Product information - EPIPHONE Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" 1959 Les Paul Standard

Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" Les Paul electric guitar with Gibson BurstBucker pickups, including case

The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" 1959 Les Paul Standard is an authentic replica of Joe's original '59 Les Paul, affectionately called "Lazarus", which he bought in desolate condition during one of his "Guitar Safaris" and breathed new life into it. After its makeover, the instrument, which had been repainted red by the previous owner in the meantime, now presents a breathtaking maple top again with almost all original components from 1959 and can be heard on Joe Bonamassa's album "Royal Tea", among others. Epiphone now offers fans and collectors the opportunity to become part of this unique history with the Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" 1959 Les Paul Standard.

Risen from the Dead: The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" 1959 Les Paul Standard.

AAAA-grade curly maple veneer.

To recreate the stunning look of the original with intense grain and flame, Epiphone gives the maple tops of the Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" Les Paul a AAAA-grade curly maple veneer. The body and neck are traditionally crafted from mahogany and glued together via the classic long neck heel (long neck tenon) for added resonance. Thanks to historically correct '59 Rounded Medium C neck profile, familiar Paula feeling is established from the first second in all positions of the 22-fret Indian Laurel fingerboard.

Gibson BurstBucker Pickups & 50s Style Wiring

For the Lazarus Les Paul, guitar building legend Gibson donates two Gibson BurstBucker pickups known from their own US production. Modeled after the coveted PAF pickups of the golden Les Paul era, they produce classic Paula sounds with wide dynamic range and warm tonal character thanks to the use of alnico magnets. For the components in the electrical compartment Epiphone also draws from the full and relies on original CTS potentiometers, capacitors from Mallory and an authentic '50s Style Wiring.

Case and certificate included

The Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" 1959 Les Paul Standard comes with a vintage-style case that is true to the original and guaranteed to attract attention with its brown tolex look and additional "BONAMASSA NERDVILLE, CA" imprint. Furthermore, Epiphone certifies the authenticity of this special model with a signed certificate of authenticity.
