If you’ve ever watched a Rick Beato video, then you’ve seen Rick use a Les Paul Special Double Cut. So it only makes sense that Gibson has finally rolled out a Rick Beato signature Les Paul Special Double Cut, because come on – the dude deserves one at this point in his illustrious career.
“I’m excited to launch this signature guitar because it embodies all the features, I’ve loved in the Double Cuts I play along with a new thinner and more resonant body,” said Beato. “I’ve spent my life dedicated to music education. The fact that creating this instrument also allows me to raise money for the Save the Music Foundation was the final incentive I needed to be involved. This is a unique guitar that was built for a unique and timely cause. I hope you love it as much as I do.”
“Rick Beato is an inspiration to so many musicians and music lovers and we are honored to have Rick Beato join our family of signature artists,” says Beth Heidt, VP of Cultural Influence Gibson Brands-Global. “We are on a mutual mission to support music education and ensure the opportunity to experience the arts are available to all students. Save the Music is a key partner of our foundation Gibson Gives and will make sure this access is provided to young musicians. It is a very special project for all of us.”
The Rick Beato Gibson Les Paul Special Double Cut offers a double cutaway body 1.5″ thinner than normal, a Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece and dual P-90 pickups. Grab one here for $1,999.
