The toughest machine on the road!
The perfect Les Paul for the artist with a heavy gig schedule, the Gibson Les Paul GT combines flash looks with rugged construction and super-functional appointments. Over/under dual truss rod provides extra support for the mahogany neck with robust classic '50s profile and and a lustrous bound ebony fretboard. Ghosted flame finish looks great and holds up to years of hard play while the locking Neutrik jack keeps your cable plugged in. 490R and 498T humbuckers offer coil-tap access with push-pull pots and a high-pass filter that maintains highs when you back off the volume and smoothes the taper from one to 10. Volume controls remain entirely independent even when toggle is in the middle position.

A real Les Paul. Heavy-as expected. Sustain for days. Seperate coil taps and many new features, but no phase switch. Great tones, superb playability. Can't but a better Les Paul or any guitar for this price.
This is the best guitar I've ever played. The neck action is great I love the 50's profile. The pickups sound incredible, the independent volume controls are awesome so you get a much higher out put. This is the best guitar Ever!
I just got this guitar at the music store in black one of the nicest sounding and coolest looking les puals out there. If your going to buy a les paul this is most definitly one.
Don't be fooled by the rave reviews about this guitar. it's heavy, like holding a rock, but that's not a good thing because: It's not a solid mahogany body, it's a mahogany swiss cheesefest with a maple veneer, which will not give you true les paul tone. the woods are subpar. wonder why the black guitar is cheaper than the others? because they can use cheap wood with their solid colors. The hardware is horrible. cheap tuners, cheap toggle, cheap bridge. The pickups are awful. Plan on getting some real pickups(seymour duncan, dimarzio, bareknuckle etc.). The binding is poor, frets could use work. the overall construction is shoddy. Try and find a guitar that is built with quality materials, there are plenty in this price range.
My LP Studio is for sale, and I am going to buy this guitar. Individually tapped humbucklers, locking tuners, strap locks, and full binding! This is the best Les Paul ever. Gibson quality with a modern touch.I played this guitar today at my local Gibson dealer. It can sound like a Les Paul, a Telecaster or a combo of both. Great quality with all the best components included.I am not a fan of the flames and mirrors, but will learn to live with it. I only wish it came in basic black.
The looks of the Phantom Black is the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen. I love the combination of black and chrome.The sound is great. Then combining the sound and sustain with the posibilities provided by the coil-splitting makes the Gibson Les Paul GT a cut above the most guitars.The downside with this guitar, and many other LPs I've tried, is the size of the heel. It makes it hard to reach the high frets.When I bought the guitar I was about to buy the ESP Eclipse Paul Landers. The guitars offer different sounds. Both great, but for me the choise became easy once I got my hands on the Gibson.
The Les Paul GT marks a high point in Gibson's new factory productions. It's marketed 100% accurately as well. It delivers on everything it promises. If you're as much a tone hound as I am you'll love the double split coil push/pull hooked humbuckers. It's basically a Les Paul with all the modifications you want... here's hoping next years gets phase switching as well.
