Leroy Parnell Signature Les Paul 57 Gold Top

Country music artist Lee Roy Parnell gave us this insightful rundown of his Gibson Custom Shop signature Goldtop Les Paul at NAMM 2012. Revered for his killer slide playing, Lee Roy explains what modifications and tweaks have helped him to get his sound. These include a “Player’s Cut” 7 degree heel for easy access to higher fret positions, Ron Ellis humbuckers, and “Big Block” pickup cavity design. Thanks Lee Roy!

This is the Lee Roy Parnell '57 Les Paul Goldtop, a collaboration between the Custom Shop and Parnell to create an instrument suited exactly to the established Nashville singer/songwriters needs This Goldtop takes the usual specs of the '57 Les Paul and twists them around a bit to create a playability very unique to this instrument, including a satin finish to the neck with a 7 degree cutaway on the neck heel for comfortable playing up high on the neck. The guitar is loaded with Ron Ellis custom-wound humbuckers and 1960 NOS capacitors at Parnell's request, and topped off with a very cool black stinger headstock finish to top off the looks of this fine signature instrument.

Guitar Story

It is with great excitement that Wildwood welcomes the weapon of choice for world renowned slide-ace and hit songwriter, Lee Roy Parnell. Featuring a smooth as silk satin neck with a fantastically comfortable and slightly asymmetrical neck shape with a stinger and a beautiful killer motif!! The Lee Roy Parnell Les Paul has a marginally deeper and beveled cutaway and contoured neck heel that is curved to fit your hand like a glove, but still have the meat and anchor of a traditional Paul. Gorgeously warm and balanced Ron Ellis pickups, with even and buttery lows, a relaxed midrange and moderate compression on the attack.

The Lee Roy Parnell guitar offers a unique and creative design that Gibson has never offered before. It is a great concept that allows the pickup to lay on the wood in the pickup cavity. The reason Lee Roy lowers his pickups farther down is to get more of a “woody tone” and to make more of a connection with the wood. The pickups are still adjustable to the height you desire. The credit for the design goes to Phillip Whorton in collaboration with Lee Roy Parnell and the Custom shop for designing this. Yet another great idea from the innovators at Gibson Custom shop.
