The Les Paul Classic HP is a natural evolution of Gibson's best seller. - one of the truly great electric guitars, revamped for 2017 with a High Performance feature set. In terms of tone, the Classic HP is arguably one of Gibson's most versatile to date, thanks to a brand new wiring system that offers an incredible 150 sonic combinations. Classic '57 humbuckers with Push/Pull coil tap and 5-position DIP switch offers unrivalled tone control, on top of dedicated volume and tone knobs to experiment with.
A tried and tested formula for success - with Pro HP features.
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.
