Gary Moore - Lemon burst

info ex Wikipedia

Gary Moore created his own signature Les Paul in the early 2000s, characterised by a yellow flame top, no binding and signature truss rod cover. It featured two open-topped humbucker pickups, one with "zebra coils" (one white and one black bobbin). In 2009, Gibson released another Gary Moore signature guitar, the Gibson Gary Moore BFG Les Paul. The Gary Moore BFG is much like their previous Les Paul BFG series, with the added styling of Moore's various 1950s Les Paul Standards

Gary Moore Les Paul Standard

From his scorching playing with Skid Row and Thin Lizzy to his incendiary solo work, Gary Moore produced some of the most powerful guitar performances known to stage and studio from the mid ’70s right up until his untimely death in 2011. Throughout his career, Moore virtually defined high-octane blues-rock, coining a signature tone that thousands have sought to emulate. Across three decades of playing, his weapon of choice remained the mighty Les Paul, one of which was the legendary ’59 Burst originally owned by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green.

Now Gibson USA honors this certified guitar legend with the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard, a first-class Les Paul decked out to this demanding artist’s preferred specifications. Many details are reminiscent of the famed “Peter Green Les Paul,” formerly played by Gary Moore and now owned by collector Melvyn Franks. From its highly flamed maple top with Lemonburst finish, to its traditional Les Paul Model headstock with signature truss-rod cover, to its mismatched amber and gold top-hat knobs, the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard offers uncompromising looks. Plug in and fire up its BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickups via Orange Drop tone caps, all anchored with a quality TonePros™ hardware, and it rips it up with a tone fit to carry the name, Gary Moore.

 

Body and Neck

The Gary Moore Les Paul Standard is rooted in Les Paul tradition, with a top carved from figured Grade-AA maple, and a back crafted from Grade-A mahogany. To better show of the luscious nitrocellulose Lemonburst finish, the body carries no binding or pickguard. It is strategically weight-relieved to render this a superbly comfortable guitar. The neck is made from quarter-sawn Grade-A mahogany and carved to a rounded ’50s profile that measures 0.818” at the 1st fret and 0.963” at the 12th. It is topped with an unbound Granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays.

Pickups and Electronics

The two BurstBucker Pro pickups on the Gary Moore Les Paul Standard blend the best of Gibson’s hallowed PAF humbuckers with the versatility required by today’s high-gain rockers. These pickups are made with Alnico V magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire—with extra turns in the bridge pickup’s coils for a hotter lead sound—but are wax potted to withstand high volume levels without microphonic squeal. The neck pickup is reversed in its mounting, in recognition of a similar modification to Peter Green’s Les Paul. The guitar carries the traditional control layout, with Orange Drop tone capacitors, and mismatched amber and gold top hat knobs on the neck and bridge pickup controls respectively.

Hardware and Appointments

A TonePros™ Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece with locking mounting hardware partner with TonePros™ Kluson green-key tuners to comprise a first-class hardware set.

Cases and Extras

Wrap it up in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with Gary Moore signature, owner’s manual, adjustment literature, and Gibson USA’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, and it’s a fitting tribute to the man himself.

an interesting observation

Dont often reply to comments but I have to respectfully correct your observations. As a lifelong Gary Moore fan I am fortunate to own a 2013 Gary Moore Tribute Les Paul Standard along with a 2000 Gary Moore Lemonburst Tribute, a Gary Moore BFG and a Gibson Les Paul Collectors Choice #1 and these guitars are my favourites amongst quite a few other Gibson Les Pauls I am lucky enough to play and own.

However the 2013 tribute LP does not claim to be a replica of the 1959 Les Paul Standard (Greenie) that you compare it to, but is a tribute based on another Les Paul owned and played on stage by the legendary Gary Moore as seen on youtube playing the classic Parisienne Walkways.

A Heavy-Hitting Les Paul, for Blues-Rock's Hardest Riffslinger

The Gary Moore BFG begins with the timeless tonewood combination of a carved maple top with a select mahogany body, as used for Gibson's legendary Les Pauls since 1952. On this guitar, the mahogany is strategically chambered to reduce weight and enhance resonance, giving you a Les Paul that really sings without breaking your back. While it carries a gorgeously figured maple top like Moore's favorite Les Paul Standards, it is treated to the raw finishing process that helps to give the BFG series its no-nonsense character.

This look is extended to the baked maple fingerboard, which is left unbound, with no marker inlays (other than side dots for positioning), and the guitar's lack of pickguard and its mismatched set of one amber top-hat knob and two gold top-hat knobs with silver inserts. If the finish is raw, however, the feel is not, with a rounded '50s neck profile that's ultra comfortable in the hand, and 22 medium-jumbo frets that are immaculately polished and crowned for superb playability. The Gary Moore BFG rams its raw resonance through a powerful mismatched pickup set of a vintage-style P-90 single-coil pickup in the neck position and a slightly overwound Burstbucker 3 with zebra coils in the bridge, routed through individual volume controls, a master tone control, the traditional three-way switch, and a clever kill switch to mute all output for stunning sonic effects.

Anchor it all down with kidney button Grover tuners, a PLEK-cut Corian nut, and Gibson's legendary Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece combo and you've got an instrument that's primed to do the dirty work. Each Gary Moore BFG comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case, includes owner's manual and adjustment literature, and is covered by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.

Body and Finish
The body of the Gary Moore BFG is made from a top carved from highly figured maple and a back of chambered select mahogany. This combination offers the classic tonal advantages of bright, crisp maple and warm, juicy mahogany, with enhanced resonance and reduced weight. The guitar is finished in the raw BFG process in "lemonburst" nitrocellulose.

The neck of the Gary Moore BFG is constructed from solid quarter-sawn mahogany for optimum strength and resonance, and capped with an unbound, unadorned baked maple fingerboard. Its headstock is back-angled at the traditional 17 degrees, a design point that increases string pressure in the nut slots to enhance resonance and sustain.

Pickups and Electronics
The Gary Moore BFG carries a simple complement of mismatched pickups that is tailor-made for versatile blues tones. This includes a vintage P-90 single coil pickup in the neck and PAF-style BurstBucker 3 in the bridge, which is slightly overwound for sizzling lead work. These are routed through independent volume controls, a master tone, a three-way toggle switch, and a "kill" switch for stunning muted effects.
