    Gibson Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin Electric Guitar with Case Product Description

    The Gibson Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin electric guitar gives the all-mahogany purity of classics such as the Les Paul Custom and Special models of the 1950s, yet with traditional Les Paul Standard features. The Les Paul Traditional mahogany includes two of Gibson's most popular alnico PAF-style pickups, a fast '60s-style neck with genuine rosewood fingerboard, and traditional '80s-era appointments and construction, in an all-mahogany Gibson Les Paul that looks superbly played-in in nitrocellulose lacquer finish.

    With its '80s and early '90s-inspired design and visual cues, the Les Paul Traditional line from Gibson USA offers all the fat, sweet, snarling Gibson Les Paul tone and unparalleled playability that Gibson fans love, and which so many of today's players grew up lusting after.

    Body

    The Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin is crafted with all the classic ingredients that helped to make this guitar a legend, but with the purity of an all-mahogany body. The mahogany back is weight relieved with nine strategically placed holes that also enhance the guitar's resonance, and capped with a carved two-piece mahogany top, just like the legendary Les Paul Custom introduced in 1954.

    Neck and Fingerboard

    The mahogany neck is made from quarter-sawn timber for superior strength and resonance, and topped with a Grade-A bi-layer rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and cream binding. Trapezoid inlays contribute to the traditional look, while the popular slim '60s profile, measuring .800 inch deep at the 1st fret and .875 inch at the 12th, ensure unparalleled speed and playability, with a 12 inch fingerboard radius for choke-free bending. The preferred 17-degree headstock pitch improves string pressure in the slots of the PLEK-cut Corian nut for optimum resonance and sustain.

    Pickups

    The Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin guitar carries two of Gibson USA's most popular humbucking pickups, a '57 Classic in the neck position for sweet, warm vocal tones, and a slightly hotter '57 Classic Plus in the bridge for gutsy crunch and soaring lead tones. These acclaimed pickups are made with genuine Alnico II magnets and wound with 42 AWG wire, just like the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s, and offer a blend of depth and clarity that few pickups can match today. They are installed with chromed covers, in keeping with the 'Traditional' styling.

    Hardware

    A Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece ensure a solid anchor and optimum sustain, while vintage-look TonePros tuners with pearloid buttons maintain the classic look of the Les Paul Traditional Mahogany. Further classic appointments include a mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo and silkscreened gold 'Les Paul Model', cream binding and pickguard, and gold Top-Hat knobs with silver inserts.
