All the sumptuous ingredients that made the Les Paul name great are in the Gibson Les Paul Classic Plus '50s Neck Profile Electric Guitar in spades: a skillfully carved maple top on a mahogany back perfectly joined to a mahogany neck powered by a 496R ceramic humbucker in the front and a 500T at the bridge. The Les Paul Classic Plus '50s Neck Profile is available for a limited time in a series of four beautiful transparent nitro lacquer finishes over AA figured maple tops. With high-output ceramic pickups, neck and body binding, this is is a real bargain in a full-featured, loaded Les Paul and now features the enhanced articulation of a Baked Maple fingerboard.
The Gibson 496R humbucker is a smokin’ neck pickup with incredible sustain and cutting power. The high-output ceramic magnet adds more highs with increased definition and no muddiness. The 500T bridge humbucker has a powerful multi-ceramic magnet structure enables this monster to cover lots of territory. It can scream or growl – never losing its rich combination of enhanced lows and crystal-clear highs.
Aging maple through a “baking” process called torrefaction. The wood is kept at 200-300º F for a period of time until the wood knows it’s no longer a tree; Moisture is restored under pressure. This makes the wood very hard, sonically “live” and extremely stable. The snappy sound of ebony, with the look of medium-brown pau ferro. Many boutique manufacturers are now using this because it improves the wood with no chemical treatment, it’s environmentally friendly and is great for making better sounding and playing guitars!

At $1899 buying this guitar is almost like stealing! Beautiful instrument with great tone, and it's LOUD! Usually, high-output pickups sound trebly or overly mid-rangy, but these pickups sound nice and smooth, round, and full range - with good clarity. The bridge pickup's tone is perfect for Don Felder's first solo in Hotel California, nice and FAT. The neck pickup has a nice a round tone too - for jazz or blues, and without being muddy. The mid-pickup position is my favorite for blues and jazz. This is a fantastic guitar, along with the L6-S reissue (I have both), I am convinced that Gibson "get's it"!
I just received this guitar in the mail and it blew me away. The blue is gorgeous. It's super smooth to play. Has a very nice feel to it. The pick ups sound great. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I would recommend it to anyone.
