A daring take on tradition Gibson USA has retained the essence of the Les Paul Traditional with a rounded neck profile and no weight relief, while everything else has been upgraded to create a stunning High Performance guitar with luscious late-’50s looks. From the beautifully AAA flamed top to the high-performance hardware, from the upgraded G FORCE™ tuners to the luscious and powerful Burstbucker pickups, this is truly a guitar to do it all. Add to this our exclusive Fast-Access heel, 22 polished frets over the binding, and a remarkable 150 sonic possibilities via our new wiring system, and you will understand how the Les Paul Traditional HP earned its name. Tradition always starts with a first, and you're getting a big one here in this unprecedented blend of history and innovation.
Delivered in a Gibson High Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.
