Epiphone Kirk Hammett “Greeny” 1959 Les Paul Standard – Greeny Burst

Serial Number: 24021520515
Weight: 9 lbs 1 oz

The tale of “Greeny” remains steeped in enigma, yet few guitars can boast such a storied past. Renowned as one of the most distinguished original Les Paul™ Standards ever crafted, Greeny possesses a sound as distinctive as its legacy. Originally owned by Peter Green, it resonated through his tenure with Fleetwood Mac before passing into the hands of Gary Moore, who wielded it prominently for three decades with Thin Lizzy and in his solo endeavors. Currently under the stewardship of Kirk Hammett, Greeny has traversed the paths of three legendary guitarists.

One of its defining features is the out-of-phase middle switch position, achieved through the reversed magnetic polarity of the neck pickup, contributing significantly to its unique tonal character. The Epiphone Kirk Hammett “Greeny” Les Paul Standard emerges from a collaboration between Epiphone and the Gibson Custom Shop, faithfully inspired by Kirk’s revered original. This exceptional instrument offers players worldwide a chance to capture some of the magic of “Greeny” for themselves.

Crafted with premium components, including Gibson USA Greenybucker pickups with a reverse-mounted neck pickup featuring a reverse polarity magnet, the guitar also features a Switchcraft® pickup selector and 1/4″ output jack, CTS® potentiometers, Mallory™ capacitors, and Grover® Rotomatic® tuners with spade-style buttons on a Gibson-style “open book” headstock. A vintage-style brown and pink hardshell case completes the package, ensuring that this instrument arrives in style wherever its journey leads.
