Rush Guitarist Alex Lifeson Unveils New Signature Guitar
Just in time for Father’s Day, Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson has partnered with Epiphone for the ultimate gift with the creation of the Alex Lifeson Epiphone Les Paul Standard Axcess model, which is available now.
Based on a Les Paul Standard, the axe comes with special modifications requested by Lifeson, including alterations to the pickups, a vibrato setup and a lightweight body that’s been sculpted so the player’s hand can access the highest frets with ease.
In addition, he has recorded two new song: “Kabul Blues” and “Spy House.”
“The introduction of the Epiphone Alex Lifeson Axcess model based on my Gibson Les Paul Axcess model has all the same attributes and characteristics that I desired so much when we originally designed it,” says Lifeson on his official YouTube channel. “The look, the sound, the playability and the utility — it’s all there for the player, at any level. I’m very proud of this guitar.”
The Alex Lifeson Epiphone Les Paul Standard Axcess guitar retails at $899. Visit Epiphone.com for more details.
