Lean, stripped-down, and ready for action—this is the essential Les Paul that boosts the sweet roar of the single Classic ‘61 humbucker with an array of our signature HP series features, with no unnecessary clutter to get in the way of your riffing.

A new and exclusive fast-access heel, developed specifically for the Gibson USA High Performance lineup, allows unprecedented access to the high notes - which, combined with the new soloist neck width, provides the fastest and most comfortable Les Paul neck you’ve ever played.

Titanium metal for the saddles and the adjustable zero-fret nut delivers a bright, crisp tone, while being virtually indestructible and ensuring total, personalized control over the action. Play it. Rock it. Love it. Includes gig bag.
