What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Black block position inlays Classic, vintage look and upgraded quality
'57 Classic humbucking pickups Vintage PAF feel; warmth, depth and distinct edge
Bound rosewood fretboard Warm rosewood tone; beautiful binding
AA-grade figured maple body Beautiful, rich wood with a deep grain
Classic design, modern appointments, timeless tone. The Les Paul Signature "T" honors the legacy of Les Paul by combining 70+ years of Les Paul innovation with modern Gibson refinements. A powerful and versatile tool for today's guitarist, the Signature "T" pairs a mahogany body with a gorgeous, carved AA-grade figured maple top for the ultimate in harmonically rich tone. Capturing the beauty of those tonewoods are a '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus pickup with smooth, creamy top end and plenty of midrange bite. Traditional Les Paul specs, Gibson USA build quality, and master craftsmanship make this a highly capable guitar, while the SlimTaper neck and traditional weight relief make the "T" a very comfortable guitar to play.

'57 Classic Pickups with Coil-Tapping

The Gibson Signature "T" comes loaded with arguably the most popular Gibson pickups on the market: the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbuckers. Typically, '57s have chrome cover plates that lend these pickups a traditional look. However, on the Gibson Les Paul Signature "T," the '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus pickups are mounted open-coil-style, for a hot-rodded and raw look. Designed and built like the famous original P.A.F. humbuckers, these '57s deliver a smooth, crisp high end, with all the juicy midrange you would expect from a modern-classic pickup.

In the bridge position, you'll find the '57 Classic Plus, with an over-wound magnet that increases its output and allows its rich lows and midrange to shine. Other refinements include a wax bath to eliminate microphonic feedback and keep your pickup pristine and clean throughout its years of service. The coolest feature by far: You can turn this humbucking pickup into a screaming single-coil with a push of a toggle switch. Coil-tapping makes the Les Paul Signature "T" capable of everything from bluesy saturation to a full-on distortion assault.

Finishes and Tonewoods

One of the highlights of this guitar is the impeccable wood selection. With a carved AA-grade solid maple top beautifully married to the select mahogany back, this Les Paul has no shortage of rich, meaty tone -- and a perfect balance of lows, mids, and highs. Traditional weight relief assures a comfortable playing experience, with just the right amount of wood reduction for the ultimate in playbility and tone. The Signature "T" is rounded off with a set of gold speed knobs, custom stamped "T" truss rod cover, and a traditional gloss lacquer. Theses high-quality finishes and appointments create a luxurious and comfortable playing experience that make any guitarist look and sound great.

Neck and Fingerboard

Fans of thin, fast necks rejoice! The Les Paul Signature "T" features Gibson's popular '60s-style SlimTaper neck profile, allowing players easy access to chords and scales that are more difficult on larger, baseball-bat-style necks. The mahogany neck is topped with a granadillo fretboard, providing warm, rich tone with an almost "bell-like" quality to the top end. The neck is rounded out with traditional trapezoid inlays and a flatter 12" fretboard radius. More than simply a collector's item, this Les Paul is a highly playable, highly capable tone machine that is rooted in the past, primed for the present, and ready for the future.

Product Description

The Les Paul Signature T wraps all of Les Paul's legendary innovation into a sweet-looking and great-sounding Les Paul that honors the memory of this legendary guitar's inventor, while providing an instrument primed for the power and versatility demanded by today's gigging guitarist.

For a blend of vintage tone and modern versatility, the Les Paul Signature T is loaded with a pair of Gibson's '57 Classic pickups, mounted open coil for a subtle hot-rod look. Both are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late 1950s, with Alnico II magnets in the neck position for plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, the '57 Classic Plus which features slightly over-wound coils for juicy crunch and wailing lead tones. Both pickups are wax potted, too, to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Both pickups feature push-pull tone controls which provide coil splitting for authentic single-coil tones.

A carved solid Grade-AA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back treated with Gibson's traditional weight relief to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance contributes superb warmth and depth. A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast '60s SlimTaper profile, and topped with a rich brown Grade-A Granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays. Traditional touches include cream body and fingerboard binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, along with gold Speed Knobs and a black bell truss-rod cover with commemorative T engraving. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24" scale length, a 1 11/16" width across the PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a 12" fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending. The innovative pairing of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality Grover locking tuners ensures smooth, accurate tuning.

- Mahogany body with Traditional weight relief

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "a gem of a guitar !!"
Sound: The Les Paul signature T has the sound of pure aural balance in tone and volume. Rolling the volume pot back a little while playing through a high gain channel helps to clean things up a bit before you crank up for the ultimate Les Paul whack. Feature: One feature that players are going to love is the coil tap feature. A lot of people love the sound of single coil pickups and the tap feature opens an entire world of new sounds. Ease of Use: easy? YES ! plug the guitar in and let the magic begin. There's no monkey play here. You never have to be concerned about getting the sound that so many others love to hear and play. Quality: Gibson is producing, what I think, is the best quality instruments of its existence. I am from Kalamazoo and I remember when the Gibson factory was on Parsons Street in Kalamazoo. I used to walk to school past the factory but little did I know that Gibson would far exceed everyone's expectations for quality and sound. Value: Gibson guitars are heirlooms. These things are always what they were meant to be, a fine quality musical instrument that will last for generations. Manufacturer Support: never had to contact Gibson for any problems but I'm familiar with the info their website has for players and fans. The Wow Factor: There's only one thing that I can think of that's more fun than playing a Les Paul guitar.......and I won't write about that. hahaha. Actually, the wow factor is huge as soon as you open the guitar case. for a better picture about what I'm saying please take a look at my unboxing video on YOUTUBE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNi9NR8U448&feature=c4-overview&list=UUE4S0qxm-eYbtmoTKkzG7LA What a cool guitar! Overall: The Gibson Les Paul signature T is one of the finest guitars you can get for les than $2K. The appointments and quality is second to none. The pickups are balanced and feature a coil tap option that gives you amazing new sigle coil sounds without the buzz or hum of the typical single coil pickup. The set neck is true and the frets sit perfectly in line. My guitar came with a perfect setup. The finish was smooth and flawless. The bottom line is the fantastic Les Paul sound that launched thousands of musical careers.
