Product Description

As a throwback to the classic Les Pauls of the '50s and '60s, Gibson presents the 2013 Les Paul Traditional electric guitar, packed with vintage-style features for the modern player. This instrument preserves the sound and classy look of the original Les Paul Standard through its rounded late-'50s-style neck profile and PAF-inspired '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucking pickups, along with a figured maple top, mahogany body, and unchambered back. Whether you want your sound to be clean or gritty, the 2013 Les Paul Traditional delivers.

Time-Honored Tonewoods and Specs

Easy on the eyes and hands, the 2013 Les Paul Traditional features a carved top of solid figured maple and a solid mahogany non-weight-relieved back. You won't find any laminated pieces here; this electric guitar is made of pure wood. Its tonewood combination of mahogany and maple stays true to the traditional makeup of the original Les Paul Standard from way back when, offering players the solid feel and crisp articulation of a classic guitar.

Rounded Late '50s Neck Profile

The instrument's mahogany neck is topped with a bound rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and trapezoid inlays. Keeping things traditional, the 2013 Les Paul Traditional sports the rounded late-'50s neck shape so popular in past Les Pauls, a 24 3/4" scale length, a 1 11/16" width across the Plek-cut Corian nut, and a 12" fingerboard radius for smooth bending. Other notable features include cream body and fingerboard binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, plus gold Speed knobs with dial pointers.

Warm '57 Classic Pickups

The 2013 Les Paul Traditional's '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus pickups recall the sound of Gibson's original PAF -- Seth Lover's original humbucker design, and the company's gold standard for guitar pickups. These chrome-covered pickups are made in the style of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late '50s with Alnico II magnets, with a traditional wind in the neck position, and slightly over-wound coils in the '57 Classic Plus in the bridge position. With these dual-coil babies onboard, you get a guitar that oozes mellow warmth and clarity along with just the right amount of crunchiness for your rock-out moments.

Hear the Les Paul Traditional going from sweet to mean and back again in this zZounds video demo:


Knowing that most guitarists would want to go over the top during live performances and recording sessions, Gibson wax-potted both pickups to help avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Each pickup is routed through Orange Drop capacitors to their individual tone knobs for smooth high-end roll-off. A Tune-o-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece round out the electric guitar, providing solid sustain and accurate intonation.

Features:

- Traditional, classic look and feel: solid figured maple top and solid mahogany body without weight relief
- Gibson's rounded '50s-style neck profile
- Pair of PAF-style '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbuckers deliver vintage-style tone
- TonePros tuners keep intonation in check
- 24 3/4" scale length
- Comes with a hardshell case

Ideal for the guitarist who wants the sound and feel of an old-school Les Paul, the 2013 Les Paul Traditional is equipped with classic styling, quality tonewoods, traditional specs, powerful pickups, and more.
