A look at the work of Gibson''s inaugural Artist in Residence.
New York City Special Les Paul
The New York Special Les Paul is the first work produced as part of the Gibson Custom Artist in Residence program. Inspired by Willis' love of the Manhattan skyline and the water towers hidden within, the New York City Special features hand-carved wood, inlaid copper, and acrylic painting. The copper hardware is untreated so it will wear naturally with time.
