Gibson Les Paul Classic 2018 Ebony Guitar

Taking you back to the '60s/'70s' Les Paul golden era the 2018 rendition of the Les Paul Classic Electric Guitar gives you vintage sound with modern durability. Through a combination of vintage-style and updated technology, Gibson has captured the vibrant energy and character of a classic Les Paul, whilst exceeding the tonal demands of guitarists all over the world.


As you'd expect, the body is crafted using classic combination of two-piece mahogany that has been combined with a grade A plain maple top. The maple doesn't just look pretty either; it lends itself to a sweetly delivered high-end that allows this beauty to truly sparkle. The body protected by a smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer, which preserves that natural grain and paintwork to allow your Les Paul to age gracefully. The 2018 Les Paul Classic also bypasses any weight relief system so you get the full rock-solid power and tone of the original.


To create a confident playing feel, Gibson have fitted a single-piece mahogany neck using a solid mortise and tenon joint reinforced using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive. You can rest assured that no matter how hard you play, the neck is built with durability at its heart. Thanks to its slimtaper profile, the neck is delightfully slender and accommodating most player's hands with ease.

Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which plays home to 22 frets that are adorned with trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. Cream binding along the fingerboard ensures seamless transitions between frets, whilst the standard 12-inch radius makes it a breeze to perform smooth string bends.


To create a tonal match for the sophisticated '60s/'70s aesthetic, the Gibson 2018 Les Paul Classic Electric Guitar is equipped with a pair of P90 single coil pickups to give it the depth and warmth it deserves. The crispness of the maple rings truly, offering a snappy juxtaposition to the warm, dense mahogany.

Control over the pickups comes via the pickup independent volume and tone controls, which allow you to sculpt and shape your tone with precision. Orange Drop capacitors ensure that the slightest of adjustments is executed as smoothly as possible, putting absolute tone control in your hands.


The headstock is home to Grover's kidney style locking tuners with an impressive tuning ratio, so you can rest assured that no slipping will occur during any emphatic string bending. The strings meet the body via the ABR bridge and aluminium stop bar tailpiece. From the tuning machines down to the tailpiece, everything is designed and fitted to optimise intonation and sustain.


Each Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Classic Electric Guitar model is supplied with a classic Gibson hardshell case in brown to protect your pride and joy and an accessory kit so that you can protect and enjoy this exquisite guitar as soon as you get it home.

Absolutely thrilled with this Les Paul. Action is superb and neck is totally playable and her looks are absolutely stunning. If you like P-90 pick-up’s then this is the Les Paul for you! I have owned most top guitar models over the years but there is just something about a Gibson Les Paul.......
