    Gibson Les Paul Traditional Left Handed 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A Great Guitar
    What is your overall opinion of this product?
    This guitar sustains forever and has great tone too. I think there is some trade off; to get that tone the 2013 L.P. Traditional has no weight relief. I would guess mine is over 10 lbs. I am not sure what makes the new honey burst "new", but it looks great. I think given the reasonable price of the traditional line and the great sound, anyone looking to drop $2,500 and up for a standard, a reissue or a PRS should at least check the traditional out.
