Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst

Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Pro Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst

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, packiBody: Mahogany Top: Carved maple Back: Mahogany Neck: Set mahogany Neck Profile: ’60s Headstock: Angled Scale length: 24-3/4″ Fingerboard: Bound Rosewood No. of frets: 22 Nut width: 1.69″ Inlays: Trapezoid Binding: Antique Bridge: Tune-O-Matic with stopbar tailpiece Tuners: Locking Grover Hardware: Chrome Bridge pickup: potted BurstBucker 3 humbucker with push/pull coil splitting Neck Pickup: ’57 Classic with push/pull coil splitting Electronics: 2 volume with push/pull coil-splitting, 2 tone, 3
