For those that want to rock hard, the Gibson Les Paul CM Limited Edition Electric Guitar in satin ebony delivers all of the core components that you need. This is a no-nonsense guitar that gives you the key elements for the best in comfort, feel and huge tone.
Rock solid construction
The Les Paul CM was designed to be played hard and deliver exceptional durability too. Gibson have used maple for both the body and neck so that you get a great lightweight experience that feels totally solid, perfect for those that can't stay still on stage.
The neck of the Les Paul CM is shaped to a rounded profile and houses an oiled rosewood fingerboard containing 22 frets and dot position inlays. The extra mass of the fingerboard also means you will get masses of sustain and unparalleled playability and feel.
To ensure that you get a tone that will cut through like a knife, the Gibson Les Paul CM Limited Edition utilises a single Zebra 61 humbucker in the bridge position. This versatile pickup utilises mismatched coils for true PAF tone! The ultra-durable wiring means that you will get maximum tone from this rocker for years to come.
G Force tuning system
The Gibson G FORCE system allows you to tune your guitar easily, and quickly. The user interface features an LED display for each string, along with a simple menu layout for rapid navigation. Basic functions include: multi-string tuning - simply press the On button, strum all the strings once, and when all LEDs are green, all six strings are tuned, or you can tune one at a time.
The G FORCE system is capable of executing many advanced functions including: saving customised tunings; adjusting individual strings rapidly; and even has a capo mode, which accurately tunes each string with reference to capo placement on the 1st to 6th frets - simply amazing!
The Gibson Les Paul CM Limited Edition Electric Guitar is quite simply the essence of rock. No nonsense, no compromise Les Paul power in an affordable unit and it even comes with a free Gibson gig bag for safe storage and transport.

Secondly, Maple, its made of maple (one piece body) and neck. maple is an expensive wood.
Pickups, not great, a china import Im guessing and I will swap these out for Seymour Duncan;s or Bare knuckles.
Not got it yet but Im guessing this needs a good setting up. good thing I have the kit to set this guitar up when it comes.
SO insane value for what you get, I was expecting plywood for the body and toy tuners but NO its a GIBSON. 500£ so I can say I own a gibson les Paul :-D
Be forewarned though, you will need to take it repair shop to get the intonation right and set it up properly, maybe the action too.
and expect to swap out the pickups.
so Id say with all the extra's added in the real cost is more like 800£ but I was willing to pay that in the beginning for this gem anyway.
Lets hope it plays good!
