Gibson USA 2019 Les Paul Traditional, Tobacco Burst
The Les Paul Traditional; a true slice of history, heritage and Rock n' Roll. An Instrument crafted with all the classic ingredients that helped to make this guitar a legend, but with the purity of an all-mahogany body. The mahogany back is weight relieved with nine strategically placed holes that also enhance the guitar's resonance, and capped with a carved two-piece mahogany top, just like the legendary Les Paul Custom introduced in 1954.
The mahogany neck is made from quarter-sawn timber for superior strength and resonance, and topped with a Grade-A bi-layer rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and cream binding. Trapezoid inlays contribute to the traditional look, while the popular slim '60s profile' measuring .800" deep at the 1st fret and .875" at the 12th' ensure unparalleled speed and playability, with a 12" fingerboard radius for choke-free bending. The preferred 17-degree headstock pitch improves string pressure in the slots of the PLEK-cut Corian nut for optimum resonance and sustain.
For the Les Paul purist there has never been a better instrument than the 2019 Les Paul Traditional.
