, an extra-chunky neck profile, a Floyd Rose tremolo and two '57 Classic Plus humbuckers. He also wanted the latest Axcess construction elements including a swept neck heel, revised back contours and an Apex headstock carve which naturally strengthens the neck. It is now Dave's main guitar on tour and in the studio, representing only the best of his favorite specs. Scroll below to watch the demo video from Gibson!
