New Gibson Sully Erna Les Paul Studio Released
Godsmack’s Sully Erna gets a unique new signature Les Paul
Here's the Gibson info…
The band’s self-titled 1998 debut album went platinum five times over, and three following releases debuted consecutively at #1 on the Billboard album chart, helping the band to sell more than 15 million albums worldwide in the process.
Through it all, Sully Erna has established a look and a tone that are emblematic of heavy rock for the 21st century—an image that Gibson USA captures in spades in the new Sully Erna Godsmack Les Paul.
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.
A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in a comfortably rounded ’50s profile that measures 0.818” at the 1st fret and 0.963” at the 12th, and topped with a black bound Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and simple dot position markers, plus subtle double stars at the 12th fret. A black Corian™ nut is cut on Gibson’s PLEK for optimum precision.
It’s single ’57 Classic Plus pickup yields everything from bone-breaking crunch to eviscerating leads when used on its own, but just pop the push-pull switch on the tone control to unleash the built-in flanger circuit for instant Godsmack atmospherics.
Adding further drama to your playing, the toggle-switch on this single-pickup Les Paul is actually kill switch to mute the guitar’s output for rhythmic stutter effects.
The truss-rod cover it hot-stamped with Sully Erna’s signature, and to avoid obstructing any part of its unique finish, the Sully Erna Godsmack Les Paul comes without a pickguard.
