Product Description

A modern take on a Les Paul from the '60s.The Les Paul Classic 2017 T riffs on the beloved guitars of the '60s and '70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability, yielding a true Classic with contemporary twists. A Grade-A plain maple top on a mahogany back with 9-hole weight relief combine for subtle beauty with enhanced resonance and superb playing comfort.

The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut. Zebra '57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a nickel wired ABR bridge and aluminum stopbar combine for solid sustain. Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs add an elegant touch. Delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

Geat Guitar; Excellent Purchase
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I ordered this guitar; having several Classic's in the past. The finish, quality, and overall construction of this guitar is excellent. Exactly what you would expect from Gibson. I really love the finish; the pictures do not do it true justice. The '57 pickups are sharp, cutting, and sound great dirty or clean. This pickup combination surprised me a bit as I have owned others but not this combo. They sound great with blues, classic rock, harder modern rock, pretty much very versatile. I did not install the included pick guard as I would never disturb the way this piece came from the factory; but others may feel differently. The other hardware is exactly as stated; I love the locking tuners, they work well for me after my initial string break in, staying in tune fine. I can't find a negative thing to say about this guitar. I actually was more impressed by it than I thought I would be after running it through my break in and checks. The price is very reasonable.

Reminds me of why I love being a guitarist
What is your opinion of this product?
Can't get over how great this guitar sounds, perfect vintage Les Paul tone! I keep hearing Jimmy Paige, Pete Townsend, Clapton circa John Mayall, shades of Duane...and then I look at her. Beautiful top, just enough flaming to look excruciatingly elegant. Was a birthday present, the guy said he'd pick me out a good one, and did not disappoint. Very pleased, indeed. Can't ever go wrong with a Gibson!

This 2017 Gibson Les Paul model will truly be a classic!
What is your opinion of this product?
I just received the Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus T and was amazed with the craftsmanship and flawless finish. Gibson has stepped up their game on this model. The flame maple top looks incredible. The guitar plays like a dream! The zebra classic 57 and classic 57+ pickups have that vintage Gibson dynamic clean and classic rock sound. This Les Paul has the industry standard Grover (locking) tuners! Add to the fact that it includes the high end Gibson Les Paul hard case, multi tool, guitar cloth, Gibson logo guitar strap, pickguard if you choose to install it and a picture of the guitar taken by the tech who inspected and tested the guitar at factory! At the closeout price of $1699.00 it is a steal! Buy one quick as this Plus model is a limited run and I'm sure it will sell out fast! Great service and shipping as always from AMS!!!

Well worth the money and easy to play
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve had many Gibson Les Pauls from The Gold Top customs to my tobacco standard. I always liked the classic line and you get the bang for your buck. The action on this guitar is a tiny bit high, but with a quick setup from my guy it’ll be playing like my other Gibson’s. Will do business with AMS very soon again. Thanks
