Traditional Tone Paired With a Modern Tuning OptionClassic 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-TappingThe 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 TonewoodsOne 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 FingerboardFans 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.
Optional Min-ETune SystemIt's no secret that Gibson -- a longtime leader in guitar innovation -- has been hard at work perfecting an automatic tuning system that frees musicians to concentrate on what matters most: playing guitar. The newest iteration of Gibson's bold invention is known as the Min-ETune system. This small, lightweight processor sits on the back of your headstock -- completely out of view from the front -- and tunes your guitar in a matter of seconds with an impressive +/- 2 cent accuracy. In addition to the standard tunings you expect, 12 popular alternate tunings are pre-programmed, with the ability to save an additional 6 user-defined presets.
