The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Faded HP Electric Guitar combines everything that the Les Paul is known for and is equal parts tradition and innovation. Shaped to the instantly recognisable single-cutaway profile we've all come to know and love, the 2017 Les Paul Faded HP is a stripped back affair that is undeniably cool. Not only that, but with an electronics setup that is designed with tonal versatility at the fore, this is the perfect model for those who want uncompromising tone in model that is good to go straight out of the box.

Classic Les Paul design

The 2017 Les Paul Faded HP takes on the classic tonewood partnership of its predecessors, with a solid mahogany back that is combined with a crisp maple top. The combination of mahogany/maple creates a sweetly balanced tone that brings together a meaty midrange energy combined with a crisp and articulate high-end clarity.

Care has been taken to maximise playing comfort, with this in mind Gibson has treated the body to ultra-modern weight relief, which takes out the back breaking effort of performing with the Les Paul, without compromising on tone or sustain. As previously stated, the faded look may offer a less polished finish than that of pricier models, but it is in no way less eye catching. With a healthy lacquer to finish the job, your Les Paul finish will develop and evolve the more you play the guitar.

Sturdy and responsive neck

Fitted to the body is a solid maple neck, which has been treated to a slim taper profile to lend its support in creating the most comfortable playing experience. Married to the body is a sublime rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to aid in your navigation. The single-cutaway body profile allows you to reach the upper frets with ease.

Improved G-FORCE auto-tuning

Gibson has equipped the 2017 Les Paul Faded HP with an updated version of their G-FORCE auto-tuning system. This sits at the back of the headstock, and gives you access to alternate tunings and adjustment with greater speed and accuracy.

Stage-ready hardware

Fitted to the body is an aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with titanium saddles and locking thumbwheels, as well as an aluminium stop bar tailpiece with locking studs. The bridge and tailpiece work together harmoniously to optimise intonation and sustain by creating a seamless connection between strings and body. The addition of titanium saddles increases durability and endurance during epic performances.

Upgraded electronics

The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Faded HP Electric Guitar is equipped with 61R and 61T humbuckers, which are designed to recreate the legendary PAF-inspired tones that cemented the Les Paul's place in history. Offering smooth, creamy warmth that can be switch up to a white hot and searing brightness, the pickups give you a wealth of tones to play with.

Control over the pickups comes via independent volume and tone pots for each pickup, as well as a three-way selector switch. Finished in chrome, the knurled knobs and toggle switch offer a stark counterpoint against the faded body finish.

Included Accessories

To complete the package, the Gibson 2017 Les Paul Faded HP Electric Guitar is supplied with a padded gig bag to protect your new pride and joy, as well as get you out on the road asap. Each model also comes with a strap and polishing cloth, as well as a truss rod wrench and adjustment wrench to help keep your new guitar in pristine condition.
