OVERVIEW

Experience the heritage of the '60s and '70s, but with modern-day playability.

The Les Paul Classic 2017 T riffs on the beloved guitars of the '60s and '70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability, yielding a true Classic with contemporary twists. A Grade-A plain maple top on a mahogany back with 9-hole weight relief combine for subtle beauty with enhanced resonance and superb playing comfort. The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut. Zebra '57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a nickel wired ABR bridge and aluminum stop bar combine for solid sustain. Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs add an elegant touch. Delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

      I bought this from a store but am reviewing here because I'm usually a pretty loyal MF customer. I've read a lot about Gibson quality lacking in recent years and other years (I believe 2016) came with features that customers didn't like etc. I own a 2009 Les Paul Traditional Pro and several other higher end guitars (PRS/Charvel USA/several others) a Flying V included. First of all, the quality of this instrument is phenomenal so I'm not certain of the comments about Gibson being lacking in quality are accurate. The features are perfect and standard for what you'd expect to get from a LP. I bought the Goldtop version and the finish is beautiful. The pictures here on MF don't do it justice. The store also had the Ocean Green version, equally as pretty. I play thru two vintage Marshals (ergo Radial Tonebone from MF) and this guitar sounds amazing. The pickups were surprisingly hot and very articulate for my tone and sound. I'll likely replace with some Bare Knuckles but that's because of personal preference and not because of the stock pickups lacking in any way. The hardware is all immaculate and super functional, the tuners for example are super high quality and the guitar locks in really well once the strings have stretched a bit. It's intonated perfectly. All in all, my perception of the quality, playability, and tone is well above my expectations and I'm super stoked to own it. It's a keeper for sure!

      Sweet guitar beautiful color

      By Showtime

      from Sarasota Florida

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

      Just sold a 10 year old gold top and regretting it. Then I saw the add for the 2017 les Paul classic in green. I found one locally played it and the gold top. Both great guitars. But the green burst is just so beautiful I had to get one. I absolutely love the way it plays and the sound is awesome. Everything I could have hoped for
