Description:

Electric Guitar, for Epiphone Company, Nashville, 2008, Model Elitist Les Paul, expressly for Jay Jay French, with custom Pinkburst Project TKL custom case.
Estimate $3,000-4,000

When Twisted Sister re-united I asked Jim Rosenberg, the president of Epiphone, whom I got to know while managing the band Sevendust, if Epiphone would manufacture a Twisted Sister Pinkburst Les Paul to honor the 25th anniversary of our ground breaking 6 million selling album "Stay Hungry"
Jim agreed and to put something special on it so the guitar has the famous Twisted Sister bone logo on the headstock. The guitar that I'm auctioning off with this collection is one of my personal guitars that has toured the world over the last 3 years. Although the body was made overseas, the guitar was finished off in the Gibson factory in Nashville.The neck has also been adjusted using the PLEK system making the guitar especially easy to play."

Jay Jay French

This guitar features the Twisted Sister logo inlay on the headstock, Gibson-manufactured components, a long neck tenon and a solid maple top.
