The incredible Jason Momoa has seized the final Gibson Custom Shop Collector’s Edition Kirk Hammett “Greeny” 1959 Les Paul Standard, a faithful replica of the iconic instrument that was graced by three major guitarists throughout history.
Described by Gibson as “one of the most iconic original Les Paul standards ever made,” “Greeny” was initially owned by Fleetwood Mac’s Peter Green and used in his time with the band. It was later sold to Gary Moore, its custodian for three decades with Thin Lizzy and as a solo artist. The historic guitar is now in possession of Metallica‘s Kirk Hammett.
