Gibson Les Paul 1959 Standard Lee Roy Parnell


Lee Roy Parnell is well known among country fans. In the 90s he was at the top of the country charts with songs like "A Little Bit Of You" and "Heart’s Desire". One of his most important idols as a young musician was the legendary Duane Allman, whose slide guitar playing significantly influenced him. Therefore it's not surprising that Lee Roy opted for a '57 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop which his great idol Duane Allman played at that time.
In 2011 a special Lee Roy Parnell '57 Goldtop Signature model was released by the Gibson Custom Shop. This Custom Shop model is now a sought-after classic Les Paul among collectors and guitarists worldwide. Lee Roy and the talented luthiers at Gibson Custom Shop took notice, and so began the process of creating a new version based on a flametop '59 Burst instead of a '57 Goldtop.

And here it is: Furnished with a beautiful "Abilene Sunset Fade" burst top, which was inspired by Lee Roy's hometown in Texas. Indeed, it's like watching a beautiful sunset! Under the hood, the guitar features a '57 Classic humbucker in the neck, a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge, and the all-new Vintage Tone Circuit which uses paper-in-oil capacitors and vintage taper potentiometers. A perfect combination for a great sound!
