    Classic, vintage Les Paul tone and performance with new 'burst options.

    All the sumptuous ingredients that made the Les Paul name great are in the Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus '50s Neck Profile Electric Guitar in spades: a skillfully carved maple top on a mahogany back perfectly joined to a mahogany neck powered by a 496R ceramic humbucker in the front and a 500T at the bridge. The Les Paul Classic Plus '50s Neck Profile is available for a limited time in a series of four beautiful transparent nitro lacquer finishes over AA figured maple tops. With high-output ceramic pickups, neck and body binding, this is is a real bargain in a full-featured, loaded Les Paul and now features the enhanced articulation of a Baked Maple fingerboard.

    496R/500T Humbuckers
    The Gibson 496R humbucker is a smokin’ neck pickup with incredible sustain and cutting power. The high-output ceramic magnet adds more highs with increased definition and no muddiness. The 500T bridge humbucker has a powerful multi-ceramic magnet structure enables this monster to cover lots of territory. It can scream or growl – never losing its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal-clear highs.

    Baked Maple:
    Aging maple through a “baking” process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows it’s no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically “live” and extremely stable. The snappy sound of ebony, with the look of medium-brown pau ferro. Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, it’s environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!

      Comments about Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus '50s Neck Profile Electric Guitar:

      I was a little concerned about the weight. The Classic is 2 lbs. heaver than all my other guitars, including a LP Special and a LP BFG, but once I plugged it in, I was hooked. People may think you're nuts to spend this kind of money on a guitar but the saying is true, "You Get What You Pay For" The finish is flawless, the sound amazing.Buy it. I got the Heritage Cherry Sunburst. I think I need a Vintage Sunburst too...
