What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

Though this Les Paul might look like a classic, tried-and-true Goldtop from the '50s it's all 21st century under the hood! Featuring coil-splittable humbuckers (controlled by the volume knob push-pull) and true by-pass and phase inversion options (via the tone control push-pulls) there's a whole world of tones at your fingers here. Add on locking tuners, a compound fingerboard radius, and Gibson's Burstbucker pickups, for modern style without sacrificing classic looks!

About Manufacturer

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
