Classic Design in a Stripped-Down Package

The LPJ Les Paul starts with the essence of the Les Paul guitar: a weight-relieved mahogany body and carved maple top. To make those classic tonewoods really sing, a '50s profile maple neck is set into the body for exceptional tonal clarity and sustain. The rosewood fretboard with traditional trapezoid inlays looks beautiful and is easy to play, thanks to the medium-jumbo frets set in perfect balance with the PLEK-cut Corian nut. The LPJ Les Paul's body is coated in a unique, rough-worn finish, giving the LPJ Les Paul a serious rock and roll vibe.

Legendary Gibson Humbucker Tone

With Gibson's Modern Classics 490R and 498T humbucking pickups loaded into the Gibson LPJ, you get a complete tonal arsenal. The 490R in the neck position is made with an Alnico II magnet that is standard-wound for tonal clarity and plenty of punchy dynamics. The 498T in the bridge has an over-wound Alnico V magnet with a crisp attack that's perfect for lead or rhythm playing. For a modern look, these classic PAF-style pickups are enclosed in a black plastic covering. These pickups can more than cover an entire range of tones and styles, making the Gibson LPJ Les Paul an electric guitar you'll want to take with to every gig.

Classic Hardware

The Gibson LPJ is topped off with a chrome Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop bar tail piece, vintage-style tuners with black keys and a 16:1 tuning ratio for easy and accurate tuning, independent volume and tone controls for each pickup decked out in Gibson's Black speed knobs, and a classic "LPJ" engraved truss rod cover. If you are looking for an affordable Les Paul with a vibe, tone, and playability that can hold its own against guitars twice as expensive, then the Gibson LPJ Les Paul is the guitar for you.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The WOW in WOW"
Overall: Cannot believe someone can now own a TRUE Les Paul for under $1000 of this quality. I do not believe Gibson can continue selling these for this cheap for long. Great setup from the box, all I did was lower the bridge a little and tune. I bought the Chocolate Brown and it seems to be made of 2 pieces of wood both carved top and body, sounds great to me and stayed in tune as I played it. I bought an Epi Les Paul case with mine, the Gig bag is actualy nice as well. back to the guitar, it is made of all good materials all it is lacking is the finsih and crome/gold thrills...Mine is heavy, it is not carved out and maybe weighs 9 pounds or possibly more ... Pickups ROCK a clean to a dirty growl...The tone controls are also smooth and mellows out the harsh treble sounds...I don't like the truss rod cover and ordered one with a Les Paul logo...this thing equals any Fender Standard I own in quality and even sound...dont buy a copy, get the real thing before a possible price height or a discontinue of manufacture of Guitar ....The guitar is a really nice looking guitar and feels great and a dream to play...good frets intonation on spot....THIS IS A LES PAUL

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Gibson LPG Les Paul (rubbed white)"
Overall: Just treated myself to Gibson LPG Les Paul. Looked everywhere for the best price and nobody could touch zZounds. They beat all competitors by a long shot. Guitar arrived in perfect condition in a matter of days. The guitar itself is amazing, particularly at this price. I own many high-end guitars and this one holds it's ground. Stays in tune, looks great and plays like a beast. There's nothing in this price range with this quality that I'm aware of. Do yourself a favor and buy one for $500 from zZounds.
Style of Music: Classic rock, alternative
