  • Description

    The Gibson USA High Performance line of instruments are for those discerning modern guitarists who demand only the best in playability, performance, and style. Each instrument in this premium line from Gibson USA is offered with an unbelievable array of top-notch, high-performance features and upgrades that will cater to even the pickiest players. The Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP benefits from all of these groundbreaking HP features.

    The Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP sports a gorgeous higher-grade AAA-grade maple top over an ultra-low density mahogany back featuring Gibson's 9-hole weight relief for a lighter feel with added resonance and sustain. The beautifully-grained top is enhanced by an array of beautiful nitro lacquer finish options including Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Iced Tea, Honey Burst, Desert Burst, Light Burst, and Wine Red.

    Bringing the Les Paul to entirely new levels of playability and comfort, the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP sports a mahogany neck that features a Traditional profile with a slightly wider Soloist width than the Les Paul Traditional 2016 T. It also features an ergonomic fast-access heel that allows for unprecedented access all the way to the very last fret.  Another High Performance upgrade, the sturdy zero-fret nut gives you the ability to fine-tune your action to preference with the adjustable nut angle and string height. Instead of acrylic, the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP showcases Trapezoid fretboard inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl.

    Loaded up with a pair of '57 Classic pickups, the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP dishes out that time-tested vintage sound. To deliver all that timeless bite and growl of the most coveted pickups in history, the '57 Classic are crafted in the image of those sought-after late '50s humbuckers. Featuring Alnico II magnets and wound with plain enamel-coated wire, the neck pickup boasts a traditional wind for tons of clarity and warmth while the hotter '57 Classic Plus in the bridge position is slightly over-wound for juicy, scorching hot lead tones. The pickups are wired through a classic control compliment, featuring independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. As a part of the High Performance upgrades, the electronics also feature an upgraded sturdier, noiseless toggle switch and a gold-plated multi-contact jack for superior connection.

    The Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP also comes fully equipped with upgraded High Performance hardware including Gibson's next-generation G FORCE tuning system that offers quieter operation, better looks, and provides a smooth feel when tuning manually. It also features a traditional Tune-O-Matic bridge/stop bar tailpiece combo, but the bridge now is upgraded with strong, corrosion-resistant titanium saddles for superior tone and performance. A luxurious, durable High Performance aluminum hardshell case is included for unparalleled protection.
