Description

Details

Gibson began building their range of top quality guitars in the USA over six decades ago, and have since had many guitarists in awe with their extensive range of axes. The 2016 Les Paul Traditional, as the name suggests, brings this legendary model back to its origins. However, thanks to some excellent new, modern features, the 2016 counterpart has all the top qualities that first made this model hit the big time.

MAGNIFICENT BLEND OF TONEWOODS

Two essential elements in the construction of this fabled guitar come in the form of two different tonewoods, which are of course, maple and mahogany. The mahogany body has been traditionally weight-relieved which gives it a significantly lighter feel and thus makes it more comfortable to play, but the weight-relief also contributes to a warmer, deeper tone. Complementing the mahogany body is a solid AA grade figured body top, together these tonewoods work to produce an enhanced sonic resonance and a comprehensively powerful tone.

Joined to the body is a traditional mahogany neck that is shaped to a classic, rounded Les Paul profile. Married to the mahogany neck is a thicker one-piece rosewood fingerboard which is aptly decorated with accustomed Trapezoid inlays to guide you along the frets with confidence.

A MODERN TWIST ON VINTAGE PICKUPS

As we all know, the Gibson Les Paul has always been a master model of producing sweet, vintage tones, and this version continues to use the PAF (patent applied for) humbucker pickup design. The 2016 Les Paul Traditional is kitted out with ‘57 Classic humbucking pickups powered by Alnico II magnets that aid the guitar to produce soft yet juicy tones, but as soon as you increase the gain you will be greeted with a real bite, perfect for a lead guitarist. The humbucker pickups have a traditional chrome exterior made to replicate those characteristic of the 1950s.

HARDWARE AND FINISH

The 2016 Les Paul Traditional is fitted with a traditional stoptail bridge and manual tuning keys. Built with German Plek technology, this 2016 model offers the best possible string action making way for excellent playability for any guitarist out there. Just plug in and play, and enjoy the sounds of this beautiful axe.

The 2016 model is finished with a delicately hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer in a range of colours for a striking appearance as well as an authentic, vintage sound.
