Drawing inspiration from the most iconic of Les Paul era's, the late 50's, the 2018 Gibson Les Paul Traditional has a vintage heart but with all the benefits of a modern-day Gibson.
With its classic styling and traditional Grade-AA figured maple top on a solid mahogany body, this Les Paul is every bit the perfect tribute to the golden generation. Finished in a gorgeous Heritage Cherry Sunburst it looks as great as it sounds.
Alongside its timeless vintage styling the Les Paul Traditional benefits from a number of significant modern-day features; rolled binding, cryogenically treated frets and a rounded neck profile make this guitar supremely comfortable and smooth to play. A wired ABR bridge and aluminium stop bar provide a classic vintage look and deliver incredible resonance and sustain while authentic Gibson tones come courtesy of Burstbucker 1 and 2 humbuckers with handwired Orange Drop capacitors. The 2018 Gibson Les Paul Traditional has great sonic depth and those old school PAF inspired tones we all love.
Simply put it's a perfect blend of Gibson's superb history and the innovative design demanded by today's modern players.View Full Specs
