Hey Todd,

Your change jar better be the size of a beer keg! I checked out the Les Paul BFG....looks pretty slick. Gibson did make a Gary Moore model Les Paul several years back; it was based on the Les Paul he got from Peter Green.....Green used this guitar on all the John Mayall and Fleetwood Mac albums...Gary got the guitar and owned it for many years...he sold it to a private dealer and was quite upset that what was to be a discreet sale was splashed all over the Internet. The Gary Moore model was lemon burst and based on two Les Pauls that Gary owned; the "Greeny" Les Paul and another '59 that he used quite often. The top is flamed and the body and neck binding was removed to give the guitar a more "workmanlike" vibe. It debuted in 2000 and I don't think it is in production any longer.
