Gary Moore’s 1998 Gibson Les Paul Double cut

Seen during the Live in Montreux concert in 2001 on the song The Prophet. According to the 2016 auction of the guitar, Gary also used the guitar during the studio recording of the song (Back to the Blues, 2001).

The guitar (serial number 91188401) is essentially a double-cutaway version of the standard Gibson Les Paul guitar with 24 frets and simplified controls (only one control knob for volume and tone each). The bridge pickup could be non-original, in that case likely a DiMarzio, although this is purely just a guess.
