Gibson has debuted the Sully Erna Les Paul Studio, an eye-catching signature guitar for the frontman of acclaimed metal band Godsmack.
Special touches include an Ebony Black finish with pearlescent white Godsmack sun emblem, subtle double-star 12th fret inlays, hot-stamped signature truss-rod cover, and a Sully Erna moon-and-star emblem on the headstock. Among the sonic surprises hidden within this stripped-down Les Paul are a built-in flanger accessed by a push-pull switch on the master tone pot, and a kill switch in the traditional toggle selector position.
“Put it all together, and the Sully Erna Godsmack Les Paul is a powerful statement in the eyes and ears of all who behold it, and a guitar totally fitting for this uncompromising artist,” says Gibson. The Sully Erna Les Paul Studio has an RRP of $2332.
Erna is still working with Godsmack, but they are currently on a break. Erna recently said, “We’ll contact each other sometime near the end of 2013 and talk about when it’s right to do another record, but right now we’re taking a hiatus to rest and hang out with our families and friends.” Erna released his solo album Avalon in 2010 after working on it for seven years.
