Authentic ‘50s Les Paul Recreation
An authentic recreation of the revered ‘50s Les Paul model, the 2019 Les Paul Traditional has been made with a solid Mahogany body that features no weight relief to ensure that authentic ‘50s Les Paul playing feel.
A dense, dark wood, Mahogany gives you a warm tone with nice midrange bite for uniquely complex tone.
The Mahogany body is topped with gorgeous AA Figured Maple that is beautifully shown off through the Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish and is trimmed by a great looking cream binding.
Attached to the body is a Mahogany neck with a rounded profile for that classic and comfortable fretting hand grip with traditional rolled binding adding to the aesthetic and smooth playing experience.
Atop the neck is a traditional solid Rosewood fretboard. The 22 frets have been cryogenically treated so they are more durable and stronger, with much more resistance to wear.
Furthermore, with its 12” radius, the fretboard allows for deep bends without fretting out while the iconic single cutaway body profile of the Les Paul not only looks great but provides easy access to the upper frets – essential for fantastic solos.
Recreating the Original PAF Humbucker
Giving the Les Paul Traditional 2019 its unmistakeable vintage tone is a set of BurstBucker pickups.
Described by Gibson as “Time Machines”, these pickups recreated the unbalanced coil winding found on the original PAF pickups to get that distinctive tonal bite.
The classic two volume, two tone control setup is present allowing for easy dialling in of your perfect tone while a toggle switch allows you to choose which pickups you want to use.
Furthermore, the electronics have been hand-wired and utilise Orange Drop capacitors for that truly authentic ‘50s Les Paul experience.
High Quality Hardware
On the body of the Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2019, you’ll find an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge backed up by an aluminium stopbar for great sustain, precise intonation and that old-school visual.
A self-lubricating Tektoid nut is installed at the top of the neck, providing enhanced sustain and a nice brightness to your tone.
Up on the headstock, a set of Vintage Deluxe tuning machines with keystone buttons allow for precise tuning of your strings.
