Gibson Gibson Les Paul Traditional (2018)


Body & Neck

The body is dense mahogany and non-weight relieved, with a gorgeous AA figured maple top that'll have you transfixed from the offset. The maple top also adds a little sparkle to an already characterful sound without compromising the typical resonance you'd expect from traditional mahogany Les Pauls.
The neck features the traditional Gibson rounded profile with a luxurious rosewood fretboard. The use of mahogany in both the neck and the body is what gives these guitars their famed neverending sustain - every note sings like you wouldn't believe!

 Pickups & Electronics

The Burstbucker is based on the ground-breaking PAF formula, and aims to recreate the tone that put Gibson on the proverbial map. Here you've got a BB1 in the neck that perfectly compliments the rich combination of woods. In the bridge you have a slightly hotter BB2, designed to give you heaps of extra bite without adding any noise. The hand-wired electronics feature orange drop capacitors, famous amongst luthiers for being a crucial ingredient in truly vintage tones.


You may have also noticed the beautiful but understated nickel-plated hardware and kluson-style tuners that Gibson have opted for. The ABR bridge and stop-bar are made of aluminium, a surprisingly resonant material - combine these elements and you have a polished, authentically traditional look with stunning tonal qualities to match.

Here's what Gibson say about the 2018 Les Paul Traditional

The Les Paul guitar that established the legend, with the power, look, and feel of the world’s most desirable dual-humbucker electric guitar. The Les Paul Traditional retains the archetypal feel of the vintage Les Paul guitars in its rounded neck profile, solid rosewood fingerboard and non-weight relieved body.
Traditional looks are complemented by the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany body and AA figured maple top, vintage style tuners and ABR bridge and nickel-plated hardware. Classic PAF tones are enhanced by handwired electronics including Orange Drop capacitors.
