    Product Description

    The Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2013 Electric Guitar is for players who love the classic Les Pauls of the 50s and 60s. The Les Paul Traditional features a Mahogany body with a beautiful AA figured Maple top and no weight relief for players who want the tone and feel of a solid body. 57 Classic and 57 Classic Plus humbuckers with orange drop capacitors stay true to vintage Gibson Les Paul tone!

    Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2013 Electric Guitar Specifications

    • Mahogany Body with AA figured maple Top
    • Late ‘50s Round Mahogany Neck
    • Bound Rosewood Fingerboard
    • 57 Classic and 57 Classic Plus Humbuckers with orange drop capacitors
    • Includes Hardshell Case
    The Les Paul Traditional’s tonewood combination retains the great sound of the original Les Paul Standard, with an unchambered back for a thick, meaty tone and superb sustain. It’s rounded late-’50s neck shape reflects one of the most popular profiles ever used on a Les Paul. All this, and the new Les Paul Traditional looks outrageous with its Grade-AA figured maple top, all in high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer.

    Body
    The Les Paul Traditional is built on a foundation of the same traditional tonewood combination that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary when it first arrived six decades ago. A carved solid Grade-AA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound while looking great in the process, and a solid, mahogany back without weight relief contributes superb warmth and depth.

    Neck
    A quarter-sawn, Grade-A mahogany neck is glued in and carved in a comfortably rounded late-’50s profile that measures .900 inch at the 1st fret and 1.00 inch at the 12th, and topped with a bound Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays.

    Appointments
    Traditional touches include cream body and fingerboard binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, along with gold Speed Knobs with dial pointers. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24-3/4 inch scale length, a 1-11/16 inch width across the PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending.

    Electronics
    Pure vintage-voiced tone with a contemporary edge is assured by a pair of Gibson’s ’57 Classic pickups with traditional chromed covers. Both are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late 1950s with Alnico II magnets, a traditional wind in the neck position for plenty of warmth and clarity, and slightly over-wound coils in the ’57 Classic Plus in the bridge position for juicy crunch and wailing lead tones. Both pickups are wax potted, too, to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels, and routed through Orange Drop tone capacitors to their individual tone controls for a smooth, rich high-end roll off.

    Hardware
    The innovative pairing of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality TonePros vintage-style ensures smooth, accurate tuning.

    Protection
    Each guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case covered in black snakeskin-textured vinyl, an owner’s manual, and truss-rod wrench, and comes covered by Gibson USA’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 Customer Service.

    Great Guitar
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I believe that the 2013 Les Paul Traditional is a significant model in the Gibson line. The tone and playability is great and the look of the guitar is fantastic. I waited until the end of year closeout sale and the value is incredible. This is a guitar that will be in my collection for many years to come.

    2013 Traditional
    Your general opinion of this product.
    Not my first Gibson, have owned Gibson's since the 80's. This is not a fanboy best guitar in the world post. Although this guitar has some nice things about it. I find it hard to give a guitar a "5" rating because I am comparing to many guitars in the past that I have either owned or played. Although a "4" is not bad either and better than average. Is there a big enough difference between this guitar and less expensive Les Pauls like a studio; depends on the person who owns the guitar. In this situation this is a mellow sounding instrument compared to my other Studios (05 and Gvt Edition) purchased here at AMS. On to the review.....

    A BEAUTIFUL Guitar
    Your general opinion of this product.
    I am a professional musician and started out on Gibson's 3 decades ago. Somewhere along the line I switched to strats because I know they are very heavy duty and having to beat a drunken bar patron over the head was no concern for my strats... I decided to treat myself to a dream guitar and I had been checking it out for months and decided to pull the trigger. It arrived 2 days after I placed the order and I did fall hopelessly in love with it at first sight. I gig nearly every weekend and I know this will take some abuse, but I do not care. It instantly became my #1 guitar and will remain so until death does us part. Oh... and by the way... I do not play many bars any more and I seldom see any sort of violence taking place at weddings I play at regularly!

    What a great Guitar
    Your general opinion of this product.
    This is my 4th Traditional, and I am thinking the best. I love the Carmel Burst Finish. I have two Honey Burst and a Gold Tone. Sound and Finish are perfect.
