Gibson LPJ Les Paul Electric Guitar
Gibson has taken the most essential features of the Gibson Les Paul and created a stripped-down, no-frills guitar that plays like its more expensive brothers and sounds like no other: the Gibson LPJ Les Paul. How was Gibson able to do this? The Gibson LPJ Les Paul is made with the same guts and style as the Les Paul you know and love, but with enough unique features to create a wholly original solid-body electric guitar.

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.
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.
