The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Signature Player Plus Electric Guitar is designed for those who need a model that can easily handle the demands of life on the road, whilst sitting just as comfortably in a studio environment. Built to the same uncompromising standards of quality we've come to expect from Gibson, you can rest assured that the high-performance feel flows throughout this awesome guitar. To put your mind at ease, the Les Paul Signature Player Plus is supplied with a hardshell case to get you to any gig in style.
Solid Les Paul build
The body is shaped to the legendary single-cutaway profile of the Les Paul, a design that has become synonymous with providing outstanding quality and a lifetime of enjoyment. Rock 'n' roll royalty have turned to the Les Paul for tireless inspiration for decades, and the Les Paul Signature Player Plus captures the glory for you to embrace and wield.
Constructed using a classic tonewood combination, the back is built using mahogany and the top from AA-grade maple, a partnership that establishes a warm tonal foundation with crisp highs that cut through effortlessly. The lack of weight relief means that the body feels just as a Les Paul should, whilst producing sustain that rings out for days. The beautiful paintwork is protected by a slender yet resilient layer of satin to enable the tonewood to age gracefully and resonate freely.
Durable and playable neck
Fitted to the body is a gorgeous mahogany neck, which is shaped to the rounded profile to give it a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a richlite fingerboard with cryogenically treated frets, which results in a much more stable playing experience thanks to increased resistance to wear. Acrylic trapezoid inlays guide your way along each of the 22 frets at your disposal, whilst the rolled over fret binding ensures seamless transitions between each and every fret.
Burstbucker Pro humbuckers
The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Signature Player Plus Electric Guitar boasts a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbuckers, with Rhythm and Lead models fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The BB Pros deliver a sweet sonic offering, which harnesses the classic Les Paul character with plenty of bite and punch to give you a vibrant output. Whatever style of music you are taking on, these beauties can be as versatile as you need them to be.
The Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Signature Player Plus is kitted out with the finest appointments to maintain consistency throughout the most demanding of performances. The body is home to a Tune-O-Matic bridge with titanium saddles, which is paired with a stop bar tailpiece to create an anchored and supportive hold as you play. The result is flawless intonation and a generous sustain that allows the guitar to sing.
The headstock is home to kidney tuning machines, which hold each string firmly so that you can perform string bends until the cows come home, without dropping out of tune. The unmistakeable Gibson logo resides at the top of the headstock, with the "Les Paul model" decal sitting just above the classic bell-shaped truss rod cover. The result is a classic model with an undeniably modern vibe, perfect for all players to take advantage of.
