Gibson

Description

The Gibson Les Paul Classic combines the early 60's style Les Paul model with some functional and time-tested modifcations. As expected, The LP Classic is crafted with a mahogany back and maple top coupled with a slim taper mahogany neck and bound, rosewood fingerboard. Burstbucker 61R & 61T zebra, open-coil pickups provide classic Gibson tones from the era with a bit of extra punch thanks to the open coils. The control assembly features four push-pull pots which provide choices of coil tapping, phase switching and pure bypassing for functional and versatile sonic variety.
