    A timeless tribute to the man who started it all.

    The 2013 Les Paul Signature “T” wraps all of Les Paul’s legendary innovation into a sweet looking and great sounding Les Paul that honors the memory of this legendary guitar’s inventor, while providing an instrument primed for the power and versatility demanded by today’s gigging guitarist. Traditional tonewoods are married to enhance playing comfort and two of Gibson’s finest PAF-style humbucking pickups, with upgraded switching for bonus single-coil tones.

    The Les Paul Signature “T” is built on a foundation of the same traditional tonewood combination that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary when it first arrived six decades ago. A carved solid Grade-AA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back—treated with Gibson’s traditional weight relief to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance—contributes superb warmth and depth. A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast 60s SlimTaper™ profile, and topped with a rich brown Grade-A Granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays.

    Traditional touches include cream body and fingerboard binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, along with gold Speed Knobs and a black “bell” truss-rod cover with commemorative “T” engraving. Classic Gibson construction ensures optimum playability, too, along with traditional specs like a 24 ¾” scale length, a 1 11/16” width across the PLEK-cut Corian™ nut, and a 12-inch fingerboard radius for smooth, easy bending.

    For a blend of vintage tone and modern versatility, the Les Paul Signature “T” is loaded with a pair of Gibson’s ’57 Classic™ pickups, mounted “open coil” for a subtle hotrod look. Both are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late 1950s with Alnico II magnets in the neck position for plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, the ’57 Classic Plus™ which features slightly over-wound coils for juicy crunch and wailing lead tones. Both pickups are wax potted, too, to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Both pickups feature push-pull tone controls which provide coil splitting for authentic single-coil tones.

    The innovative pairing of a Tune-o-Matic™ bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality Grover™ locking tuners ensures smooth, accurate tuning.

    Each guitar includes a Gibson hardshell case covered in black snakeskin-textured vinyl, an owner's manual and truss-rod wrench.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Signature T Electric Guitar:

      Pleasantly surprised. I wasn't planning on buying a new guitar. I dropped in to the local Long & McQuade and started noodling around on several LP models and after playing the Standards and a couple new Traditionals, the sales guy said I should try the Signature. His favourite of the bunch and just in. I plugged in and said WOW. Bought it on the spot and home I go. You know what happens next. Better than I hoped in every way. Playability, sound, electronics are all exceptional. I have played a Studio LP for years and was happy with it, this LP Signature though is a very noticeable upgrade. The 60's neck is easier for me to play and the '57 pups have the best range and response I have ever heard coming out of my amp. The coil tapping feature is more than just a gimmick, the pots are very accurate for tone and volume, and the locking Grovers stayed in tune all night. The versatility of this guitar is remarkable. I think I have found the "ONE"! Truly a professional instrument. Already sold the Studio to our other guitar player and the Strat may soon be very lonely. Love this guitar.

      Sounds like a true Les Paul. The 57s are excellent. The grenadillo fretboard is a lighter brown than a rosewood board but has a very nice smooth feel to it. To me it matches up color-wise pretty well with the wine and honeyburst finishes, maybe not so much with others. Excellent LP.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Signature T Electric Guitar:

      I purchased the wine red model. The locking Grovers and beautiful top were certainly strong selling points for me. I don't play a Lester to hear single coils so I couldn't care less about the tapped humbuckers, but I suppose it's cool for other players. The set up was much better than normal for a new guitar so kudos to Gibson. My tech hasn't had to see this guitar yet!

      The tone is great. Those '57's kick some serious butt and the tone is pure Les Paul. My Lesters have had many of Gibson's stock pickups and I've also experimented with a number of aftermarkets (some were expensive boutique ones). I have never had a Les Paul sound this good to my ears. I play hard stuff, but even the cleans have that great tone that the good ones have. Did I get an exceptional one or are they all this good? I'm not sure, but this one sings beautifully.

      The only negative I have is purely aesthetic. The granadillo board is lighter than usual and I would prefer the traditional look of rosewood.

      However, in the end it's about how the guitar sounds, not the color of the board. Thanks Gibson.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Signature T Electric Guitar:

      Like many, I was nervous when Gibson began discontinuing models in 2013. This guitar is the perfect replacement for the Les Paul Classic and the numerous different Les Paul Traditionals from years past.

      The set up out of the box was spot on. The frets are smooth and the neck is fast. 57 Classic pickups provide fantastic tone; furthermore, the coil splitting option allows for Strat-like sounds with the simple pull of a knob.

      I chose the traditional burst finish on what Gibson claims is a AA maple top. I looked at five side by side and they all had varying degrees of flame. One in particular had so little flame, it could have been mistaken for a plain-top (Buyer be ware if ordering online).

      The pickups were slightly hotter than other covered 57 classics I've tried in the past, but the Signature T still manages to provide clear clean tones. The Signature T really comes to life when played with a bit of dirt. No overdrive pedal required for this tone monster. Just plug into a solid amp and go!

      While this guitar is not as "advanced" as the new LP Standard, it will no doubt provide any potential buyer with years of joy.

      Bottom line: A fantastic Gibson, for a reasonable price.
