With its timeless finish, classy cream binding and zebra Burstbucker pickups, this instrument will appeal to traditionalists and contemporary players alike. Expect iconic tones, and that unmistakable Gibson feel.

New Gibson Les Paul Classics - The Guitar to Revive Rock 'n' Roll?

Construction

This gorgeous guitar features Gibson’s signature tonewood combinations. A Mahogany body yields those focused lows and a rich mid-range, with the Maple top adding some crucial top-end sizzle. Weight-relieved using Gibson’s renowned 9-hole method, this subtle chambering gives the instrument more resonance and a broader frequency response.

Paired with a set Mahogany neck, this long-established type of construction gives the Les Paul its famed never-ending sustain. Adorned with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard, you can effortlessly glide up and down the neck, especially with the modern Slim Taper neck profile.

Electronics

In true LP style, the Gibson USA Les Paul Classic features a pair of potent-sounding Burstbucker humbuckers. With the 61T and 61R versions in the bridge and neck positions respectively, these powerful pickups project a strong and vibrant upper mid-range; akin to that of a traditional PAF.

Beneath the Les Paul Classic's old-school surface, there’s some seriously clever circuitry. With all controls boasting a push-pull function, the volume knobs allow you to coil-tap the humbuckers for convincing single-coil sounds. The tone knobs give you even more flexibility. One of them engages a pure bypass mode that removes the tone circuits from your signal; for a purer, unrestrained top-end. The other tone control push-pull offers a sweet out-of-phase sound, which works particularly well with clean tones.

Hardware

Gibson’s ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge provides a stable and solid feel under the right hand, with its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action or intonation. Combined with an aluminium stopbar, this resonant material enhances the Les Paul Classic’s sustain.

Grover tuners are considered by many as the industry standard, which is why the Classic has been fitted with a set of their high-quality Rotomatic tuners. Giving you precise control of your guitar’s tuning, these will also ensure great stability and reliability over time.
