Alex Lifeson 'excited about creation of custom Les Paul'
Rush star Alex Lifeson has expressed his excitement about being involved in the creation of a custom Les Paul.
He has been working with Gibson on the creation of the musical instrument and told the manufacturer's Lifestyle blog that it has taken a few years to come up with a design he is happy with.
The musician explained his aim with the Gibson Custom Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess was to create a utility guitar that means he does not have to switch between instruments when playing live.
He said he is delighted with both the playability and the sound of the new electric guitar.
"It feels great and I think the finish is beautiful. We've got a nice, dark kind of tobacco sunburst and then this beautiful royal crimson that just looks so hot. So we're really, really excited about it," Lifeson added.
Rush are set to visit the UK and Ireland in May as part of their world tour.
The band will open a run of gigs in Dublin on May 12th, going on to play arena shows in Glasgow, Sheffield, Manchester, Newcastle and Birmingham, before rounding off with a performance at the O2 Arena in London.
