Ron Wood's Seventies Signature Guitar

Gibson has announced the Ron Wood L-5S. A spokesperson had this to say about it,

"Although we think of all the great Gibson electrics as being made in the 'golden age' of the '50s and early '60s, a few genuine classics slipped in during the years between the end of that era and the rebirth of Gibson standards a little over two decades ago. The L-5S is one such guitar: Gibson's top-tier solidbody at the time of its introduction in 1973, it has long been the favorite of Rolling Stones and Faces guitarist Ron Wood--an artist who knows a "rock star guitar" when he finds one. Updating the format to our exacting standards of 2015, Gibson Custom introduces the Ron Wood L-5S, a finely crafted artist's guitar that sounds every bit as upmarket as it looks. Distinctive features include a chambered maple body with carved top, the five-ply maple/walnut/maple L-5S neck, and iconic Les Paul Custom-style 'Tuxedo Features' such as multi-ply top and back binding, pearl block inlays, a multi-ply Custom headstock with pearl split-diamond inlay, and gold hardware throughout. Add Ronnie's choice of Burst Bucker 1 & 2 humbuckers and you're ready to rock. The first 50 guitars have been signed by Ron Wood. "
