GibsonLes Paul Standard Traditional Pro Electric GuitarColor: Ebony

Free Case: Gibson Hardshell included

Guitar is brand new in the original/sealed box, comes with manufacturer's warranty, and certificate of authenticity. No defects or flaws whatsoever, exactly as advertised.

Taking design and visual cues from the Les Pauls
of the '80s and '90s, the Les Paul Traditional Pro features BurstBucker 3
and '57 Classic pickups with push/pull coil splits, '60s neck profile,
Grover locking tuners, antique binding, period-correct pickguard,
vintage Gibson top hat knobs, and the revolutionary Plek set up.

With
all the fat, sweet, snarling Les Paul tone that purists love, the new
Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro sports a mahogany body with a
thick maple cap for the perfect blend of warmth and clarity. The top is
finished in high-gloss lacquer, while the back, sides, and neck have a
smooth satin finish that feels great and lets the wood resonate fully.
Each Les Paul Traditional also comes with Gibson USA's standard black
snakeskin case.

Period-Correct Pickguard
The
creme-colored pickguard has been a Les Paul staple dating back to the
models of the late 1950s and the early 1960s. Many players, however,
removed the pickguard from their Les Pauls to show off the beauty of the
flame maple tops, prompting Gibson to stop installing the pickguard
altogether. During the 1980s and 1990s, Gibson began reinstalling the
pickguard in the factory, and the Les Pauls from this era once again
arrived in stores bearing the classic, creme-colored pickguard. The Les
Paul Traditional comes equipped with a period-correct pickguard,
designed to protect the maple top.

Pickups: Neck - '57 Classic; Bridge - BurstBucker 3
Among
the qualities that make Gibson's original "Patent Applied For"
humbucking pickups so unique are the subtle variations between coil
windings. For the first few years of their productions—1955 to
1961—Gibson's PAF humbuckers were wound using imprecise machines,
resulting in pickups with slightly different output and tone. The
BurstBucker 3 and '57 Classic Plus pickups are the result of Gibson's
drive to capture and recreate this characteristic. Introduced in 1992,
the '57 Classic provides warm, full tone with a balanced response,
packing that classic Gibson PAF humbucker crunch, inspired by those
original PAFs that received a few extra turns of wire. Both are made by
Gibson to the exact same specs as the original PAFs, including Alnico II
magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and
vintage-style, 2-conductor braided wiring. Gibson added poly-coated
wiring, which improves consistency by eliminating thick or thin spots on
the wiring, and wax potting, which removes all internal air space and
any chance of microphonic feedback. Both pickups offer coil splitting
for single-coil sounds via push/pull switching in the volume controls.

Revolutionary Plek Set Up
The
Les Paul Traditional is the first model from Gibson USA to utilize the
revolutionary Plek machine in setting up the guitar. The Plek is a
German-made, computer-controlled machine that carefully measures each
fret, along with the fingerboard height under each string, and then
automatically dresses each fret, virtually eliminating string buzz and
greatly improving the overall playability of the guitar. This pioneering
process does in minutes what it takes a luthier several hours—sometimes
even days—to accomplish. Every fret is accurately aligned, and the
guitar is properly intonated, leaving the instrument "Plek'd" and
amazingly playable.

Antique Binding
To see
the process of putting the binding on the Les Paul Traditional is to
really appreciate the effort and attention that Gibson puts into each
instrument. A lone craftsman will carefully glue and fit 2 pieces of
binding around the entire body of a Les Paul. He then winds a single,
very long piece of narrow cloth around the entire body until the entire
surface is nearly covered. The body is then hung to dry for a full 24
hours before it is unwrapped and moved into the next phase of
production. It has been done the same way for over 100 years. Some
question the value of adding binding, but Gibson believes it is a
fundamental part of our rich guitar-making history. The binding adds
elegance to the Les Paul Standard, and helps protect the edges of the
body. The neck binding is installed over the fret ends, which eliminates
sharp fret edges and provides for a smooth neck and easier playability.
