 The Les Paul Model of 1952 to 1956 with fat single-coil P-90 pickups has long been a favorite of plenty of rock'n'rollers, bluesers and garage rockers. As legendary as those guitars are, though, they have certain limitations that are inherent to the breed. Their fatter rounded-D neck profiles don't suit everyone, and as great as a smokin' P-90 can sound, they are sometime considered a "one-sound" pickup. Also, while the traditional Goldtop finish might be undeniably hip, a different look is always welcome. Enter the Les Paul Traditional Pro with Tapped P-90s from Gibson USA, exclusive to Guitar Center. Derived from the P-90 equipped Les Paul Model of 1956 with Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, this outstanding new design represents a new combination of features that offers players a choice of the two most popular neck profiles of all time—a comfortably rounded '50s "D" neck or a fast slimmer '60s neck—with a Goldtop finish on the former and a sleek Ebony Black on the latter. To top it off, each version has the versatility of Gibson USA's new tapped P-90 pickups, all with a few twists that make it perfect for today's demanding player.
