Legendary electric guitar manufacturer has released a new guitar ahead of this years Musikmesse show held in Frankfurt.

Simply dubbed the Les Paul BFG with Tremelo, this new electric guitar keeps the raw power of a BFG but includes new features such as a contemporary vibrato tailpiece and killswitch.

Guitar players from around the globe have come to appreciate the Les Paul BFG for its simplicity, raw power and thundering pick-ups.

Rock incarnate, the BFG is a guitar born to riff hard and now with the introduction of a tremolo it is a powerful tool for all rock, blues, fusion and even avante garde guitar explorations.

The heart of the Les Paul BFG with Tremolo remains its ingenious combination of two of Gibson's most popular pickups of all time.

A P-90 in the neck position yields all the biting, edgy fat single-coil tones that have made this pickup a favorite since the 1940s.

In the bridge position, a BurstBucker 3 presents classic PAF-style clarity and depth, with a little extra oomph when you need it, courtesy of slightly overwound coils, which are also wax potted to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels.

Of course, a major part of the Les Paul BFG With Tremolo's appeal is the new vibrato tailpiece that gives it its name.

For tonewoods, the Les Paul BFG with Tremolo pairs the carved maple top and mahogany body that have helped to make the Les Paul legendary since 1952, while a glued-in mahogany neck with rounded "Studio" profile and a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard ensure optimum playability.

While the BFG is traditionally a no-frills model with minimal adornments, a set of genuine wood control knobs adds an extra touch of class to this guitar, and the entire package looks great in a grain-textured satin Worn Ebony finish, done in hand-sprayed nitrocellulose, naturally.

I don't know about you but we can't wait to get our hands on one!
