The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus Electric Guitar in Satin Ocean Blue is crafted for both gigging guitarists and studio-based musicians who want that Les Paul feel, look, and tone with a bit of an edge. As we've come to expect from the team at Gibson, the Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus is built like a workhorse, looks stunning, plays like a dream, and sounds absolutely sublime. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to get you to the stage or studio in comfort and style.
Classic Les Paul style
Since its introduction, the Gibson Les Paul has been coveted by players across the musical spectrum due to its legendary tonal offerings. The Deluxe Player Plus adheres to the same design and build as those that have established the Les Paul legacy. The single-cutaway design affords ready-access to the neck in its entirety, and the carved to removes any obstacles from getting in your way.
The body is crafted using non-weight-relieved mahogany, which gives it a sturdy yet manageable hold in the hands, as well as establishing a warm and resounding tonal foundation. Paired with the body is an AA-grade maple top, which offers a crisp brightness that complements the mighty mahogany beautifully. The body has been treated to a slender coating of satin for protection, allowing it to age gracefully whilst ensuring the tonewoods can resonate unimpeded.
Sturdy mahogany neck
Connected to the body is a sturdy yet responsive mahogany neck, which offers the perfect playing support for laying down your chops on. Shaped to the rounded profile, the neck is smooth and sits just right in the hand. As noted, the single-cutaway of the body allows you to scale the lofty heights of the neck with ease.
Paired with the neck is a richlite fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are begging to be played. Gibson have cryogenically treated the frets to give them greater resistance to wear, giving increased consistency throughout the most demanding of performances. Acrylic trapezoid inlays guide your way in understated fashion, whilst the rolled over fret binding ensures seamless transitions for a lightning fast feel.
Gibson's Mini humbuckers
The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus Electric Guitar is equipped with a pair of Gibson's mini humbuckers, fitted in the neck and bridge positions. These beauties are designed to deliver classic Les Paul P-90-style tones - minus the hum -, and offer greater emphasis on the high-end chime with a bright and focused output. If you like your riffs punchy and your leads searing hot, then the mini humbuckers are the perfect answer.
The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus benefits from a fine selection of hardware appointments to guarantee peerless consistency every time. The body is home to a Tune-O-Matic bridge with titanium saddles for increased resilience, which is paired with a stop bar tailpiece. This unbeatable combination ensures that each string is anchored and supported to optimise intonation and sustain for notes that ring out with absolute clarity.
At the top of the neck you'll find the Tektoid nut, which pairs up with the kidney tuners to guarantee stable tuning no matter how hard you rock out. The instantly recognisable Gibson logo is proudly displayed above the "Les Paul model" decal and bell-shaped truss rod cover. If you're looking for a Les Paul that can do it all, then the Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus Electric Guitar is the stuff dreams are made of.
