OVERVIEW

The mythical Les Paul.

The Les Paul guitar that established the legend, with the power, look, and feel of the world’s most desirable dual-humbucker electric guitar. The Les Paul Traditional retains the archetypal feel of the vintage Les Paul guitars in its rounded neck profile, solid rosewood  fingerboard and non-weight relieved body.

Traditional looks are complemented by the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany body and AA figured maple top, vintage style tuners and ABR bridge and nickel-plated hardware. Classic PAF tones are enhanced by hand-wired electronics including Orange Drop capacitors. Includes hardshell case.

      Nice guitar, well made and sounds good.
      I play clean so I need good PUPS. BB 1&2 are good

        Comments about Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2018 Electric Guitar:

        My fifth and favorite Les Paul to date! The pickups are great, the chunky neck feels great in my oversized hands, the heft is wonderful if you are looking for a heavier guitar, and the finish is superb! I absolutely love the honeyburst and the flame top is beautifully figured. There was a bit of overspray on the edges of the fret board under the E strings from the nut to the fourth fret and the action was a bit high for my taste but I always expect to have to set that myself. If you want a Les Paul that feels like a 50's vintage without dropping the cash for a reissue this is it!

          Comments about Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2018 Electric Guitar:

          I've been in the market for a Gibson Les Paul for about 8 months, trying different models and searching for "the one". After testing out a Traditional I decided that this is it.

          Comparing it to my Epiphone Les Paul, it upgrades every component, is cosmetically better looking and you know you're getting a quality piece of equipment. While the Epiphone has been a great introduction into Las Paul's, the Gibson just feels that much better (not that the Epiphone doesn't play well...it does).

          With a solid feel and a nice heavy sustain when plugged in, I put this guitar through the paces. It's definitely not one of those weight relief Les Paul's. It holds up great when Comparing it to my Brazilian Swamp Ash PRS, sounds great for all styles of music, looks the part...what can I say? I'm in love.

          I will cherish this guitar for a long time. It's the best guitar in my arsenal, taking up as my #1 over my PRS and definitely worth the extra money.
