With the recent release of the Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess, Alex has been hot on the promotional trail. Not only does Lifeson appear on the cover of the April 2011 issue of the Musicians Friend catalog, but there is also a interesting five-minute video interview with Alex discussing the details of the guitar.
More on the guitar from Alex:"We've been working on this for quite some time — a few years, really. The Axcess is a great platform, I think, because it has certain things that the traditional Les Paul doesn't. You know, the light weight, getting the vibrato arm on there, the changes that we made with the piezo pickups, the separate outputs — you know, it's a great utility guitar. I looked at it in terms of, 'What do I need? Instead of switching through 14 or 15 guitars during a show, how can I pare that down, like, where I can get everything — as much as I can — into one guitar?' And this is really what it is."Additional details about the guitar are available at the official Alex Lifeson Les Paul Axcess website.
Thanks to Eric from Power Windows for passing along the news.
