About Gibson Les Paul Traditional

The Gibson Les Paul Traditional, or 'T' model, refers to a distinction made by Gibson USA about modern era Les Paul guitars. Compared with other modern Les Pauls, the Traditional is, for many, a Gibson Les Paul made as they used to be in the good old days. It is a full weight Mahogany body with no weight relief chambers and a 'rounded' neck profile. It has a straightforward circuit with no extra hidden functions.

This is what you may consider a 'vintage-style' Les Paul. It is Traditional by name and traditional by nature which is music to the ears of many Gibson fans! The Les Paul Traditional is available in a range of burst finishes, all of which look beautiful on top of the figured maple top.
