It has been a few years since my last NGD, but I got carried away at an auction this week and bought a Gary Moore Sig. LP that was owned any played by Gary himself.

It was the first prototype, so some of the details are different to the final model that Gibson then sold as of 2013 as his Sig. guitar.

Better pics in a week or so when it gets delivered.

PS: Hope you are all well here, it has been a while ;)

Welcome back, Donal!

I guess you'll have to update your already impressive guitar wall!

I was kind of puzzled by the year model.
There was a Gary Moore Signature "regular production" model form 2000 - 2002.
It was a no nonsense model, no neck binding, faux body binding,
and no cover pickups. It had a figured top though.
Kind of a pimped up Studio. At a good value price.

That guitar sounded really different from other Les Pauls
because of the pickup construction and "reverse thing".
It had gold bell knobs.

If the 2013 model is anything like it tone wise, you've got yourself a winner!

Hi Bobby,

Thanks. I think you are referring to the BFG’s, they are amazing tone wise (I have one ) although most people didn’t like the “unfinished” finish.

Going by the serial number this is a 2012 but hard to say what was the basis for it (maybe a standard). Will be interesting to see if there is anything noted in the pick-up cavity.

It probably is an amazing guitar anyway as I assume Gibson would not have sent Gary anything but the best, even if it i prototype.

I will know more in a week or so, but to be honest I really only bought it because it was his (and a Les Paul) and it will probably never leave my music room (and I most definitely will not gig with it).

Nope.
Not the BFG.

Cool guitar, congrats!!

Gary was one of my main references as a guitar player, I could meet him in 09, when he played in Pamplona, and he kindly signed my guitar
