This Gibson Les Paul Traditional High Performance package is built with a fast-access neck heel, a G-Force electronic tuning system, a soloist neck width, gold played multi-contact output jack, titanium saddles, and a noiseless toggle switch.  

The Les Paul Traditional 2016 is based on the same build and materials that brought the Les Paul to prominence some 60 years ago. Non-chambered, solid mahogany body set with ’57 Classic/Classic Plus humbuckers provides the thick, heavy tone we’ve come to love.

The Les Paul

One of the landmarks in music history, guitar legend and musical innovator Les Paul was working at the old Epiphone factory in New York City when he dreamt of the first solid body electric guitar. He spent 15 years developing his instrument, and in the late 50’s, the Gibson and Ephiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan created the very first Les Paul Standard. Early on it garnered the attention of Rolling Stones' guitarists Keith Richards and Eric Clapton of Cream, as it was capable of sustain and overdriven tones not possible in other instruments at the time. Over 60 years later it's continues to attract musicians from season professionals to young, budding rock stars.


Hand-crafted in the USA in the time-honored tradition of American craftsmanship, Gibson guitars represent a cornerstone of our collective history. Whether you’re investing in an heirloom for future generations to cherish, or searching for the thrill of a high-performance instrument, Gibson USA’s 2016 lineup represents the best guitars ever created. Play the guitar you’ve always wanted. You’ve earned it.
