Whether you're rocking out at the local or taking to the stadium stage, the 2019 Les Paul Classic combines comfortable playability with uncompromising tonal quality to produce an unbeatable partnership.

A Classic reborn
The 2019 Les Paul Classic is built using mahogany, a Gibson favourite owing to its hefty tonal energy. The LP Classic has been treated to a 9--hole rout, which takes the weight out of the body for enhanced playing comfort without compromising on the richness of tones produced. Paired with the mahogany is an understated maple top, which adds an articulate edge to the upper register. Stylish cream binding encircles the top, whilst the paintwork is protected by a resilient layer of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.
Solid and reliable neck
Joined to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to a 1960s slimtaper profile for a fast and free playing feel. The 24.75-inch scale length ensures that depth and warmth sings from every note. Married to the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with 22 frets that are decorated with acrylic trapezoid position inlays to guide your way. Thanks to traditional rolled binding along the neck, transitions between each and every fret feel smooth and seamless. The 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to execute elaborate technique with the greatest of ease.
In keeping with the classic specs of the early '60s Les Paul, the 2019 Les Paul Classic is equipped with a pair of Burstbucker '61R and '61T pickups fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The pickups have been specially wound to ensure a matched output that is delightfully smooth but brimming with enthusiasm. In addition to the standard independent volume and tone controls for each pickup, you'll find push/pull coil-taps via the volume knobs and push/pull pure bypass/phase switching via the tone pots, increasing tonal versatility significantly. Whatever style of music that you wish to tackle, the 2019 Les Paul Classic is ready and waiting to take join you every step of the way. In keeping with the '60s vibe, gold top hat controls with silver reflectors are proudly fitted to the body.
The headstock is home to Grover Rotomatic tuning machines with kidney buttons, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully and work alongside the TekToid nut to solidify stability and tension. Fitted to the body is an ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge and aluminium stopbar tailpiece, which work in partnership to anchor each string securely for optimised intonation and sustain.
