    Gibson Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin Left-Handed Electric Guitar, with Case Product Description

    With its '80s and early '90s-inspired design and visual cues, the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin left-handed electric guitar offers all the fat, sweet, snarling Les Paul tone and unparalleled playability that Gibson fans love. With 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 lefty Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin guitar is a real masterpiece!

    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 make the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin left handed guitar a unique take on the most rocking guitar ever made.

    Body

    The left handed Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin guitar 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

    The mahogany neck of this lefty Gibson Les Paul 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. 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 lefty handed Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Satin 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. 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.

    - Mahogany body with carved two-piece Mahogany top
    - Thin '60s SlimTaper neck profile
    - Rosewood fingerboard with acrylic trapezoid inlays
