Overview

The Les Paul Classic 2017 T riffs on the beloved guitars of the '60s and '70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability, yielding a true Classic with contemporary twists. A Grade-A plain maple top on a mahogany back with 9-hole weight relief combine for subtle beauty with enhanced resonance and superb playing comfort. The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut. Zebra '57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a nickel wired ABR bridge and aluminum stop bar combine for solid sustain. Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs add an elegant touch. Delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

Great Guitar!

Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

I was at GC looking at the LP "Classic" and the LP "Studio Deluxe IV". I bought the Studio which is a great playing guitar but kept thinking about the Classic with that nice binding and smoother fretboard. After a week I returned the Studio for the Classic and the $500.00 additional price is worth it. This piece plays and sounds so nice I couldn't happier.

Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

Higher end features at an entry level price. Playability and function. Priced for transport but quality to perform. The Fretboard polished and polished. I set the Grover Locking Tuners then got after it. They stayed dead on. The Zebra 57's have always been one of my favorites. Started at zero on all the knobs and worked my way up. Significant changes at every turn. I think dollar for dollar Gibsons best value. I wanted the crazy green for a change. The color, fit and finish are more than respectable. I always like the performing artists series. Needed quality for serious individuals at an affordable price.

      Mine showed up with a clear maple top. The finish has a real depth to it. Plays exactly like you would expect from a Les Paul. I play and collect interesting guitars and this one is really a looker.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

      I enjoy playing this guitar and find it hard to put down. The gold top with the zebra 57' humbuckers looks great. The craftsmanship is one of quality, which really shows when playing this beauty of an instrument.

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

      In the past I've owned a few Les Paul's but they always needed something done to them....This guitar is perfect... Great playing neck and the pickup's sound very good clean and distorted.... The only adjustment I had to make was on my strap going from a Strat to the Les Paul.... This guitar is worth every cent...

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

      I have a number of Gibsons but finally decided to buy a nice Les Paul. I bought a goldtop. This is a beautiful guitar and it plays and sounds terrific! Clean or distorted it is absolutely wonderful. No fancy electronics, just pure classic Les Paul appointments.

      Not like my other LP's that's for sure. Needless to say, I played it boxed it up and have it ready for GC to sell it as an open box special. The new cases are very cheap! Also, contacting Gibson is a joke. They don't care.....after all, they are Gibson the number one US guitar maker!

          Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

          The rhythm/treble ring to me is one of the nicer aesthetics of a Paul. It doesn't say. "lead", it says "treble" . i just think that is a great aspect.really cool. Treble! That's great!

              Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Classic T Electric Guitar:

              If you're looking for the traditional Les Paul design (what the Standard used to be), with a few little tweaks that everyone winds up doing anyway, try one of these. Standard neck joint, hand-wired, quality electronics, great craftsmanship. Ridiculous tone and sustain. Great feeling 60s neck, and lighter with the 9-hole routing--very comfortable to play standing. Nice tweaks are the nylon nut, the locking Grovers, larger strap buttons, and the fact that they've PLEKd the fretboard. The thing rings like a bell unplugged, and the Classic 57's have a tiny bit more growl while still keeping the classic LP sound. This is a wonderful guitar to play, and it's worth noting that it was very consistent with all of the ones I tried at GC before making my purchase. I literally made my decision based solely on appearance, that's how uniformly awesome they all were. I'd say that they've brought the QC up a notch at Gibson, and I'm a very happy beneficiary. You will want to condition the fretboard, as Gibson's rosewood seems to be getting a little dry these days, but some lemon oil with bling it up very nicely. I got this in August when they had the big sale and I've been playing it for over a month now. It's settling in great, and is definitely a keeper.
