The 2015 Sprint Run range by Gibson USA takes the Les Paul Classic right back to its roots, making it extra appealing for the more traditional guitarist. This limited edition Les Paul Classic retains many of the features that you would see in the mainline range except for two main components which are a classic Les Paul neck and traditional manual tuning keys at the headstock. There is a limited number of the Gibson 2015 Les Paul Classic Sprint Run models available so get yours here to avoid missing out!
It would be fair to point out that a Gibson Les Paul would not quite be a Les Paul if it weren’t for the sumptuous medley of mahogany and maple. This 2015 limited edition Les Paul Classic features an entirely solid mahogany body which is finished with a maple body top. Both tonewoods work together to project ultimate sustain and a wide range of tones. Seeing that the solid mahogany body is not weight-relieved like some of the mainline range models, this is likely to appeal to people who prefer a more conventional, traditional Gibson guitar.
CELEBRATED GIBSON LES PAUL NECK
Joining the solid mahogany body is a Grade A Les Paul style mahogany neck which has the rounded ‘50s form but a SlimTaper profile which is great for faster players. A 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with traditional trapezoid inlays is aboard the neck and has a sumptuous feel when it is played. The combination of the rosewood fretboard and mahogany neck produces a rich tone full of depth.
TRADITIONAL TUNING KEYS
Many of the models in the Gibson 2015 range were kitted out with the modern G FORCE tuning machine at the back of the headstock. However, many guitarists would much prefer to tune their strings manually, as such the G FORCE system is not always preferred. So much to joy of guitarists who prefer a standard tuning system, the 2015 Les Paul Studio Sprint Run instead employs the use of manual, vintage style Green tuning keys for accurate tuning integrity in any key.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
The Gibson Les Paul Classic 2015 Sprint Run is furnished with a Tune-o-Matic bridge and customary stopbar tailpiece below the ‘57 Classic pickups.
The ‘57 Classic pickups on this 2015 model are powered by Alnico magnets and they give it that well-known vintage, PAF (patent applied for) tone. With two volume, two tone knobs and a three-way pickup switch, you have full control of your guitar’s output.
This limited edition Les Paul Classic comes in a silky Seafoam Green nitrocellulose gloss finish to stand out from the crowd. This limited edition Gibson 2015 Les Paul Studio Sprint Run is perfect for a guitarist who prefers all the traditional features of old, and it would certainly make a wonderful collectible.
