Hi there. Just bought #094 used.
Can anyone give some information of the series? Nothing found at the Gibson page and service gives no information.
Wanted to know whats the limitation number of the BMB VOS.

Re: Bonamassa Gibson LP BonaBurst Registry serial # "JOE B XXX"

Welcome flamehl ... and congrats on your Bonaburst #094!

Here is a little info on the BB's ... u may have seen already.

They started as a Limited Run of 25 from the Custom Shop in association with Gibson dealer Wildwood Guitars in CO, USA ... that was quickly increased to 75 ... then eventually to 100 according to published reports ... scanning this thread ... looks like JoeB 138 is documented. (I am not sure, but I believe other Gibson dealers were included once the run increased.)  (U may see a post referring to an "Aged" in the high 200's ... that I believe is referring to Joe's first Gibson CS Les Paul Sig guitar ... the Goldtop "300's" .. and post is placed in the wrong Registry Thread.

Earlier run seemed to lean more towards a plaintop ... where some of the later runs started to show some flame.

(If I find any other info ... memory kinda fading a bit ... will add to this Post.)

Best wishes with it! ...
