One of the key ingredients in both the sound and feel of the Les Paul Traditional is its rounded-’50s profile neck. Carved from solid quarter-sawn Grade-A mahogany, this neck transfers more string resonance to the body than thin necks, while offering the ergonomic, palm-filling grip that countless players have come to love. Taking all this sweet tone from wood to wire is a 57 Classic humbucker in the neck position and an overwound 57 Classic Plus in the bridge, two of Gibson’s most popular pickups. They are designed along the lines of great vintage PAF-style humbuckers, but rounded off with some added versatility for the contemporary player, thanks to coils that are evenly wound and wax potted, giving the 57s a smooth overdriven tone and outstanding resistance to microphone feedback squeal. Keeping it all tight and singing at the body end is the classic pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece; while a dense Corian nut and Kluson-style Tone Pros tuners do their thing at the headstock. Put it all together, and it just could be the Les Paul of your dreams. Each Les Paul Traditional comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior, and includes adjustment and warranty literature, along with Gibson’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
