The Gibson Les Paul Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players have embraced such as lighter-weight bodies and innovative slim taper neck with asymmetrical profiles. The Modern fingerboard is crafted with genuine ebony and a compound radius for lower, and cleaner action. The neck/body joint features the new Modern contoured heel for effortless access to the highest frets as well as maximum sustain and stability. Hardware upgrades include Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, clear top hat knobs and BurstBucker Pro and BurstBucker Pro + pickups. The control assembly features 4 push-pull pots to switch between the Gibson humbucker and the single coil P90 sounds, both of which have defined so many genres of music across multiple generations since we invented them, phase switching and pure bypass for functional and versatile sonic variety. The new Gibson Les Paul modern is here to shape sound for future generations.

You're either going to love it or hate it. Me personally I truly love it. I've owned & do own several Les Pauls and this Modern is just awesome. The Burstbuckers are a perfect pickup choice & no more richlite for the fretboard! It's back to ebony with real mother of pearl inlays.It'd be great if they offered more color options. I chose the graphite colorGreat guitar needs a setup but don't they all?
