    Gibson Limited Edition 1960s Les Paul Classic Plus Electric Guitar with Case Product Description

    The Gibson Limited Edition Les Paul Classic Plus electric guitar is a powerful embodiment of a legendary guitar that looks every lick as good as it sounds! Crafted from premium tonewoods, the Les Paul Classic Plus carries a highly figured Grade-AA maple top, which looks absolutely stunning beneath your choice of amazing finishes, all in high-gloss, hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer.

    Classic Les Paul Standard appointments such as acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays and cream body and neck binding are accompanied by a deceptively powerful pair of humbuckers mounted 'open-coil' for a modified look that sits great with the guitar's lack of pickguard, which also serves to show off the Les Paul Classic Plus's gorgeous wood. And, to top it all off, it has a slim '60s neck profile!

    Features

    - Genuine mahogany body with AA figured western maple top
    - Mahogany neck with '60s SlimTaper neck profile
    - Baked Maple fingerboard with trapezoid inlays
    - High-output Ceramic 496R and 500T humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge
    - Vintage-style TonePros tuners with push-in bushings and 14:1 tuning ratio

    Tonewoods

    As with the best Gibson Les Pauls crafted since the early '50s, the Les Paul Classic Plus starts with the legendary tonewood pairing of a solid carved Grade-AA maple top glued to a Grade-A mahogany body, strategically chambered to enhance resonance and reduce weight. Marrying maple's clarity and definition to mahogany's richness and depth produces a tonal complexity that no single-wood guitar has ever matched.

    The resonance and sustain are only further enhanced by the deep-set quarter-sawn mahogany neck with 17-degree back-angled headstock. Optimum playability is ensured by your choice of rounded '50s or slim '60s neck profile and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for choke-free string bending. The guitar's 22-fret fingerboard is made from baked maple, a heat-treated hardwood that offers a clear tone and extreme durability.

    Electronics

    To pump up all this tonal goodness to the max, Gibson loads the Les Paul Classic Plus with a pair of its hottest humbucking pickups. The 496R in the neck position is wound with 42-AWG wire like a traditional PAF for rich, warm, vocal-like tones, but carries a ceramic magnet for enhanced punch and clarity.

    The 500T in the bridge position is a more formidable beast altogether, wound with finer 43-AWG wire to pack the coils to the max and built with a ceramic magnet for scorching leads, endless sustain and willing feedback.

    Hardware

    A pairing of Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensures that the Les Paul Classic Plus has solid sustain and accurate intonation, while a set of vintage-style TonePros tuners with pearloid buttons looks great and makes tune-up a breeze.
