GIBSON Announces “Greeny” Replica, Rumored To Be Insanely Expensive

Greeny is a legend. The Les Paul Standard was originally owned by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green, then sold to former Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore, and now finally resides with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett. Gibson’s Custom Shop and Murphy Lab have now replicated Greeny in tandem with Hammett down to the smallest details of the original, and comes with the following:

  • Custom Brown Leather Case
  • Custom Pick Tin with Six Jim Dunlop® Kirk Hammett Jazz III picks (Three Green, Three Purple)
  • Custom Black Leather Strap
  • Certificate of Authenticity with a Signed Photo of Kirk Hammett by Photographer Ross Halfin

Only 50 units of the Greeny replica will be made, though purchasers also get the following experience alongside the guitar itself:

  • Gibson Custom Shop Collector’s Edition Kirk Hammett “Greeny” 1959 Les Paul Standard
  • One-of-a-kind evening with Kirk Hammett
  • Curated dinner at Nashville’s exclusive Soho House
  • Private welcome reception with Gibson’s leadership team
  • Exclusive backstage tour of Nashville’s premier guitar experience, the Gibson Garage, culminating with a tour of the Gibson Vault, the home of some of music history’s most coveted guitars
  • A commemorative gift collection from the Gibson Garage
  • Visit the Custom Shop and meet pioneering Master Luthier Tom Murphy, who, along with his team, artfully aged each Collector’s Edition guitar
  • First-class round-trip airfare for two to Nashville
  • One room overnight accommodation at the Four Seasons Hotel in Nashville
  • Certificate of Authenticity with a photo signed by Kirk Hammett

No word on how much the Greeny replica costs just yet, but the rumor is currently $50,000. So maybe start saving now. In the meantime, check it out here.
