Dates of manufacture: 

2000 to 2002

Gibson made the Gary Moore Signature Les Paul from 2000 to 2001. It was a standard production model, with no body binding, an AA flamed maple top finished in lemon burst (inspired by Moore's Peter Green Les Paul), 1959 profile neck and an unbound rosewood fingerboard. This was the first Gibson standard production model to feature BurstBucker pickups, on this model the pickups are exposed with a reversed zeba pickup in the neck position. I believe these were wired to reproduce the out of phase wiring in Moore's Peter Green Les Paul. The truss rod cover had Gary Moore's signature engraved on it. They were supplied without a pickguard attached - although there was one included in the case (with a Gary Moore signature on it) which you could attach yourself.

At the time this was a reasonably priced signature model - selling for around $1300 new. They have since become collectible: some have sold for over $3000. This model was reissued in 2013, with some minor changes, as the Gibson Gary Moore Les Paul Standard.

Fantastic guitar, owned mine for ages. Does anyone know the exact type the burstbuckers are? In order to replace one you need to know specifics. I'm guessing the neck is - Gibson Burstbucker Type 1 Pickup, Zebra
