The Gibson Les Paul Traditional Heritage Cherry Sunburst 2015 is a model that's perfect for those who like a more traditional feel on their Les Paul - heavy, thick neck, vintage-style humbuckers. This model is ideal for the player who wants a heavy, traditional Les Paul with a 50's-style feel, with no body rout and late-50's neck thickness. Gibson has never ceased to innovate, but they also recognize the importance of tradition - and this is the proof! However, modern upgrades make this an ideal instrument for the modern players.
When it comes to the pickups it could only be a hallowed 59 vintage that Gibson went for, using unbalanced windings to deliver that unique vintage voice. The humbucker spec has been matched to the originals, with Gibson sourcing every component from the Alnico magnets to the covers.
The one area where the Traditional sees deviation from a vintage original is in the hardware. Using G Force tuners for effortless tuning plus Zero Fret Adjustable Nut to allow perfect action and adjustments to your exact requirements. While Gibson helped define solid body tone they certainly don't rest on their laurels when it comes to innovation.
Key to the traditional feel of this Les Paul is the Rounded XL neck profile, specially developed to give maximum sustain. For many players tone is all in the fingers and vintage LP fans will feel right at home with the 2015 Traditional. The PLEK setup program may have been developed with high tech tools but what it really means for guitarists is a neck that feels like it's been setup by a pro.
