Dave Amato Les Paul
The Dave Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard is the complete mash-up of vintage Gibson aesthetics and modern player features. It is available worldwide at Authorized Gibson Dealers.
Amato has played Les Paul guitars on stage for the last four decades. However, the American guitarist has been forced to choose between his two favorites–a ’59 Reissue and a Les Paul Axcess.
Therefore, he began a collaboration with the experts at Gibson Custom Shop to develop his “perfect” Les Paul. As a result, Gibson Custom Shop made Amato a beautiful and versatile Les Paul Axcess guitar unlike anything else available.
It also features the latest Axcess construction elements including a swept neck heel, revised back contours and an Apex headstock carve which naturally strengthens the neck.
The model is now Amato’s main guitar on tour and in the studio, representing only the best of his favorite specs.
According to Dave, his white ebony neck plays like butter, it is spectacular, and everyone loves the look and sound of it. Its color is the Boston Sunset Fade color which the Gibson Custom Shop and Amato hand-picked.
The Gibson Amato Les Paul Axcess Standard is available now for less than $5,100.
