A legendary axe with modern design features, this incredible Les Paul Classic proves there's no limit to what Gibson can do. With an overhauled Les Paul Classic design, fantastic specs, and Burstbuckers with versatile electronics, this axe is for the Les Paul lover that wants all the most modern, playable features.

Overhauled Les Paul Classic Design
This excellent Les Paul Classic is built from mahogany and topped with an elegant maple. The body is crafted with 9-hole weight relief, making it easy to handle and comfortable for all to play. It's finished in gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. The slim taper maple neck also allows for fast, smooth, fluid movements over the rosewood fretboard.

Fantastic Specs
The Les Paul Classic is built with stylish rock aesthetics and fantastic playability in mind. All the specs go towards that end. The fretboard of this Les Paul has 22 medium jumbo frets and acrylic trapezoid inlays. It's got a Graph Tech nut for smooth string movement. The bridge on this Les Paul Classic is an always solid Tune-O-Matic design with a stop bar tailpiece. It's also got gold top hat knobs with silver reflectors.

Burstbuckers with Versatile Electronics
For excellent sonic versatility, this Les Paul Modern takes the classic Gibson dual humbucker design and levels it up. It has a Burstbucker 61R (Zebra) at the neck position and a Burstbucker 61T (Zebra) at the bridge position. Both feature an open-coil, zebra design, and are calibrated for some excellent tonal power. Even more impressive, all the knobs are push/pull for additional sonic excellence. 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, skipping the tone controls and running straight from the pickup to the output jack. The other push/pull tone knob is a phase switch. Clearly this Les Paul has a lot of options for you to find your sound.

Amazing playability, tones, and finish!


This is the first Gibson I've purchased. Bought locally with the assistance of knowledgeable, helpful, and professional Sam Ash staff! Thanks! Finish: beautiful wood grain highlighted under the translucent cherry finish - absolutely no issues with finish. Beautifully bound neck matches pickguard and zebra humbuckers. Neck: 60s slim taper - very comfortable for any style (metal, rock, blues) - easy access to high frets to get your Randy Rhoads on. 12" radius gives you plenty of room for big bends. Thinner neck than the 50's standard, so choose this if you prefer a modern feel. Pickups: higher output than I expected, but the Alnico V's scream and can get sweet also. I'd say these ('BurstBucker 61R & 61T ) work well for any style (rock, metal, blues). Very good for players who use the volume controls! Roll back to get sweet cleans. Controls: a selling point to me was the "out of phase" sound you can get with the push/pull pots - Peter Green tone! Very cool option. The push/pull coil splits are also very useful - no volume drops when in use, and some nice Tele tones can be achieved. Overall, this instrument surpassed my expectations. Also stays in tune very well, and came set up with perfect, low action. Case is high quality also, which is a plus. If you don't need/want the flame top on the Standard 60's (for $499 more), get an LP Classic since it has the same pickups and neck profile. This is a great all-around LP that can do it all - I can play some old school BluesBreakers, rock out some LedZep, and get into John Sykes/Randy Rhoads style pentatonic shredding. Does it all. Never had a Gibson. The only buyer's remorse I have is that I bought several less expensive Asian imports over the years (Schecter, Epiphone, Gretsch) when I just shoulda saved and purchased a USA Gibson. It's all true - even with upgrades, no import guitar will match up to the quality and craftmanship of this LP Classic. You get what you pay for. Do it!



An excellent Les Paul!


A beautiful guitar. Plays great and sounds great. Setup was perfect. It could really stand to lose a couple of pounds (missing my R0 in that regard), but overall an excellent Les Paul, and I'm hoping it'll stick around the man cave for a while. If it wasn't for the weight, I'd give it five stars!
