Description

Details

The Gibson Les Paul Classic Electric Guitar is a combination of early 60s style with modern function. With a raft of modern appointments to complement the vintage heritage this guitar has tonal variety and bags of rock and roll credibility.

Swiss Cheese Weight Relief

The Gibson Les Paul Classic has a Mahogany body to ensure warmth of tone and sustain for days. A beautiful Maple top works fantastically well with the body to give you looks and tone to die for. This body also has Gibsons 9-Hole 'Swiss Cheese' weight relief system, originally created in the 80s. Becoming highly sought after over the years, the idea is to remove some of the excess heft of the guitar body by routing nine circular holes in the lower bout, giving less strain on your back without sacrificing the traditional feel and resonance expected of a Les Paul guitar.

Slim Taper Neck

Joined to the single cutaway body is a Slim Taper Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows blues bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and hard rock riffing aplenty. The rosewood fretboard is comfortable with 22 frets to ensure you hit every note when playing. The Acrylic Trapezoid inlays give you that classic Les Paul look whilst ensuring you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.

Brilliant Burstbuckers

The Gibson Les Paul Classic has a pair of Burstbucker 61 Zebra open-coil pickups to give you all those classic rock and blues tones utilised by legendary players the world over. The open face gives extra punch to the Burstbucker bite, lending clarity and depth of tone whether you're chicken or tremolo picking. The Volume and Tone controls give you extra tonal depth with Push/Pull pots, allowing for coil tapping, phase switching and bypassing for versatile sonic variety.

Hard-Wearing Hardware

An ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic with Aluminium Stopbar continues the theme of old school ancestry, working in conjunction with the Grover Rotomatics tuning machines to ensure the strings stay in tune, even when doing two-tone bends. Kidney Button tuning heads complement the classic aesthetic alongside the Nickel plating for all the hardware.

The Gibson Les Paul Classic has been crafted to the spec of the 60s-era Les Pauls with some modern refinements resulting in a fantastic piece of kit that will please old and new players alike. A Gibson Hard Shell case is included with this guitar to protect your pride and joy from dents and dings.
