Gibson 2018 Les Paul Classic P90s – Ebony – $3,599
Brand new Gibson 2018 Les Paul Classic – Ebony. Made in USA
Gibson’s Les Paul Classic 2018 solidbody electric guitar blends everything we all love about ’60s-era Les Pauls with a single-coil tonal twist that makes them reliable workhorses for modern guitarists. The mahogany body is still capped with the familiar maple top, with the Les Paul Classic’s SlimTaper neck profile. Additions such as Grover tuners and rolled fretboard edges make the guitar incredibly comfortable. The Les Paul Classic 2018 delivers familiar feel with one of the most desirable single-coil tones out there.
It boasts all the features and design elements that have made the Les Paul one of the most beloved electric guitar designs in history. The single-cutaway body sings with the familiar balance of mahogany’s warmth and maple’s clear sustain. This non-weight-relieved body provides ultimate sustain. And the mahogany and rosewood neck is carved to Gibson’s popular SlimTaper profile that feels great during chording or single-note runs.
Warm, creamy, shiny, and full of life, the P-90s capture the very essence of the classic pre-PAF P-90. Roll back the tone, keep the volume in check, and you’ll have access to the liquid jazz lines Les Paul himself liked to play. Or open them up full-throttle and tap into the slightly rude and gritty tone they have to offer.
While the majority of the features are aimed at re-creating the best aspects of vintage instruments, Gibson loaded these models with a few additions that prepare them for the demands of the modern musician. The most popular upgrade is the rolled fretboard and binding edges. And a set of Grover tuners ensures your performances are free from any tuning issues.
