Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Classic in Ebony

Description

Every bit a classic instrument, this particular Les Paul embodies everything that gave them their reputation back in the day. A truly timeless design that you'll be powerless to resist!

Body & Neck

The body is a non weight-relieved combination of mahogany and plain maple, giving this guitar a little added top-end clarity without compromising the typical resonance you'd expect from traditional mahogany Les Pauls. Top if off with a beautifully slick Ebony finish against pristine white binding, you'll be spellbound at first sight!

For the neck, you'll notice that the Classic is a dream to play thanks to a slim-taper profile and its velvety-smooth rosewood fretboard. The use of mahogany in both the neck and the body is what gives these guitars their famed neverending sustain - every note sings like you wouldn't believe!

Pickups & Electronics

You may have noticed that several of the 2018 models are loaded with P90s. An old-school design, the P90 was designed to strike the perfect balance between traditional single-coils and humbuckers, giving you brilliant clarity and a thick, articulate low-end all in one - the Les Paul Classic is no exception.

Hardware

Opting for a chrome look all round to compliment the suave Ebony finish, the ABR Bridge and aluminium stop-bar have surprisingly resonant qualities to boot. Kidney Grover tuners and black speed knobs polish off the Classic vibe - this might just be the slickest guitar you've ever played!

Here's what Gibson say about the 2018 Les Paul Classic

The Les Paul Classic guitar conveys major elements of the iconic Les Paul look with the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany-and-maple non-weight relief body, bound body top and fingerboard with trapezoid fingerboard inlays. Fast and comfortable playability is increased with a Slim Taper neck. Additional appointments include a pair of P-90 pickups, ABR bridge, nickel-plated hardware, and hand-wired electronics including Orange Drop capacitors.
