Over the years, there have been a vast amount of different Les Paul guitars crafted by Gibson using only the best materials. The models which originated in the 50s did not use the more exotic tonewoods that we sometimes see nowadays. In order to bring this classic model back to life with historically accurate features, the 2016 Les Paul has a plain top to provide an incredible, vintage tone in a way that only Gibson could achieve.


Despite this being a 2016 model, it incorporates significant design features that would have been found on an older model of the 50s. Gibson have carefully selected high quality plain maple for the body top in keeping with their guitar-building history. This is paired with mahogany in the body, often used in the construction of a Les Paul, contributing to the powerful sound output which is further enhanced by the plain top. It is often rare to find a Gibson Les Paul of such high calibre in a lower price bracket, but this Limited Edition model appeals to those with a smaller budget.


A mahogany neck is firmly fitted to the 2016 Les Paul Classic with the historical SlimTaper profile for faster, more comfortable playability. The SlimTaper neck first came about in the late 50s to replace the chunkier, bulkier necks of previous models. The smooth neck is accompanied by a rosewood fingerboard which offers 22 frets decorated with trapezoid inlays to guide you.


As a Classic Les Paul, it was only fitting that Gibson kitted this guitar out with '57 Classic pickups in the neck and bridge positions. The pair of '57 Classic pickups enable this 2016 Les Paul to reproduce those vintage PAF-style tones of the late 50s onwards, which have become synonymous with the Gibson Les Paul guitar. This sound is generated thanks to an Alnico II magnet, providing a warm, full-bodied response from the guitar once it's plugged into an amplifier.


The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Classic is fitted with a traditional Tune-o-Matic with stop bar tailpiece, generating an all-round better sustain and resonance from the plain top.

The headstock is fitted with Grover Green Key tuners to provide accurate, precise tuning, regardless of how hard you play.

Despite the more economical price of this limited edition Les Paul Classic, it's safe to say that Gibson have not compromised on ensuring premium materials were used effectively in the production of this superb electric guitar. To protect it for years to come, Gibson also include a hardshell case and COA.
