全球限量100支，Gibson於2009年推出的Michael Bloomfield 1959 Les Paul Aged簽名琴，由Gibson傳奇技師Tom Murphy復刻已故藍調傳奇吉他手Michael Bloomfield手中的1959 Les Paul Standard。這把傳奇的Les Paul在1974至1975年間遺失了，至今下落不明。2009年Gibson推出了複製版本，完整的再次呈現傳奇，擁有非常漂亮的Bloomfield Burst加上又粗又肥的大虎紋，一般的Aged版本已經很少見了，更別說是這麼漂亮的大虎紋Michael Bloomfield '59，Aged版本是由Gibson Custom比對上百張原琴照片，複製了原琴所有的規格、配色、零件與使用傷痕。原廠搭配一組Custom Bucker #1/#2的PAF拾音器，和原琴相同的'50 Neck Profile、Grover Kidney Tuners等。近年來的Gibson Signature Reissue Aged Model都已經不再由Tom Murphy舊化，Tom Murphy製作出來的舊化質感與細膩度是現在新款琴上都無法呈現的，在過去十年來，包括Slash、Jimmy Page、Joe Perry等，只要由Tom Murphy製作的Artist Signature Model別說是保值，有些更翻了兩三倍，把握收藏機會。
To most guitar and blues aficionados, Michael Bloomfield was more than just a renowned, big-city blues guitarist. A session player who was weaned on Chicago's legendary south side blues, Bloomfield forever altered American-based blues with his bold and passionate guitar playing. The master craftsmen at Gibson Custom have introduced the much-anticipated Michael Bloomfield VOS 1959 Les Paul Standard, an accurate re-creation of the instrument Bloomfield used to create the legendary "Bloomfield Sound."
The Michael Bloomfield VOS 1959 Les Paul Standard faithfully captures that celebrated tone, along with every precious detail of the original. Starting with the Les Paul's traditional hand-carved maple top and solid, non-weight-relieved mahogany back, this instrument is pure Gibson, right down to such time-honored appointments like CTS potentiometers and bumblebee capacitors, holly headstock veneer, Grover kidney tuners, and a rounded neck profile similar to those on the original Les Pauls from 1959.
The Michael Bloomfield VOS Les Paul is fitted with a Gibson BurstBucker 1 pickup in the neck position and BurstBucker 2 pickup in the bridge position. BurstBuckers are among the most accurate vintage "PAF" reproductions that Gibson has ever conceived, right down to the irregular windings from coil to coil and their lack of potting, 2 ingredients that contribute to an authentic late-'50s and early '60s humbucker tone.
All VOS (Vintage Original Spec) series guitars use a proprietary process that includes unique steps for staining, wet-sanding, and hand-rubbing; imparting the look of a well cared-for 40-year-old instrument. The result is a remarkable patina that will delight even the most discriminating enthusiast.
This special reissue is available in a limited release of only 200 guitars that will receive the popular VOS treatment. This signature model comes with a standard Gibson Custom case silkscreened with Bloomfield's signature and certificate of authenticity.
