The Gibson Les Paul is one of the most iconic guitars ever put into production, with such a rich history and timeless appeal, the bar has been set pretty high. The Gibson Custom Modern Class 5 Les Paul M2M Trans Charcoal Burst is a guitar that builds on over 60 years of innovation and development and pushes ever further forward.
With a chambered Mahogany body, this Les Paul benefits from a hand-picked AAA Quilt Maple top for the ultimate tonewood partnership. It really is a stunning top, with such figuring and detail it is Artist level quality and a real statement piece. Rich and super resonant it offers premium tone and timeless aesthetics, while the Bengal Burst finish looks a million dollars and really allows the wood to breathe and the natural tone to sing through. This guitar is nice and light and doesn’t hold the kind of weight you would expect from a Les Paul, it doesn’t however compromise on tone!
The Mahogany neck is topped with a crisp Rosewood fingerboard with classic Gibson Trapezoid inlays, this guitar looks every bit the real deal. With a 24.75” scale length it retains that classic Les Paul feel. With the Gibson Apex headstock spine you benefit from enhanced stability and a greater defence against impact damage.
The defining feature of the Gibson Custom Modern Class 5 M2M is the custom wound Gibson Custom Bucker pickups. According to Gibson these are some of the most historically accurate PAF clones on the market, with an ultra-rich harmonic quality; it's as close as you can get to the classic Les Paul tone.
Perfect for collectors and player alike, this Gibson Custom Les Paul is testament to the timeless design crafted by Les Paul all those years ago.
