The BFG model or the "Barely Finished Guitar". Please scroll down to see all the photos.The Les Paul BFG in all its variations has won fans the world over, proving itself one of the most versatile incarnations of the legendary single-cutaway tone machine that Gibson has ever concocted. Now the Les Paul BFG Gator adds some stunning new tricks, and wraps it up in a look befitting of the sonic power that this meaty new tone monster represents. The addition of a fun and effective kill switch in the usual position of the three-way selector puts plenty of new tricks up this BFGs sleeve, while the inclusion of a pair of pickups that represent the best of Gibsons innovative history provides a surprisingly wide range of sweet and snarling voices. Wrap it all in a stunning Gator Green nitrocellulose finish complemented by black-plated hardware, a green Gibson logo, and a markerless fingerboard, and youve got a stunning new addition to the Les Paul BFG family.
Like every great Les Paul Standard-styled Gibson, the Les Paul BFG Gator pairs the carved mapletop and mahog body (chambered for improved weight and resonance) that have helped to make the design legendary since 1952, while a glued-in mahog neck with rounded Studio profile and a 22-fret fingerboard ensure optimum playability. While the BFG is traditionally a no-frills model with minimal adornments, a set of genuine wood control knobs adds an extra touch of class to this guitar, and beautifully complements the three-dimensional gator scales look of the grain-textured satin finish. Grover® tuners, a Tune-o-matic bridge, a wraparound tailpiece, and a PLEK-cut Corian nut keep it all solid and singing with sustain, and translucent control plates round back let you see whats going on under the hood.The hot, beating heart of the Les Paul BFG Gator is found in its ingenious combination of two of Gibsons most popular pickups of all time. In the bridge position, a BurstBucker 3 presents classic PAF-style clarity and depth, with a little extra oomph when you need it, courtesy of slightly overwound coils, which are also wax potted to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Both pickups are made with genuine Alnico magnets (Alnico V in the P-90, Alnico II in the BB3), and the pair is routed through a network of independent volume controls, master tone control, three-way toggle switch. As a fun bonus, theres also a kill switch mounted in the usual upper-bout selector switch position, handy for dramatic stutter and chopper effects. Are you looking to sell your guitar?
