Gibson and Rick Beato Launch the Rick Beato Les Paul Double Cut

Gibson and Rick Beato Launch the Rick Beato Les Paul Double Cut

Influential YouTuber Rick Beato partners with Gibson to release his new Les Paul Special Double Cut in TV Blue Mist.


Rick Beato is a record producer, songwriter, musician, and educator who is well-known for his YouTube videos on everything music; his channel has over two and a half million subscribers. Rick's new Les Paul Special Double Cut features a double cutaway body that is slightly thinner (1.5”) than normal, making it lighter and more comfortable.

The Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece ensure excellent sustain and easy intonation adjustment, while the dual P-90 pickups deliver classic Les Paul Special tones. For a distinctive look, the guitar is finished in a new satin nitrocellulose lacquer color, developed with Rick and named TV Blue Mist, and Rick’s signature is reproduced on the truss rod cover. An Original Series hardshell case is included.

Rick Beato is dedicated to music education and has pledged to donate all of his royalties from the sale of his Gibson Rick Beato Les Paul Special Double Cut to the Save The Music Foundation. At Save The Music Foundation, music is core to their national recovery and young people’s mental health. Save The Music is delivering over 15,000 instruments to over 100 school and community projects nationwide for this school year.
