The Gibson Les Paul Classic combines the early 60's style Les Paul model with some functional and time-tested modifications. As expected, the LP Classic is crafted with a mahogany back and maple top coupled with a slim taper mahogany neck and bound, rosewood fingerboard. Burstbucker 61R & 61T zebra, open-coil pickups provide classic Gibson tones from the era with a bit of extra punch thanks to the open coils. The control assembly features 4 push-pull pots which provide choices of coil tapping, phase switching and pure bypassing for functional and versatile sonic variety.

I'm a Gibson man all the way. Been tough the last few years with some of the issues around. Gibson ia back. After much research I decided to order the Honeyburst model. From the moment I saw it out of the case, felt it in my hands I knew it was a very well crafted instrument. Then I plugged it in.The output is high and definitely matches my energy as a player. The guitar sings. It also has turned me on to the addition of the pull knobs and all of the additional tones I can pull from the guitar. Without saying much more, buy it, try it and you will be sold. 5th Gibson ive owned lines from studio to traditional and this one is by far the best.
