A modern take on a Les Paul from the '60s. The Les Paul Classic 2017 T riffs on the beloved guitars of the '60s and '70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability, yielding a true Classic with contemporary twists. A Grade-A plain maple top on a mahogany back with 9-hole weight relief combine for subtle beauty with enhanced resonance and superb playing comfort. The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut.

Zebra '57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a Bigsby tremolo opens the door to warbly goodness. Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs add an elegant touch. Delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

This guitar is amazing, as it being my first Gibson I cannot imagine there being something better. It was setup perfectly upon me receiving it, although their stock strings aren't so great. Changed them and put some Elixir Nanoweb Strings 10s and I was good to go. The neck feels amazing, hardly have to tune it, the pickups are so fat and juicy, again not too hot and not too light, great price, beautiful case. Oh and also remember, you get what you pay for! In this case you get way more. The price is justified! Get this guitar. :)
