  • Description

    For over 35 years, guitar virtuoso Alex Lifeson from the world-renowned Canadian prog. rock band Rush has taken progressive rock guitar to all new heights. Today, Gibson Custom does the same with the instrument that we've all come to know and love over the years: the Les Paul. Gibson Custom has worked closely with the Rush axe man to create a Les Paul like no other with the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess. Standing out amongst the vast number of Les Paul variations offered throughout the years, the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess blends classic appointments and unparalleled versatility with a wide range of features that go against the grain of tradition like never before.

    The Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess employs the time-tested Les Paul tonewood combination that made the Les Paul an instant classic: a select figured maple top with a mahogany back. Setting this Les Paul apart from the rest, the back features an ergonomic belly contour that'll sit perfectly against your body as you play while the sculpted neck heel allows for superior comfort when soloing past the 16th fret. The mahogany neck is carved into a Rounded Axcess profile that'll feel great in your fretting hand while the one-piece, 12"-radius rosewood 'board houses 22 medium-jumbo frets for unsurpassed playability. Cream binding and trapezoid inlays provide that timeless Les Paul aesthetic.

    The incredibly versatile electronics and hardware are what really put the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess in a class all of its own. It comes loaded up with a pair of high output 490R and 498T humbuckers to serve up that timeless power, bite and growl you crave while push-pull Volume controls for each pickup expand your sonic flexibility by offering up series/parallel wiring options. The efficient Floyd Rose licensed trem will keep you in tune even after the most aggressive vibratos, but that's not all this high-performance piece of hardware has to offer. The vibrato unit also comes equipped with GraphTech Ghost piezo saddles that will further enhance your tonal palette with truly realistic acoustic sounds. An independent push/pull Volume control for the piezo allows you to tap into those warm, organic acoustic sounds on-the-fly. What's more? The electronics also feature dual output jacks--you can blend the sound of the piezo & magnetic pickups through the traditional output jack while the unique Life-O-Sound jack allows you to use two cables to split to stereo outputs. Whatever sound you need, the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess does it all!

    Other premium features include a Floyd Rose R4 locking nut, a set of vintage Kluson-style tuning machines with pearloid keystone buttons, nickel schaller strap locks, a bell-shaped truss rod cover bearing Lifeson's signature, and a regal Royal Crimson nitro lacquer finish. Comes complete with a Lifeson Certificate of Authenticity and a Custom Shop hardshell case that showcases Alex Lifeson's signature.
