Project Description

In spring of 2015 I was commissioned by producer extraordinaire Bob Rock to make a replica of Keith Richard’s handpainted late 50s Les Paul custom. We started the project with an Orville 2 pickup Les Paul custom and converted it to 3 pickup and inlaid a pearl Gibson logo. Next was an aged black nitro finish and Montreux parts.My 23 year old daughter Samantha reproduced Keith’s original artwork in acrylic paints using a variety of small brushes…I think she did an amazing job. The guitar features late 50s PAF pickups and Bob loves it, along with the 1953 goldtop and 1955 ES 295 we did for him.
