A single-cut rock machine with superb power and versatility.
For too long the luthiers at Gibson have reserved the 7-string guitars for other popular models like the Flying V' and Explorers, but no longer!
The Les Paul Classic 7-String is here to lay down the lowdown for the single-cut rock machine, with superb power and versatility, and all the iconic looks that made the Les Paul a Classic in the first place. The mahogany body with traditional weight-relief and carved maple top form the foundation, while the glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece rosewood fingerboard all stick to the 24.75 scale length for the playing feel you™ve come to love.
A Seymour Duncan ™59+ in the neck position and hot JB in the bridge blast out scorching humbucker tones, with push-pull coil splitting for brighter single-coil sound, and there' an onboard 15dB Turbo Boost when you really need to blow the house down.
The popular SlimTaper neck profile helps you maintain speed and playing ease across the full seven strings, and feels great from low-string riffing to high-fret wailing. The Les Paul Classic 7-String comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.

Comments about Gibson Les Paul Classic 7 String Electric Guitar:
With a guitar like this, you have to know ahead of time what it is you want. If it's a heavily drop tuned shredder with hotter than Hades active pickups and ultra,modern SouthEast Asian tone, this is not your guitar. If you want a Les Paul Classic (sounds like a new Traditional) with 7 strings, then you just hit the jackpot. It's a real Les Paul in every way, heavy, killer tone, gorgeous looks, that unmistakable Gibson sound, endless sustain, perfect balance, in other words, every reason you would buy a Les Paul, AND it doesn't have those electric tuners like many new ones do. The neck scale is 24.75 as most Gibson guitars are. I've heard a lot of players gripe about the intonation of shorter scale 7 string guitars, let me tell you, even dropped a whole tone and more, I've never had it lose even one cent at any fret. Again, it's not meant to drop 4 whole steps. The shorter scale makes it easier to play than my other longer scale 7 strings, especially to hit harmonics on the fly and to play lead as though it were a 6 string. We do play metal, and some doom style riffs, and it has no trouble belting out that Black Sabbath, Pentragram, Type-O sound, but still does a faithful Led Zeppelin too. The bottom line is this: If you want that classic Gibson tone but also need a 7 string, this is your guitar. If I had to have only one Les Paul, this would be it. I have vinrage Marshalls and a new Blackstar HT-5 amp and it produces just KILLER metal and classic tone on cue, I have a Gibson RD Custom Artist (which I bought new in 1977 and would never take to a gig) and a large collection of other guitars. This thing just seems to end up in my hands more than most of them, it's often the only one I take "to work"..
