Multi-platinum selling and four-time-Grammy Award-winning guitarist Adam Jones from the band TOOL is one of rock’s most talented and sonically innovative guitarists. The new Adam Jones Les Paul Standard from Gibson USA is a new take on Adam‘s No. 1 guitar, his prized original Silverburst 1979 Gibson Les Paul.
The new Adam Jones Les Paul Standard from Gibson USA pays tribute to what Adam calls “one of my top favorite guitars of all time.” Fans can see Adam and his Les Paul Standard on stage during the world tour for TOOL‘s blockbuster “Fear Inoculum” album. Finished in Antique Silverburst, Adam‘s new Les Paul Standard has an ebony fretboard with mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays and Grover Rotomatic tuners with contemporary style buttons. It comes equipped with a chrome-covered Burstbucker one in the neck position and an uncovered DC High Gain Humbucker in the bridge position. The controls are hand-wired with Orange Drop capacitors. The Adam Jones Les Paul Standard features Adam‘s signature on the truss rod cover and custom Adam Jones artwork on the back of the headstock and comes with a modern hardshell case.
One of the rock’s most talented artists, Jones is also known for his work as a visual artist sculptor, videographer, producer, and special effects designer (“Jurassic Park”, “Terminator 2”, “Edward Scissorhands”, “Ghostbusters 2”, “Batman 2”, “A Nightmare On Elm Street”). Adam was heavily involved in recreating the new guitar, working with Gibson‘s luthiers in Nashville, Tennessee. Utilizing his extensive experience in visual art, special effects and design, Adam Jones is both the director of the majority of TOOL‘s music videos and creates the visual experience on stage for the band. For the world premiere of the recent Gibson Custom Shop Adam Jones Les Paul Custom, Adam composed and scored a new song “The Witness” and created a special animated short film to the song. Watch below and share the song and film “The Witness,” streaming now on Gibson TV.
