Returns Policy



The 2016 Les Paul Traditional High Performance model, as the name suggests, takes the best of the traditional origins that made this guitar so incredibly popular and adds new and improved high performance features to make this guitar an entirely new animal.

Superb 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 AAA 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 new 'soloist's' profile which is .828" thick at the first fret and .973" at the 12th. Married to the mahogany neck is a one-piece rosewood fingerboard which is aptly decorated with accustomed Trapezoid inlays to guide you along the frets with confidence.

Vintage Plus

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 and '57 Classic Plus 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 lead and rhythm players alike.

Upgraded hardware

The 2016 Les Paul Traditional HP is fitted with a tune-o-matic bridge complete with titanium saddles that work in harmony with the next-generation G-Force tuning system. Simply switch on and with one strum the tuning system will get you accurately tuned up for your performance!

The 2016 HP model is finished with a delicately hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer in a range of colours and will prove to be a guitar to treasure for life. Gibson have also included a hard case to protect your new lifelong 6-stringed friend.
