Gibson Announces Kirk Hammett ‘Greeny’

Gibson remakes legendary ‘Greeny’ 1959 Les Paul

Gibson announces Kirk Hammett ‘Greeny’, its first official global release and partnership with Kirk Hammett, legendary guitarist of the multi-platinum selling band, Metallica.

No other guitar has earned legendary status like “Greeny,” the magical 1959 Les Paul Standard, now owned by Kirk Hammett. For the first time ever, Gibson has collaborated with Kirk to create “Greeny” for a worldwide audience to enjoy in both a Gibson Custom Shop version, out now, and next month a Les Paul Standard version from Gibson.

The 1959 Les Paul Standard known as “Greeny” is one of the most storied instruments ever made, with a unique sound as recognizable as the guitar itself.

Untold millions have heard its tone on stage or in the studio, played by a trio of famous owners: Fleetwood Mac guitarist Peter Green, Thin Lizzy guitarist Gary Moore, and Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett.
