Product Description

The High Performance Traditional guitar gorgeously blends old and new for a premium Les Paul. The Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP is the modern incarnation of the original Gibson Les Paul with a futuristic set of premium, high-performance features.

It boasts a new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, to allow unprecedented access to the high notes - which, combined with our new soloist neck width, provides the fastest and most comfortable Traditional Les Paul neck you’ve ever played. Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. A pair of ‘57 Classic humbuckers delivers classic Les Paul tones, while genuine mother of pearl inlays and a luxurious aluminum case add to this premium guitar’s gestalt.

A carved maple top and solid mahogany back with no weight relief deliver the meaty, thick tones of the Les Pauls that legends were made of.

Still in awe

What is your opinion of this product?
AAA honeyburst finish is stunning. Classic 57 pickups sound incredible. G-force tuners are amazing and open up a lot of opportunities for alternate tunings. The aluminum case is nice but very heavy and large. No regrets here. Very pleased. This is a work of art. Ordering was a snap and delivery was right on time.
