The Gibson Les Paul Traditional is the powerhouse in the lineup! It's a no-nonsense Les Paul in every sense of the word is made for pure power. Whether that be soulful blues, fat sounding clean sounds or raucous rock tones. 

Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2019

Body & Neck

The body is non-weight relieved mahogany, with a gorgeous AA figured maple top and a striking cherry sunburst that'll have you transfixed from the offset. The maple top also adds a little sparkle to an already characterful sound without compromising the typical resonance you'd expect from traditional mahogany Les Pauls.

The neck features the traditional Gibson rounded profile with a luxurious 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!

Pickups & Electronics

The Burstbucker is based on the ground-breaking PAF formula, and aims to recreate the tone that put Gibson on the proverbial map. Here you've got a BB1 in the neck that perfectly compliments the rich combination of woods. In the bridge position, you have a slightly hotter BB2, designed to give you heaps of extra bite without adding any noise. The hand-wired electronics feature orange drop capacitors, famous amongst luthiers for being a crucial ingredient in truly vintage tones.


You may have also noticed the beautiful but understated nickel-plated hardware and kluson-style tuners that Gibson have opted for. The ABR bridge and stop-bar are made of aluminium, a surprisingly resonant material - combine these elements and you have a polished, authentically traditional look with stunning tonal qualities to match.
