Gibson Les Paul Classic 2019 Gold Top Guitar
Gibson's Classic series provides players with iconic Les Paul appointments and comfortable play. This Gibson Les Paul Classic has the iconic single cutaway body, providing easy access to the higher frets. The body and neck are both crafted from rich mahogany and the body is topped with bright maple, whilst the rosewood fingerboard brings sweetness. To keep your tone in tune throughout gigs and practices, there is an ABR Tune-O-Matic bridge on-board with Grover Rotomatic tuners.
The pair of Burstbuckers help players to achieve those classic PAF tones with a modern pickup design. They have a Zebra finish which accidentally became popular in the 50s, when a Gibson supplier ran out of black pigment and they were then paired with cream coils instead. The Gibson Les Paul Classic is complete with a shimmering Gold Top finish and a cream pickguard for a classic look. It is delivered with a Gibson Hardshell case, for easy transport between studio sessions.
For those classic tones, this Les Paul is loaded with a pair of Burstbucker pickups at the bridge and neck. Gibson Burstbuckers were designed to deliver those vintage PAF tones, yet within a modern pickup. The 61 Burstbuckers had their wiring offset reversed to provide enhanced balance between the two coils. The pickups also have a Zebra appearance which began in the 50s when a Gibson supplier ran out of black pigment and used the cream coils too. This then became a new feature due to its unique and attractive appearance.
The Les Paul first entered the world in the early 1940s, when the legendary guitarist created the world's first solid body electric guitar that was known back then as 'The Log'. The Les Paul Classic's body is crafted from lightweight mahogany, delivering beautifully rich, warm tonal characteristics. The single-cutaway design provides incredible access to the upper frets, while its smooth construction ensures players receive a comfortable performance.
This Les Paul not only offers a comfortable body, but also features a Slim Taper neck profile to deliver an incredibly comfortable performance. The mahogany neck provides the ultimate comfort with its thin profile, and it allows for speedy and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany wood helps enhance the natural warmth of the body. The addition of a rosewood fingerboard adds extra sparkle to the high end.
The addition of a TekToid graphite nut offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range, perfect for creating a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities which overall benefit a guitar's tone and sustain.
The Les Paul Classic provides a stable and reliable tone with Gibson and Grover hardware. There is a vintage ABR Tune-O-Matic bridge, offering incredible string stability and a truly comfortable performance. Its high-quality construction holds onto the string tension while maximising the transfer of vibrations for an enhanced sustain. There are also Grover Rotomatic tuners on-board that keep your tone in tune throughout the night.
