What we say:
For the Les Paul fan who wants a modern instrument but who has perhaps more traditional tastes and sensibilities, please allow us to introduce you to the Classic T!
This glossy-topped, satin-backed beauty has a range of features suited to players who want a 'real' Gibson experience in a package that ticks all the boxes including the all important 'Value of Money' box!
The A-grade plain maple top suits the traditional, no-nonsense vibe of the guitar which is otherwise mahogany. An iconic coat of Heritage Cherry Sunburst gives it's customary historic sheen to proceedings too.
A pair of 'zebra' 57 classic humbuckers (a '+' model sits in the bridge position) supply a vintage-style PAF output and tonal character: these are among the most popular pickups Gibson sell to the aftermarket 'upgrades' sector since they are so full of tone and detail. The electronics under the hood are hand-wired and include a set of prestigious Orange Drop capacitors, just like classic vintage Gibsons.
The neck follows a similar thin profile to 60s models: it's thin by Gibson standards but still pleasingly sculpted; in other words, it isn't a speed-freak 80s shred neck by any means! This neck has a bound rosewood fingerboard featuring trapezoid inlays. This doesn't affect the playing per se but it does contribute hugely to the experience of playing and that in turn plays a large part in relating how you approach and enjoy the guitar. This Les Paul Classic T is most certainly a fun guitar to play on, whether you like cracking out huge riffs, blistering solos or something else entirely, this is one of those instruments that will encourage you to do more of it!
