Written by

Sam Beattie

The Les Paul Modern represents everything that makes a Les Paul what it is – but cranked to 11. By supercharging everything from the pickups to the ergonomics, Gibson have created an extremely powerful, versatile instrument aimed squarely at cutting-edge players.

New Gibson Les Paul Modern Guitars - The Most Versatile Les Paul Around?

Key Features

  • Mahogany body/neck with Maple top & Ebony fretboard
  • Ultra-modern Weight Relief
  • Burstbucker Pro Rhythm & Pro Lead+ in the neck & bridge positions
  • Extensive switching & control options for maximum versatility
  • Tune-O-Matic bridge with Titanium saddles
  • Grover Rotomatic tuners

Body & Neck

Gibson’s renowned combination of tonewoods remains intact, giving you that signature Les Paul sound. A Mahogany double-bill ensures a rich midrange and a warm, focused low end. Add a Maple top to the mix, and you get a boost in the sparkly treble frequencies, brilliant for lead playing of all descriptions.

A notable tweak is the use of Gibson’s Ultra-Modern Weight Relief. This is their most extreme level of body chambering, providing you with a combination of broader resonance and a lighter, more ergonomic feel. Additional features like a Ebony fretboard, asymmetrical Slim Taper neck and access heel provide you with an accessible playing experience that’ll almost play itself.

Electronics & Hardware

Gibson’s Burstbucker Pro Rhythm and Pro Lead+ pickups give this guitar its distinctive yet versatile voice. Delivering plenty of power, these high-output humbuckers can handle copious amounts of gain if you want them to, with a strong mid-range that keeps them punchy and clear.

Dedicated volume and tone knobs give you plenty of control over your sound, but each control also has push-pull functionality. Coil-taps for unbelievable single-coil tones, pure tone bypass mode, out-of-phase mode – even DIP switches for tweaking the circuitry to the finest detail. Truly armed to the teeth.
