Weight of guitar: 7.4 lbs. Gibson USA Gary Moore Signature BFG Les Paul Electric Guitar - w/ Hardshell Case. Gibson USA Gary Moore Signature BFG Les Paul Electric Guitar - With Hardshell Gibson USA Case, Owner's Manual & Info Card. The Gary Moore BFG begins with the timeless tonewood combination of a carved maple top with a select mahogany body, as used for Gibson's legendary Les Pauls since 1952.
On this guitar, the mahogany is strategically chambered to reduce weight and enhance resonance, giving you a Les Paul that really sings without breaking your back. While it carries a gorgeously figured maple top like Moore's favorite Les Paul Standards, it is treated to the raw finishing process that helps to give the BFG series its no-nonsense character. This look is extended to the baked maple fingerboard, which is left unbound, with no marker inlays (other than side dots for positioning), and the guitar's lack of pickguard and its mismatched set of one amber top-hat knob and two gold top-hat knobs with silver inserts. If the finish is raw, however, the feel is not, with a rounded'50s neck profile that's ultra comfortable in the hand, and 22 medium-jumbo frets that are immaculately polished and crowned for superb playability.
Anchor it all down with kidney button Grover tuners, a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece combo and you've got an instrument that's primed to do the dirty work. FEATURES: Body and Finish The body of the Gary Moore BFG is made from a top carved from highly figured maple and a back of chambered select mahogany. This combination offers the classic tonal advantages of bright, crisp maple and warm, juicy mahogany, with enhanced resonance and reduced weight.
The guitar is finished in the raw BFG process in "lemonburst" nitrocellulose. Pickups and Electronics The Gary Moore BFG carries a simple complement of mismatched pickups that is tailor-made for versatile blues tones. These are routed through independent volume controls, a master tone, a three-way toggle switch, and a "kill" switch for stunning muted effects.
Neck, Headstock and Fingerboard The neck of the Gary Moore BFG is constructed from solid quarter-sawn mahogany for optimum strength and resonance, and capped with an unbound, unadorned baked maple fingerboard. Its headstock is back-angled at the traditional 17 degrees, a design point that increases string pressure in the nut slots to enhance resonance and sustain. Hardware In classic Les Paul style, the Gary Moore BFG is appointed with the combo of chrome-plated Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece for rock-solid tones and precise intonation adjustment. Its headstock is loaded with high-quality Grover tuners, and it stays firmly strapped on, thanks to a pair of traditional Gibson aluminum strap buttons.
