The Gibson 2016 Limited Les Paul Classic Plain Top Guitar in Heritage Cherry Burst harks back to the models produced by Gibson during the late '50s - arguably the finest they ever produced. As well as working tirelessly to establish the customary "Les Paul" sound that we've all come to know and love, the team at Gibson has also recaptured the look and feel of those legendary models. The Plain Top finishes are truly sublime, and the Heritage Cherry Burst is simply gorgeous.

Sleek Les Paul curves

As with the late '50's models, the top is crafted using plain maple, a sweet-sounding wood that guarantees clarity and articulation. The maple balances out the hearty midrange clout produced by the mahogany body - a combination that has endured for decades, and helped many a guitar legend to carve their career whilst shaping the musical landscape. Traditional weight relief is on hand to take the load out of the guitar, without interfering in any way with its ability to deliver enduring sustain, full-on projection tone and a solid playing feel.

Solid mahogany neck

Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the ever so comfortable slimtaper profile. Paired with the neck is a heavenly rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with acrylic trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. Cream binding has been applied to guarantee smooth transitions between frets, whilst the customary 12-inch radius guarantees string bends and fingerboard gymnastics can be executed with minimum effort.

Sweet-sounding humbuckers

The elegant finish of the plain top is matched to perfection by the luxurious tones that are produced by the pairing of a '57 Classic humbucker in the neck, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge. Designed to recreate the coveted vintage PAF pickups' tone, the '57 Classic has two balanced coils, enabling it to sing with a creamy warmth that becomes ever so brittle at high gain - perfect for laying down some smooth Blues' chops. The '57 Classic Plus is overwound to create a much more aggressive output that is fantastic for high gain crunch, whilst still retaining its brilliance and warmth - fantastic for searing solos and heavy rock riffing. Control over the pickups comes in the form of independent volume and tone controls that are accessible via the gold speed knobs. A three-way pickup selector switch is on hand for quick changes on-the-fly.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock is angled to 17 degrees to increase tension on the strings between the Grover green key tuners - which uphold tuning integrity with precision - and the Tektoid nut. The tune-o-matic bridge and lightweight stopbar tailpiece work in harmony to create a seamless connection between the strings and body, all working harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain.
