A revamped version of the classic Les Paul, the Modern seamlessly combines definitive Les Paul elements with new innovations to create a modern electric monster. This guitar features a maple on mahogany Les Paul body, exceedingly playable specs, and dual Burstbuckers with coil-tapping capability, pure bypass, and phase switching. The Les Paul Modern is made for the player who loves the Les Paul and wants to take advantage of all the progressive design features that have come forth since its inception.

Maple on Mahogany Les Paul Body
This Les Paul modern has a mahogany body with maple top, showcasing a beautiful wood grain and giving it excellent sonic qualities. The body is made with ultra-modern weight relief, making it comfortable for anyone. Even more resonance and sustain is afforded by the mahogany neck, set into the body with a new modern contoured heel.

Exceedingly Playable Specs
This Les Paul Modern has some very cool specs that make it as playable as ever. It boasts a compound radius, genuine ebony fingerboard on top of an asymmetrical slim taper neck. The combination provides excellent playability, no matter your style. The mother-of-pearl trapezoid inlays add that classic Gibson flare. The bridge is a Nashville Tune-O-Matic with a stop bar tailpiece. Coupled with Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners with keystone buttons, this guitar will stay tightly in tune when you're rockin' out.

Dual Burstbuckers with Coil-Tapping Capability
For outstanding sonic versatility, this Les Paul Modern takes the classic Gibson dual humbucker design and levels it up. There's a Burstbucker Pro Rhythm pickup at the neck with a Burstbucker Pro + Lead at the bridge. Both are calibrated for some excellent tonal power. Even more impressive, all the knobs are push/pull for additional sonic brilliance. The two volume knobs are push/pull and engage a coil-tapping feature, giving each blazing hot humbucker a sweet P-90 style single-coil sound. One tone knob puts the bridge pickup in pure bypass mode, running straight from the pickup to the output jack. The other push/pull tone knob is a phase switch. Clearly the Les Paul Modern has a lot of options for you to find your sound.

Gibson Hit a Home Run With This Guitar!


I've been a long time Gibson fan and have owned several over the years. I've held on to the good ones and have gotten rid of the rest. Gibson has been known to have their quality control issues for quite a while now and being that I'm an online buyer I was reluctant to pull the trigger on this one. But…I heard that Gibson was under new management and I'm also a sucker for an ebony fretboard, MOP inlays and locking tuners...so I pulled the trigger! Let me say that this one is an absolute keeper! The fit and finish is perfect except for a dull spot on the finish under the pickguard nut/pad (this is from putting the guard on when the finish hasn't cured all the way), the binding is flush with the side of the of the body around the entire guitar (a common problem from routing the binding channel too deep), and the frets edges are finished smooth even in the higher register. I love everything about this guitar, the sparkle finish of the Graphite color top (it's shows but is not over done), the pickups sound great and have the switching capabilities for any style of music, the bypass switch is super cool as it takes you from whatever pickup/coil tap combination you're in at the time right back to a straight bridge pickup, and the neck feels good and natural at any place along the fretboard. If I had to say something negative about the guitar, I would say that they didn't do a great job on their intention of the "new modern contoured heel" because it still has a blocky corner at the neck joint, but as a Gibson owner I am accustomed to blocky heels so I really doesn't bother me. First time buying a guitar from Sam Ash and it was set up perfectly and was immediately playable. The tech that set this up knew what he was doing! You have a repeat customer here!!

Great Sam Ash service team!


I love everything about this guitar. Great look, feel and sound. A quality instrument at a good price.



Another hit for Gibson


This is a very versatile guitar if your looking for a guitar that can do it all. The push pull pots that split the coils give some great single coil/P90 sounds. You also get a great out of phase tones. Build quality is as good as anybody else and I cannot find any flaws.



Best Present Ever


This was a gift for my husband, and he absolutely loves it. He hasn't stopped showing it off and raving about the clear sound to all of his buddies.



Epic Amazingness!!! Crying with Joy


I generally suck at guitar, but this guitar makes me sound good. WOW! Don't even need to practice anymore. Just spend more and more money.



I would by this guitar again!


Supper nice Les Paul, plays great!
