Marc Bolan was at the forefront of the early ’70s rock scene, helping to shape the legendary “Glam Movement” with his driving boogie licks and larger than life stage presence. In the years that followed, Bolan’s work on songs like “Bang a Gong (Get It On),” “Jeepster” and “20th Century Boy” influenced artists as diverse as Def Leppard and Oasis.
For the first time, the Gibson Custom Shop is reproducing the guitar on which Bolan built that legacy. The Marc Bolan Les Paul captures the guitarist’s workhorse in its most iconic incarnation, with Bolan’s DIY finish (coined “Bolan Chablis”), ’50s Les Paul Standard specs and a black custom neck.
