Gibson Les Paul Modern - Faded Pelham Blue
The Gibson Les Paul Modern is a supercharged take on the classic instrument, delivering a selection of contemporary appointments that'll appeal to the cutting edge players.
At its core, the Les Paul Modern is a true Les Paul, with its classic combination of a mahogany body topped with a carved maple cap. The body itself features Gibson's Ultra Modern weight relief in addition to a new modern contoured heel for easier access to the upper frets.
Married to the body is a mahogany neck with an asymmetrical SlimTaper shape, and when paired with the ebony fingerboard, with its compound radius profile, you are treated to a wonderful playing experience. The fingerboard is set with 22 frets medium jumbo frets and Mother of Pearl trapezoid inlays.
Gibson have also upgraded the electronics department with the Les Paul Modern. Fitted with BurstBucker Pro and BurstBucker Pro + Lead pickups and with 4 push/pull controls you have access to humbucker and fat single coil P90 sounds alongside the ability to access phase switching and pure bypass.
As for hardware, Gibson have treated the LP Modern to Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, clear top hat knobs, and the classic Nashville Tune-o-matic / Stopbar bridge and tailpiece combination.
The package comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
