The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Traditional T -- A Classic Redefined

Gibson's 2016 Les Paul Traditional T electric guitar utilizes the same mahogany/maple tonewood combo that launched Les Paul into stardom back in the mid '50s, with a carved figured maple top to sweeten the deal. A pair of '57 Classic Alnico II humbuckers deliver that iconic PAF tone, and dual volume and tone dials give you greater control over your output. Gibson's modern weight-relief design allows you to move around on stage without the heavy feel that mahogany bodies tend to have. The mahogany neck on this beauty features 22 frets over a smooth dark rose fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays. It all adds up to a beautiful Les Paul that you'll treasure for decades to come.

Learn more about the Les Paul Traditional T in this overview demo:


Maple and Mahogany Les Paul Body

Maple and mahogany are a great pair for generating a well-balanced resonance with plenty of depth and just the right amount of chime. Mahogany pushes the lows and mids while maple brings in the high end. Shouldering a dense and heavy mahogany body can get tiring, especially after a long set. That's why your Les Paul Traditional T features Gibson's modern weight-relief design so you can keep playing without any fatigue building up throughout your set.

Irresistible PAF Tone

Aside from their iconic look and addicting playability, Les Pauls are often sought after for their hot and biting PAF-infused tone. The '57 Classic in the neck position utilizes a traditional wind to generate a clear and warm output while the '57 Classic Plus at the bridge features an over-wound design to enhance your leads and riffs. Both pickups pack a powerful sonic punch and keep your performance sounding solid note after note.

Mahogany Neck in '50s Rounded Profile

Spanning 22 frets in length is your Les Paul Traditional T's quartersawn mahogany neck. This melodious appendage features a silky-smooth rosewood fingerboard, set with stylish traditional acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays. Each fret boasts a comfortable action, and the '50s rounded profile offers a slightly bulkier feel than the slim '60s profile, yet it still rests comfortably in your hand as you play.

Gibson 2016 Les Paul Traditional T

The Les Paul Traditional 2016 T's foundation is the same traditional tonewood combination that helped make the Les Paul a legend when it was introduced six decades ago. A beautifully carved solid Grade-AA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while the solid mahogany back with traditional weight relief contributes superb warmth and depth.

Pure vintage-voiced tone with a contemporary edge comes courtesy of Gibson's '57 Classic(TM) pickups with traditional chrome covers, made in the image of the hallowed late 1950s PAF humbucker with Alnico II magnets. A traditional wind in the neck position provides plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, slightly over-wound coils in the '57 Classic Plus(TM) offer juicy crunch and wailing lead tones.

Features:

- Preserves the classic Les Paul tone, improves playing comfort, and enhances the guitar's resonance
- Efficient performance with a vintage look
- The original Les Paul neck width retains the playing feel that launched a thousand hits
- Accurate return-to-pitch with heavy string bending - and great sustain - thanks to the dense, self-lubricating nut
- The classic look and feel you know and love
- The original Les Paul case style, now with enhanced protection
- Stylish traditional inlays reflect this iconic guitar's original look
- Seminal tone and feel, with increased sustain
- Expert setup makes this handcrafted, American-made guitar ready for immediate action
- Powered by Alnico magnets and wound with plain enamel-coated wire, these humbuckers capture hallowed PAF-inspired tone

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Ballsy Les Paul"
Overall: Rock solid Les Paul. Everything about it is great. Pickups are very responsive to where you're at on the volume knob, lots of dynamic range. Stays in tune and looks stunning. Can't say enough good things about it. Very solid, well made guitar.
Style of Music: Classic Rock/Americana

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "An amazing guitar"
Overall: I love this guitar. First, it's beautiful. I ordered the wine red color. There were three on the zZounds website. I picked the one that appeared to have the most pronounced 'flame,' and it turned out to be gorgeous, looks like a custom shop guitar. Second, it is flawless. Fit and finish perfect in all regards. Third, it plays beautifully. I have an American Deluxe Strat (as well as an American Tele and a 335). I never thought I would find a guitar that plays as well as the Strat, but this one definitely does. The neck and fretboard fit my hand perfectly (I have small hands-- may not work as well for everyone). And the set-up was perfect for me, right out of the box. Finally, the sound is fantastic. (I switched out the strings it came with (9's) for 11's.) People talk about the sustain, which is amazing, but I think it's the resonance that really sets it apart. Sounds great unplugged, which I think is a critical test for any solid body guitar. And, finally finally, with the no-interest financing deal you have to discount the already low sticker price by a couple of hundred dollars. This is a great deal! Obviously, I am delighted with this purchase; no reservations or qualifications. (Note: I gave 'manufacturer support' five stars because I was required to put something, but actually I haven't needed any support-- the guitar arrived perfect as is.)
Style of Music: Primary obsession is electric blues. Also play country and jazz-- and rock too.
