Back in January (doesn't that seem like three lifetimes ago?) the Gibson Custom Shop confirmed that an Adam Jones Silverburst Les Paul was in the works.
Since then, we've heard little about the long-rumored and buzzed-about guitar, which is based on the Tool guitarist’s original 1979 Les Paul Custom Silverburst. Now though, Gibson has confirmed on social media that the instrument is entering production.
“Yes it’s #official,” wrote Gibson CMO Cesar Gueikian in an Instagram post featuring him posing with Jones, who's holding a finished example of the guitar.

Jones made an Instagram post of his own, captioning a photo of Silverburst body blanks at the Gibson Custom Shop with “It doesn’t get more official than this. Gibson Signature Guitars now in production!”
Frustratingly, we still have no concrete information about the guitar other than its finish, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we learn more.
