Gibson USA updated their stripped-down BFG Les Paul with a vibrato tailpiece and kill switch wiring.
Dubbed the Les Paul BFG With Trem, Gibson says that the guitar is, "a surprisingly powerful tool for all your rock, blues, fusion and avant-garde guitar explorations."
The Les Paul BFC With Trem features a P-90 in the neck position and a Burst Bucker 3 PAF-style humbucker in the bridge position. Both pickups are made with Alnico magnets (Alnico V in the P-90, Alnico II in the BB3), and the pair is routed through a network of independent volume controls, master tone control, three-way toggle switch, and a "kill switch" mounted in the usual upper-bout selector switch position, designed for dramatic stutter and chopper effects.
The BFC With Trem's new vibrato tailpiece is a Schaller system with self-lubricated GraphTech nut and Grover locking tuners. The guitar features a mahogany body and maple neck with a glued-in mahogany neck with "Studio" neck profile and a 22-fret rosewood fretboard.
The instrument has an MSRP of $1849 including padded gigbag.
