Overview

The Les Paul Traditional Pro with Tapped P-90s is crafted with all the classic ingredients that helped to make this model a legend in the first place. A carved maple top contributes clarity and sustain, while a modern weight relievied mahogany body adds depth and richness. A solid quarter-sawn one-piece mahogany neck is glued in with a traditional mortis & tenon joint, and carved to your choice of Gibson USA's popular '60s-style SlimTaper„¢ profile on the Ebony Black model, or the traditional rounded '50s profile on the Goldtop. Both are topped with a rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets, with a 12" radius for each choke-free bending, the neck culminates in a headstock with the preferred 17-degree backward pitch for improved string pressure in the PLEK-cut Corian nut.

Beyond the look and feel of this great new member of the Les Paul family, a pair of Gibson USA's new Tapped P-90 pickups take the Les Paul Traditional Pro with Tapped P-90s right over the top. A "coil tap" feature usually refers to splitting a humbucking pickup, but in the truer sense of the term these new single-coil units are wound with a "tap wire" that eliminates a portion of the coil, to access a second sound from each pickup. In full mode each pickup sounds like a traditional thick, snarly Alnico V P-90 in its position (approximately 7.0k ohm in the neck position and 8.6k ohm in the bridge), but lift the push-pull switch on each pickup's volume control, and resistance levels drop to 5.0k ohm and 6.0k ohm respectively, for a brighter, sharper single-coil sound that is still rich and authentic, and not as thin as other pickups that are split entirely in half. A great new feature, this pickup makes its debut on the Les Paul Traditional Pro with Tapped P-90s, exclusive from Guitar Center. And for all this versatility, this great new model retains classic appointments such as acrylic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, a mother-of-pearl Gibson headstock logo and silkscreened gold "Les Paul Model", cream binding and pickguard, and vintage amber Top-Hat knobs. Check out the Les Paul Traditional Pro With Tapped P-90s today from Guitar Center, and grab that classic Les Paul tone with some great new twists.

Each guitar comes protected in a plush-lined hardshell case with black exterior, and includes owner's manual and adjustment literature, along with Gibson's Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7/365 customer service.
