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!

      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

      An amazing, extremely well built, truely musical sounding instrument. 57/57 plus pickups, locking tuners, Gloss nitro, and American made pride. Traditional weight relief vs modern weight relief.....she's a big girl when she sits in my lap but the pound or pound and a half is worth it for the sustain and tone.

        Excellent Gibson Quality. The fit and finish are second to none.I purchased this to replaced my old Gold Top that is now retired, like me. 40 years of faithful service and 2 broken necks later. Both from accidents, not abuse. I look forward to many hours of making music this this new beauty!

        What a great guitar!!

        Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

        Okay, first of all I need to express how pleased I am with this guitar. I was really skeptical about making the purchase because of the slim taper neck. I have a '68 Les and the neck is so wide you could land a plane on it. But I love a fat neck. I couldn't bring myself to buy the gold top. Two days later, I see the green ocean burst. I'm in love!!! However, I think the slim taper neck could be a deal breaker. So, with a little coaxing from the wife, I buy the green ocean burst.
        That was Christmas, this review is June. I still love my '68 black beauty, but she is in her case resting. I play my new Les all day long! The neck is quite a bit smaller than I was used to. That just forced me to work on my precision and to get out of my "comfort zone". I play cleaner and those fret stretches are a bit easier. This guitar will growl like a demon or sing like an angel! It will do anything else in between! I play all different styles of music, and I can do it all with this Les Paul! If you are thinking of buying it...Just Do It!!!! You will not regret it!

        Always wanted a Gold Top

        Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

        It was still in tune upon arrival, great setup, incredible action...
        I did have to modify the guitar to obtain my vision of a traditional LP and for less than the "Traditional" version.
        All in all a great guitar, still a bit pricey but hey, we only live once.
