You are looking at a Gibson Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top Electric Guitar, serial number 140087648. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 2.7 oz.)

A fitting addition to the Gibson USA's Limited Run 120th Anniversary Celebrations, the Les Paul Traditional Flame Top is a timely reminder of why we fell in love with this iconic electric guitar in the first place. Blending a traditional tonewood combination with top-of-the-line hardware and vintage-spec humbuckers, this  Les Paul has all the tone and performance of its predecessors. Combined with a beautifully figured top in your choice of three grades of flame maple--Level 3 (AA), Level 2 (AAA), Level 1 (AAA+)--and finished in a high-gloss Heritage Cherry Sunburst, the Gibson USA Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top faithfully captures the stunning look of those sought-after late '50s/early '60s Les Pauls.

For a tone that's as timeless as the instrument itself, the solid, non-weight relieved grade-A mahogany back lays beneath a captivating figured maple top that showcases cream binding. The grade-A mahogany neck is carved into the fast '60s slim taper profile and features a one-piece grade-A rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard's comfortable 12" radius and frets over binding provide a smooth fretting hand feel and amazing playability while cream binding and traditional trapezoid inlays cater to the classic Gibson aesthetic. In honor of Gibson's 120th anniversary, a the Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top carries commemorative "120th Anniversary" banner at the 12th fret.

The Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top comes fully loaded with a set of '59 Tribute pickups, new for 2014. These '59 Tribute humbuckers are crafted and designed with those coveted late '50s PAF humbuckers in mind, allowing this Les Paul to deliver the legendary tone that made those late '50s Les Pauls so desirable. Just as the originals, these pickups are made with Alnico II magnets, 42 AWG enamel-coated wire, and feature slightly mismatched coils for that classic humbucker depth and edge. Of course these pickups are routed through a traditional control complement with a volume and tone control for each pickup, Orange Drop tone caps for endless finesse and power, and a 3-way pickup selector switch.

For classic Gibson performance, sustain and tuning stability, the Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top comes equipped with a Tune-O-Matic bridge, a stopbar tailpiece and a set of TonePros Kluson tuners with a 16:1 tuning ratio. A vintage brown hardshell case wraps up this attractive package.
