Gibson

Description

Mysteriously stealthy, the Gibson "Dark Knight" Les Paul has an understated beauty, with a translucent smoke-black satin finish over the intricately figured quilted maple top. The mahogany body bears modern weight relief to keep it lightweight. Gibson '57 Classic and Classic Plus humbuckers provide the muscle, and the Nashville-style tune-o-matic bridge and locking tuners make sure everything stays in tune. Matte-black hardware and an ebony fingerboard add the final, subtle touches to the somber aura of this stunning instrument. Includes hardshell case.
