The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Traditional T Electric Guitar is a beautiful rendition of the legendary model's revered late '50s siblings. Taking on the sophisticated single-cutaway style, but including modern-era appointments, the 2017 Les Paul Traditional T is a dream come true for purists who are seeking a no nonsense model that sounds as good as it looks.
Classic Les Paul design
In keeping with its predecessors, the 2017 Traditional T adheres strictly to the non-weight relieved Les Paul body design, giving it a weighty feel with a resilient sustain. The tonewood partnership here features a two-piece mahogany back, which is paired with an AA grade maple top. The finish has been treated to a slender yet durable layer of smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer to protect against premature wear.
Classic rounded neck
Fitted to the body via a classic mortis and tenon joint is the single-piece mahogany neck. Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive has been tasked with reinforcing the neck joint to maximise stability and strength. In keeping with the traditional approach, the neck has been shaped to the rounded profile, which gives the neck a more substantial feel in the hand.
Married to the neck is a sublime 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard has been increased in thickness, which makes it ideal for those who like to flex their playing muscles. Cream binding traces along the edge of the fingerboard to create seamless transitions between frets.
Resilient, stage-ready hardware
At the top of the neck you'll find the nylon nut, which continues the nod to the Les Paul's heritage whilst guaranteeing exceptional tone, sustain and durability. The headstock is angled to Gibson's customary 17-degrees to improve tuning stability and string tension, whilst the Gibson logo is proudly on display for all to see. The nickel-plated zamak vintage-style keystone tuning machines boast an impressive 14:01 tuning ratio, firmly securing your strings during each and every performance as you rock out.
The body is home to the aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with titanium saddles and locking thumbwheels, which is paired with an aluminium stop bar with locking studs. The bridge and tailpiece partnership works dutifully to ensure intonation and sustain is optimised so that your Les Paul sings beautifully, and with the richness it deserves.
Burstbucker 2 and 3+ humbucker pickups
The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Traditional T Electric Guitar has been fitted with a Burstbucker 1 and 2 humbuckers, fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The Alnico II-powered Burstbuckers translate the richness of the body tonewoods, and the articulation of the neck and fingerboard construction with impeccable clarity. Control over the pickups comes in the form of classic gold Top Hat knobs, which complement the stunning finish beautifully.Included Accessories
