The Gibson 2018 Les Paul BFG Humbuckers Electric Guitar in Worn Ebony is a straight up, no-nonsense workhorse that delivers enviable tones and plays like a dream. Gibson have done away with unnecessary adornments or finishing touches and have instead made the BFG a streamlined beauty. Each model is supplied with a padded gig bag, and accessory kit to keep your new pride and joy in pristine condition.
Classic Les Paul design
The 2018 Les Paul BFG "Humbuckers" is shaped to the classic single-cutaway body profile we've all come to know and love. The body is built using mahogany to establish that smooth mid-range energy defines the Les Paul sound. The BFG has been given an ultra-modern weight relief rout, which removes the heavy feel for greater comfort, without compromising on tonal quality or sustain. Paired with the body is a plain maple top, which results in a well-rounded output with sparkling highs to enrich clean and overdriven tones.
The stripped-back worn ebony aesthetic of the BFG gives it a raw and untamed aesthetic to encourage you to perform with wild abandon. The same arched top you'd expect to find on an LP is present and correct, and the satin finish provides a smooth feel that prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement.
Sturdy and responsive neck
Joined to the body is a supportive mahogany neck, which has been carved to a rounded profile to guarantee a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a torrified granadillo fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets minus position inlays, adding to the laid bare look. The single-cutaway body profile allows you to reach the upper frets with ease. The customary 24.75-inch scale length infuses each note with warmth, whilst the flatter 12-inch fingerboard radius ensures that elaborate technique can be laid smoothly.
The headstock is home to vintage-style keystone tuners, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision whilst you rock out. The partnership of tuners and Tektoid nut stabilises string tension to maintain the playing feel across each string throughout even the most energetic of performances. Fitted to the body is a Tune-o-Matic bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
Classic Humbuckers pickups
The Gibson 2018 Les Paul BFG Humbuckers is equipped with a pair of open-coil humbuckers, which produce an increased output with heat throughout. Whether you're laying down fat riffs, chugging through palm-mutes, performing searing leads, or dialling things back with smooth glassy cleans, these beauties can do it all. Independent volume and tone pots and a three-way pickup selector switch afford precise tone-shaping control.
