The Les Paul Classic 2018 is inspired by the great Les Pauls of the '60s and '70s, and by adding features desired by the modern player they have created a real contemporary classic.
A plain maple top on a mahogany back with a cracking Ebony finish gives the true Classic look and sound. Resonant and well balanced, this Les Paul is a worthy addition to possibly the most iconic electric guitar line ever.
The solid mahogany neck has a fast and ergonomic slim-taper profile and a Rosewood fingerboard for greater sonic depth. 22 medium, cryogenically treated frets make this a really comfortable guitar, the Tektoid nut is a great touch and operates with precision. The ABR bridge and aluminium stop bar further enhance the vintage look and increases sustain.
Alternative Gibson tones come courtesy of a pair of P-90 with handwired Orange Drop capacitors. With a really unique sonic character it is versatile, dynamic and offers crystal clear note definition, sitting nicely between singlecoils and humbuckers, these P-90s are a great addition.
It's an elegant powerhouse well deserving of the Les Paul name.
Delivered in a Gibson hardshell case, it's a guitar not to be missed!View Full Specs
