We first got a glimpse of the new signature Gibson electric guitar from Lukas Nelson - who plays with Promise of the Real, Neil Young and Willie Nelson & Family - earlier this year. Now the company has officially announced the Gibson Lukas Nelson ’56 Les Paul Junior.

The customized model was inspired by Nelson’s own ‘56 Junior, and features a single-cutaway slab mahogany body, fat ‘50s-style mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays and medium jumbo frets.
