Gibson

Description

Take the classic Les Paul design and update it for modern players and you have the Les Paul Modern. Featuring an ultra-modern weight-relieved mahogany body with maple top and asymmetric SlimTaper mahogany neck with compound-radius ebony fingerboard, it's fast and comfortable with ample sustain. The contoured neck heel makes upper fret access easier than ever. BurstBucker Pro and Pro+ pickups with coil taps and full range of voicing options on push/pull tone and volume knobs give you all the tonal variety you could want. The shape is traditional, but the sonics are ready to shape the future.
