Gibson working on Billy Gibbons Les Paul

Legendary axeman Billy Gibbons, of ZZ Top fame, is said to be working on a limited edition version of his Gibson 1959 Pearly Gates electric guitar.

The US-based instrument manufacturing firm has confirmed that the rock idol - a Gibson artist for more than four decades - has been working on the new guitar for a number of weeks, alongside vendors, with production numbers of the guitar set to be limited.

Although further details have not yet been released, the guitar will be a Les Paul model - originally designed by Ted McCarty and both named and used by jazz guitarist Les Paul.

Gibbons will be showcasing his guitar skills in England later this year as ZZ Top head to Download Festival at Donington Park, Leicestershire on June 6th.

The appearance is the band's only UK date before they begin a summer tour across America with fellow hard rock superstars Aerosmith.
