"High Performance" build
The 2019 Les Paul High Performance is crafted to the same legendary single-cutaway profile that we've all come to love but has a range of features designed to make this an unbeatable model. The mahogany body has been treated to an ultra-modern weight relief rout to make it a lightweight performer without compromising on that rich energetic warmth that defines the Les Paul. Paired with this is a gorgeous AAA+ figured maple top that is protected by a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer to preserve the paintwork whilst allowing it to breathe and resonate for robust tones.
Lightning fast neck design
Connected to the body is a mahogany neck, which is shaped to the asymmetrical slimtaper profile to maximise comfort and enhance performance. The elegantly crafted fast action heel allows the Les Paul to sit snugly against your body during performances for even greater playability. The neck extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to emphasise a warm response from every note. Married to the neck is a sumptuous richlite fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically treated frets that are adorned with mother of pearl trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The compound fingerboard radius affords a natural playing position for the fretting hand from the titanium nut to the highest fret.
Enhanced pickup design
The Gibson 2019 Les Paul High Performance electric guitar is equipped with a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbuckers, with a Rhythm in the neck and a Lead Pro+ in the bridge. For coveted vintage style tones, you need look no further than this pair of beauties. Control over the pickups comes in the form of individual volume and tone controls for each, but Gibson have extended the tonal versatility of each one thanks to some enhanced electronics.
There are four push/pull pots at your disposal, as well as a DIP switch that offers over 150 reversible instant rewiring options to be explored. The result is one of the most versatile models that you can get your hands on, perfect for studio recording and/or live performances that gives your imagination the freedom to run wild!
The titanium zero-fret adjustable nut offers peerless tone control alongside faithful sustain and resilience during performances. The headstock is angled to Gibson's 17-degree standard to uphold string tension precisely. Fitted to the body is an aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge with titanium saddles, which works alongside the aluminium stop bar tailpiece to anchor each string securely. Grover locking Rotomatic tuning machines with Keystone buttons uphold tuning integrity with steadfast dedication so that you can rock out in confidence.
