Gibson Les Paul Classic 2018 Pelham Blue Guitar
What We Think
What a tone master this guitar is! Not only does it looks amazing in the Pelham Blue finish but it sounds amazing as well. The Gibson P90 pickups on this guitar sound so good! They are great on either a clean sounding amp or a distorted amp. The neck on this guitar and playability make this guitar the complete package. If you haven’t played on of these guitars yet you should, I am sure you’ll be impressed. We are lucky enough to have one here at Rimmers Music in Bolton, so come on down and have a go for yourself. The guitar also comes with a Gibson Hardcase as well.
