From its solid (non-weight-relieved) mahogany body and carved AA figured maple top, to its rounded late-’50s neck profile, to its two ’59 Tribute humbucking pickups (new for 2014), to its cream binding and gold Speed Knobs, the Les Paul Traditional totally nails the tone and feel of the legendary Les Pauls of the late ’50s.
The Les Paul Traditional is crafted in the image of the original Les Paul Standard. It’s made from a solid mahogany back with no weight relief for a solid and sustaining tone, with a carved AA figured maple top; the glued-in mahogany neck features a comfortably rounded late-’50s profile. The bound rosewood fingerboard is topped with a TekToid nut to minimize friction, carries 22 cryogenically treated frets for long life and corrosion resistance, and incorporates traditional trapezoid inlays with a commemorative 120th Anniversary inlay at the 12th fret.
The guitar carries a pair of Gibson’s new ’59 Tribute humbucking pickups, which resurrect the legendary PAF humbuckers of the late ’50s. They’re wired through the traditional four-knob control section and three-way selector switch, with Orange Drop capacitors on the tone pots.
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor it all down for outstanding resonance and sustain, while TonePros vintage tuners maintain a traditional look up top. Enlarged strap buttons (new for 2014) keep your guitar secure throughout the set. Vintage-cream binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, with gold Speed Knobs, provide a further visual link to the Les Pauls of the ’50s.
The Les Paul Traditional comes protected in a vintage-brown Gibson hardshell case with pink lining and includes a truss-rod wrench and owner’s manual.
Gibson USA continues the tradition of innovation, premium quality, and made-in-America hand-craftsmanship that started in 1894. Although their flagship Les Paul is the most iconic guitar in history, other innovative guitars and basses have become standards in their own right—like the SG, Explorer, Flying V, and Firebird. Gibson instruments are truly “American made, world played. ”
