Overall, the Epiphone Joe Bonamassa "Lazarus" Les Paul is a high-quality guitar that offers classic Les Paul tone and style with a unique and striking design which recreates the vibe and aesthetic of Joe's original.

These guitars were only a limited run of around 300 pieces, and are consequently highlly sought after. This is great to add to your arsenal if you are either a collector or a gigging musician.

Please note that this guitar is second-hand, however it has been well looked after has has barely any signs of play wear and is overall in very good condition.

The guitar is completely stock, however the previous owner has polished the satin body and headstock, but has done a very good job. We personally think it looks a lot better as it has helped to make the finish pop through giving it that glossy, shiny, aesthetic.
