Gibson USA is celebrating 2013 as the Year of Les Paul, and there’s no better tribute than a guitar dedicated to the man himself. The Les Paul Signature T wraps all of Les Paul’s legendary innovation into a sweet looking and great sounding Les Paul that honors the memory of this legendary guitar’s inventor, while providing an instrument primed for the power and versatility demanded by today’s gigging guitarist.
The Les Paul Signature T 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 a select mahogany back—treated with Gibson’s traditional weight relief to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance—contributes superb warmth and depth.
A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast 60s SlimTaper profile, and topped with a rich brown Grade-A Granadillo 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 and a black bell truss-rod cover with commemorative ‘T’ engraving. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24 ¾ inch scale length, a 1-11/16 inches width across the PLEK-cut Corian nut, and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending.
’57 Classic Humbuckers
For a blend of vintage tone and modern versatility, the Les Paul Signature T is loaded with a pair of Gibson’s ’57 Classic pickups, mounted open-coil for a subtle hotrod look. Both are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late 1950s with Alnico II magnets in the neck position for plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, the ’57 Classic Plus which features slightly over-wound coils for juicy crunch and wailing lead tones. Both pickups are wax potted, too, to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Both pickups feature push-pull tone controls which provide coil splitting for authentic single-coil tones.
The innovative pairing of a Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality Grover locking tuners 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.
