The Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2017 T takes you on a trip back in time to the Les Paul's golden era. A Les Paul inspired by the legendary late '50s Les Pauls, with all the benefits of modern-era Gibsons. From a distance -- with its Traditional features and accurate Grade-AA maple top on a solid mahogany body -- this Les Paul could be mistaken for a guitar kept under the bed since 1959. Once in your hand, Les Paul Traditional 2017 T unveils subtle but incredibly significant advances: rolled binding, polished frets, and a rounded neck profile make this guitar extremely comfortable to play. Wired ABR and aluminum stopbar with steel posts deliver incredible resonance and sustain while Burstbuckers 1 and Burstbuckers 2 humbuckers with Orange Drop tone caps crank out dynamic, expressive PAF-inspired tones. Put it all together, and it's a superb take on the best of Les Pauls past, made for today's demanding player. It is delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

I just picked up one of the 2017 traditional Paul's with the cherry sunburst finish. Beautiful guitar to both look at and play. Tones from it are pure classic Gibson. Page, Slash and early Clapton you get that vibe with this guitar. I have not personally seen or played a lot of the Traditional Les Paul's but if they are all like this one, wow. I almost feel like I am playing a '59 reissue from custom shop.
