This Gibson Custom NOS Ron Wood Signature L-5S in Ebony, a '70s classic spec'd out for the ultimate rock star, with a chambered maple body, five-ply neck, Matched Burst Bucker pickups, and LP Custom-style 'Tuxedo dress. Plus THIS is one of the first 50 made, which qualified it to be signed by Ron Wood, himself! This is one of the coolest signature models with thoughtful touches throughout! It's an NOS model from 2015, stored in our private collection.
Although we think of all the great Gibson electrics as being made in the “golden age” of the ’50s and early ’60s, a few genuine classics slipped in during the years between the end of that era and the rebirth of Gibson standards a little over two decades ago. The L-5S is one such guitar: Gibson’s top-tier solidbody at the time of its introduction in 1973, it has long been the favorite of Rolling Stones and Faces guitarist Ron Wood—an artist who knows a “rock star guitar” when he finds one. Updating the format to our exacting standards of 2015, Gibson Custom introduces the Ron Wood L-5S, a finely crafted artist’s guitar that sounds every bit as upmarket as it looks.
Distinctive features include a chambered maple body with carved top, the five-ply maple/walnut/maple L-5S neck, and iconic Les Paul Custom-style “Tuxedo Features” such as multi-ply top and back binding, pearl block inlays, a multi-ply Custom headstock with pearl split-diamond inlay, and gold hardware throughout. Add Ronnie’s choice of Burst Bucker 1 & 2 humbuckers and you’re ready to rock. The first 50 guitars have been signed by Ron Wood.
