Gibson Kirk Hammett 1989 Les Paul Custom Ebony

An Artfully Recreated and Aged Version of the Metallica Icon’s Versatile Les Paul Custom

To fans of metal, Kirk Hammett needs no introduction. Long-time fans will also no doubt be familiar with his “blacked-out” 1989 Gibson Les Paul™ Custom, which he has used on numerous Metallica albums and tours. Now the Gibson Custom Shop has recreated this renowned guitar in exquisite detail. Like the original, the Kirk Hammett 1989 Les Paul Custom features all-black hardware, and per Kirk’s wishes, it comes equipped with uncovered T-Type pickups, along with a Fishman® Powerbridge piezo bridge pickup system with a Fishman Powerchip preamp and volume control that bring simulated full-bodied acoustic tone to this versatile Les Paul Custom. Artfully aged by the Murphy Lab to match the look and feel of Kirk’s original 1989 Les Paul Custom, it is a fitting tribute to a metal guitar master and one of his favourite instruments.

The Gibson Kirk Hammett 1989 Les Paul custom is available in a very limited quantity in Australia. Please contact your local Gibson dealer for more details.
