The Les Paul you Grew Up Loving in an exciting transparent black finish.
The Gibson Les Paul Traditional Double Stain electric guitar has all the fat, sweet, snarling Les Paul tone that purists love. This amazing guitar features a AA flamed maple top done is a special double stained transparent black finish on a two-piece mahogany body. This wood combination yields a specific yet versatile tone that many guitarists have come to demand. The one-piece mahogany neck has Gibson's traditional rounded profile, which emulates the neck shapes of the iconic Les Paul Standards of the late 1950s. Rosewood fingerboards and trapezoid inlays have been a mainstay feature on Les Pauls ever since the model's introduction in the 1950s, The resilience of dense and durable rosewood makes these fingerboards extremely balanced and stable, and gives each chord and note unparalleled clarity and bite. Additionally, the 12" radius of the fingerboard provides smooth note bending capabilities and eliminates "dead" or "choked out" notes. The traditional trapezoid inlays are made of figured acrylic, and offer a classic "pearl" look.
The headstock of the Les Paul Traditional Double Stain is equipped with Grover tuners with a gear ratio of 14:1. These tuners deliver precision tuning in a durable housing that provides maximum protection for the gear and string post. The tune-o-matic bridge, sets a standard for simplicity and functionality that has never been bettered. It provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes.
Gibson Burstbucker pickups accurately represent the legendary PAFs of the late '50s and early '60s, and are made with unpolished alnico magnets and coils that are wound with unequal turns of 42-gauge enamel-coated wire to induce that single-coil like bite and edge of the originals. BurstBucker 1 in the neck position has smooth, articulate tones. A BurstBucker 2 in the bridge position has more sting and punching power. The combination excels at everything from singing classic rock lead tones, to contemporary crunch, to extremes of twang and jangle.

I have always loved the look of the boneyard and the appetite for destruction, but they are artist models with limited range of sounds. Like the appetite for destruction would sound like GNR and the boneyard would sound like Aerosmith. I love both, but I like to have my own sound with a guitar not known for an artist and this is a great recreation of both.
