First introduced in 1952 by Gibson, the Les Paul guitar has found its way to the hands of countless legendary players since its inception, including Jimmy Page, Slash and Joe Perry. For a contemporary, harder-edged version of the Les Paul you've come to know and love, you're definitely in the right catalog. Here, you'll discover an impressive variety of Les Paul Classic Guitars that were constructed with the modern rocker in mind, but without losing any of the "classic" appointments that made the guitar so admired to begin with.
For a perfect idea of what this section is all about, you don't need to look any further than the Gibson 2015 Les Paul Classic SR. Available in your choice of a Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Vintage Sunburst or Seafoam Green finish, these limited edition axes feature vintage-style tuning machines and a timeless original Gibson neck. Armed with a '57 Classic pickup at the neck and a Super '57 Classic pickup at the bridge, this top-selling six-string is a powerhouse that delivers a raunchy attack that would impress any loud and proud rocker.
Now for those of you who prefer the look and feel of a double cutaway, turn your attention to the Gibson Les Paul Classic Double Cutaway Electric Guitar in Transparent Red. As a part of Gibson USA's 120th Anniversary Celebrations, this axe is a modernized take on the immortal Les Paul Standard. From its easy upper-fret access to Grade-A mahogany neck carved to a slim profile, everything about the look of this double cutaway guitar screams masterpiece. On top of everything else, the Burst Bucker Rhythm Pro neck pickup and the Burst Bucker Led Pro bridge pickup offer unmatched PAF-style tone and versatility.
While you're at it, be sure to browse the inventory of used Les Paul Classic guitars as well; new additions are always being made, so you never know what might show up. In the instrument world, the word "classic" gets tossed around more often than it should. Of course, some things are deserving of that moniker more so than others - and the Les Paul is an excellent example of an instrument that will forever remain in a class of its own.
