The Gibson Les Paul Classic delivers the best of both worlds by combining early 60ís styling and form with a selection of modern appointments to deliver great take on the classic guitar.
At its core, the Les Paul Classic stays true to its roots, with the classic tonewood pairing of a mahogany body with a maple top. Gibson have treated the body to their 9-hole weight relief design which will appeal to players who want the looks and tone of a Les Paul without the weight which some may struggle with on those long gigs!
The body is married to a solid mahogany neck, which has been shaped into the SlimTaper 60s profile and is topped with a 12" radius rosewood fingerboard. The 24.75" scale, trapezoid inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets and 1.695" (43.05mm) nut width complete the traditional feel and look.
Want a Les Paul with more tonal versatility?...well, you have come to the right place as the Les Paul Classic has plenty to offer! It comes loaded with open-coil zebra Burstbucker 61R and Burstbucker 61T humbuckers, designed to deliver classic Gibson tones with added punch. In addition, the control assembly features 4 push-pull pots giving you access to coil-tapping, phase switching and pure bypassing. The range of tones on offer is wide, making for a Les Paul with tones to suit any genre.
Other appointments include the classic ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge with stopbar tailpiece, Grover Rotomatic "Kidney" tuners and aged gold top hat knobs with silver reflectors.
The package comes complete with a Gibson hard shell case.
