Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess
In his work with Rush from the '70s to today, Alex Lifeson has redefined the boundaries of progressive rock guitar. Embodying far more than that genre label often implies, Lifeson's playing soars beyond the drama and the bluster to reveal truly stunning virtuosity that has been praised and admired by fansand playersof all stripes, and has landed him in the upper echelon of performance artists as a result. Created through extensive work with Alex Lifeson himself, the Gibson Custom Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess similarly redefines the boundaries of the classic Les Paul: packed in a single remarkable instrument, this guitar carries all of the traditional tones that have made the Les Paul legendary, along with unprecedented levels of sonic and performance versatility.

In addition to its traditional Les Paul tonewoods, the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess carries two high-output humbucking pickups with series/parallel wiring options via its push-pull volume controls, and a Floyd Rose licensed unit that not only provides the world's most efficient vibrato system, but is also loaded with GraphTech Ghost piezo bridge saddles. Access traditional Gibson magnetic humbucker tones, mix it up with fat and funky series/parallel options, tap the Ghost's realistic acoustic tones, or blend acoustic and magnetic voicesthe sky's the limit from this sonic chameleon, whose sound-shifting depths are virtually limitless. Whats more, you can route it all through a traditional mono jack (labeled Regular) using a single guitar cable, or use two cables to split your sonic trickery off into separate output paths using the Regular and the Life-O-Sound output jacks together. All this, and the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess still presents that timeless Les Paul look that has remained a classic for more than 50 years, in your choice of two stunning colors Viceroy Brown and Royal Crimsonboth approved by the artist himself, and both resplendent atop a stunningly figured maple top.
