Gibson

collapse expand iconDescription

While the Gibson Trad Pro V electric guitar shares a lot of characteristics as a classic Les Paul, it’s an instrument that’s all its own. Featuring a mahogany body and neck with a carved maple top—like the Les Paul—the Gibson Trad Pro V also features a weight-relieved body, which makes it super comfortable to play and hold. You’ll be able to sling it on your shoulder with ease. The neck also has an asymmetrical shape that fits in your hand like a glove. With the compound radius on the rosewood fretboard, you’ll find it easier to land those solos in higher registers. Feel and hear the difference with the Gibson Trad Pro V electric guitar.

Weight-Relieved Mahogany Body

One of the most attractive benefits of the Gibson Trad Pro V electric guitar is its weight-relieved body. This design makes it super comfortable to play and sling over your shoulder.

Tradbucker Pickups Pack a Punch

The Gibson Trad Pro V is loaded with a pair of Tradbucker pickups that really pack a punch. In the neck position, the humbucker is underwound, which produces a warm and organic sound. In contrast, the pickup in the bridge position is overwound, which increases the output. With accompanying Alnico V magnets and a push/pull that performs a coil split or a coil tap, you can tweak your tones to your heart’s desire. When you’re in coil-split mode, the treble tone push/pull toggles between the inner and outer coils. Alternatively, the rhythm tone push/pull will activate a phase switch, which is ideal when your tone pool is filled with deep British blues. 

Comfortable Playability

Adding to its easy playability is the neck, which has an asymmetrical shape so it fits like a glove in your hand. The compound radius rosewood fretboard also makes it easier to solo in higher registers. A hardshell case is included.
