What we say:

For Les Paul fans who are fond of the classic models of the past, this new 2018 Traditional should make you smile. A sister model to the 2018 Standard, it is like the opposite side of the same coin, with features that eschew modernity in favour of halcyon classic era Les Pauls.

For a start, the body is not weight relieved, something that has proven quite divisive amongst Gibson acolytes. So, its solid Mahogany with a AA figured maple top, finished in a tasteful choice of finishes (this one is Cherry Red Translucent) and given the customary nitrocellulose lacquer for a vintage look and touch.

The Mahogany neck is 'rounded' rather than asymmetrical and has a profile comparable to the 50s necks of previous iterations of the Standard. It's good and chunky with a very ‘substantial’ feel that lots of players love. A 12" fretboard radius and vintage styled tuners complete the look in the correct manner.

Moving on to the electronics, we have a pair of Burstbucker pickups here (a '1' model and a '2' model) which impart a lively tone with an extra snappiness that complements the Mahogany very well and balances the famous thickness. Hand-wired electronics (including 'Orange Drop' capacitors) accentuate the vintage spec and offer good value.

Gibson have listened to their customers and delivered two distinct takes on their most classic guitar for 2018: whether you pick this or the Standard, you'll be choosing wisely.
