OVERVIEW

A golden 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 enhanced playing comfort and two of Gibson’s finest PAF-style humbucking pickups, with upgraded switching for bonus single-coil tones.

This “T” Gold Series model adds extra class to this tribute to the man himself with the elegance of gold-plated hardware.

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 Gold Series Electric Guitar:

I would have bought this guitar even without the coil taps and locking Grover tuners! This is a solid Les Paul at a reasonable price. The uncovered 57 classic pickups sound fantastic and the neck plays fast! I think that the reason why this version of the Les Paul is still available is because it uses Granadillo wood for its finger board as opposed to Rosewood or Ebony. Well Granadillo is supposed to be a hardwood similar to Rosewood and is used in the making of high end furniture. I'm old enough to remember when Rosewood meant Brazilian Rosewood and Rosewood fingerboards on high end guitars were more red than brown. I think the color of the Granadillo fingerboard on this guitar is a nice contrast to the Ebony finish. This guitar is a solid sounding, solid playing, solidly built GIBSON LES PAUL !!!!!

    Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Signature T Gold Series Electric Guitar:

    This is it. Nothing bad about this bad boy. The but is cut right! No buzz! Evenwith the 57 pickups it can play just about anything from blues to jazz to rock to metal and back. The push/pull feature sweetens this deal even more! You can go from humbucking to single coil in a flash. It's time to get your next Les Paul ;) p.s. This was my first.
