Product Description

Crafted to the likeness of Gibson's long coveted 70s model Les Paul Deluxe, the Limited Edition Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Gold Top electric guitar packs a huge bright tone with its combination of tonewoods and a pair of mini-humbucker pickups made with AlnicoII Magnets. All wrapped in a high-gloss Goldtop nitrocellulose finish to give it the look of the best-loved rendition of the Deluxe Les Pauls of from a spectacular decade of music.

Excellent Tonewoods

To set a firm foundation for tone, Gibson USA crafts the Les Paul Deluxe with the same tonewoods used in the most beloved example of the model from the 1970s. A carved maple top is glued to a Grade-A mahogany body that is strategically chambered to both enhance tone and reduce weight. A Grade-A quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved to a comfortably rounded profile that measures .818 inches deep at the 1st fret and .963 inches at the 12th. It is capped with a premium Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and a 12 inch radius for easy choke-free bending.

Mini-Humbuckers

Gibson's legendary mini-humbucking pickups are made much like full-sized PAF-style humbuckers with genuine Alnico II magnets but with narrower coils and slightly fewer turns of wire for a sharper, more focused sound. They are perfect for cutting through a heavy band mix, while also going confidently into twangy and jangly genres that Les Pauls aren't usually thought to excel at, without sacrificing any of the depth and muscle that makes a great Les Paul what it is.

24/7/365

Each Les Paul Deluxe from Gibson USA comes with a plush-lined hardshell case, owner's manual, warranty and adjustment literature, and is covered by Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.

4 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "What I expected"
Overall: I was wanting this particular model (the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe) for many years and this was a good chance to get one.. as they have only been produced in limited runs now and then since being discontinued in '83. This is my fourth Gibson guitar and everything was exactly as I expected it to be. My original intent was to rip out the mini humbuckers and install P90's.. but ended up replacing only the bridge pickup with a fat, overwound mini humbucker which does a nice job of producing a P90-ish tone without the hum. I already own a 60's tribute LP with P90's btw. All in all.. this guitar filled a hole in my collection with plenty of class, style, and tone to spare.
Style of Music: rock , blues rock, punk rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "gibson is going downhill."
Sound: wonderful sound, rich gibson tone. perfect for blues or any other music that lets the guitars tone shine through. Quality: construction wise its perfect, cosmetically its a horror show. wavy top sanding, fish eyes, painting over dents... Overall: 2012 goldtop deluxe les paul. should have been a blemished sale. the top looks like it was sanded by a child.. it is wavy and bumpy and i can see the flaws from 20 feet away. also, while the nut was cut properly it was sanded too much after the fact and the d string pops out of the slot. i will be returning this one and trying another, i hope its better finish wise because otherwise this is a great guitar, it sounds like no other les paul and plays great.
