NAMM 2020: Besides a Tony Iommi ‘Monkey’ replica, Trini Lopez Standard and 60th Anniversary 1960 Les Paul Standard, Gibson Custom Shop has finally confirmed the existence of the long-rumored Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul - but revealed it won’t be at the show.

According to a press release, the Custom Shop is recreating the Tool guitarist’s original 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst electric guitar, but we’ll have to wait until later on in 2020 for more details on the project.
