    “1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard. My first of the four original sunburst Les Pauls that I own. This guitar serial #9-0829 is named “Magellan”. I named this guitar after the great explorer because I managed to circumnavigate the globe with it on a world tour in 2011 battling airlines (especially in Australia) all to get the guitar to London to do a show filling in for the late great Gary Moore with the legendary Jack Bruce at Royal Festival Hall. Unfortunately I will never do that again as it is too dangerous to do so. I love this guitar and will always treasure it and will always be grateful to my friend Eliot Michael at Rumbleseat Music for his trust and generosity.”

    I like how the tuning pegs have turned sort of a brownish color on 9-0829. Very cool.

    Joe has Bigsbys on several of his Historics, both Bursts and GTs.

    The one on the far right in the family pic is the only '58-'60 Burst he has with a Bigsby and it came that way from the factory in 1960.
