Gibson Custom Shop proudly presents the new Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard. The Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard is the ultimate mash-up of vintage Gibson aesthetics and modern player features and is available worldwide at Authorized Gibson Dealers.
AMATO has played Les Paul guitars on stage for the last four decades, but lately he has been forced to choose between his two favorites–a ’59 Reissue and a Les Paul Axcess. So began a collaboration between AMATO and the experts at Gibson Custom Shop to develop Dave’s “perfect” Les Paul. The result is a beautiful and versatile Les Paul Axcess guitar unlike anything else available. AMATO requested a figured top with a “Boston Sunset Fade” finish (inspired by his home town), a unique White Ebony fingerboard, an extra-chunky neck profile, a Floyd Rose tremolo and two ’57 Classic Plus humbuckers. AMATO also wanted the latest Axcess construction elements including a swept neck heel, revised back contours and an Apex headstock carve which naturally strengthens the neck. It is now AMATO’s main guitar on tour and in the studio, representing only the best of his favorite specs.
