Another year, another fantastic addition to the Les Paul Classic legacy! 2017 sees Gibson really start to push the boundaries for their best-selling Electric Guitar series. Virtually everything on this High Performance guitar has been upgraded, from the Grade-A flamed maple top to the chromed hardware with titanium bridge saddles, from the G FORCE tuners to the powerful PAF-style pickups, and that's before even getting into the whopping 150 sonic combinations available from our new wiring system.
Classic LP with Flamed Maple Top and HP hardware package.
Aesthetically, the Classic HP 2017 features an upgraded Flamed Grade-A Maple top - a deluxe feature often reserved for their high end Custom Shop models. The Classic mahogany body remains, with 9-hole weight relief for a comfortable action. Add to this the exclusive Fast-Access heel and supremely playable Soloist's neck width, and you have a decidedly future Classic without sacrificing that evocative Les Paul styling.
As with all Gibson High Performance models, the LP Classic 2017 gets a revamped hardware system including an aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stop Bar Tailpiece, titanium saddles and locking steel studs to match. The G-Force tuning system has also undergone recent improvements for better stability and reliability when you need it most. Comes shipped in a premium HP Aluminium Case, leather strap, multi-tool and polishing cloth.
