Gibson Product Overview

So what we have here is a top of the line USA 16 Les Paul! First thing you notice is stunning the 'torrefied' or 'roasted' Birdseye Maple top. The process of gently heating the wood to lower the moisture content has the extra effect of making the grain 'pop' out as you can see here! The back is top-grade Mahogany with modern weight relief. The neck is Mahogany with a rounded '50s profile whilst the fingerboard is a thick slab of Ironwood- a beautiful, very hard timber. There's genuine Mother-of-Pearl inlays and a slippy Tektoid nut which, with the aid of the locking Grover kidney tuners, aids tuning stability.

Hardware on the body includes a regular Tune-O-Matic bridge but with the addition of Titanium saddles. You can't go wrong with the Alnico II '57 Classic and slightly hotter Classic Plus humbuckers- they provide classic LP tone! Fitted brown hardshell case included.
