The Gibson Les Paul Classic in Ebony has been a long-time favorite of those players that prefer the much loved Slim Taper Neck and Gibson's hotter humbucking pickups. Fast and easy, the slim neck is all about allowing players to get in as many notes as possible with as little fatigue as possible. Fat Neck Lover's need not apply!
The Gibson Les Paul Classic combines the early 60's style Les Paul model with some functional and time-tested modifications. As expected, the LP Classic is crafted with a mahogany back and maple top coupled with a slim taper mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard.
Burstbucker 61R & 61T zebra, open-coil pickups provide classic Gibson tones from the era with a bit of extra punch thanks to the open coils. The control assembly features 4 push-pull pots that provide choices of coil tapping, phase switching, and pure bypassing for functional and versatile sonic variety.
Gibson is back in 2020 with new leadership and the quality if already heading in the right direction! The first handful of guitars we have seen have had many of the issues addressed. Better cut nuts, even smoother frets, improved finish work, the improvements are quite obvious! We are stocking USA, Custom Shop, and Montana Made Acoustic Guitars again so make sure to stop by the shop when you get the chance to see how the NEW Gibson's stack up!
