Gary Moore is most often associated with playing Gibson Les Paul guitars.His main guitar in the early years was a 1959 Les Paul acquired from Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac, which he owned for more than 40 years before selling it in 2006.He did sell the guitar after almost 40 years of owning it, faced with some major financial problems.The instrument reached around $1 million when it was first auctioned in the early 2000s.The guitar is pretty much stock, except for the neck pickup magnet which has been rotated 180 degrees relative to the bridge pickup – a feature now famously known as a “Peter Green mod”.This was allegedly done accidentally in the Gibson factory when the guitar was first assembled in 1959, as was concluded by Jol Dantzig who had a chance to examine the guitar in the 80s.This mod allowed for the pickups to be the out of phase when the toggle switch is set in the middle position. While the guitar was still in Peter’s possession he removed the pickguard, and when Gary got the guitar he replaced the two bottom control knobs with the more modern “reflector” knobs – which he found more comfortable to use.Gary used this guitar as his main in the early years, and almost exclusively until the late 70s.

He grew up in east Belfast as one of five children, and left home very young as a teenager.
Gary modified this guitar by replacing original neck pickup with a white Di Marzio Super Distortion pickup, while the rest seems to be pretty much all stock.
