Classic Les Paul Looks

The new 2017 Les Paul Classic HP offers an iconic appearance with modifications for the modern player. Packed with a full host of classic features including the basic four control knob layout, Mother of Pearl trapezoids, rosewood fingerboard, aluminum stop bar with steel locking studs, and a mahogany body topped with A grade flame maple. Overall, this stunning instrument wears its Gibson name with pride.

Ultra Modern Weight Relief Offers Comfort & Sustain

As many guitarists know, the weight of a guitar is extremely important in terms of comfort, Gibson have found a solution to this renowned weight issue and now feature an ultra-modern weight relief chambered body for comfort and enhanced resonance. This weight-relief process involves routing nine round holes in the mahogany body before the stunning maple top is attached. These holes are strategically placed in the lower bouts on the bass-side of the guitar, offering you a comfortable-lightweight guitar that can be played all night long.

Slim Taper Neck is Ideal For Smaller Hands

As with many new Gibson models, the 2017 Les Paul Classic HP is crafted with a speedy slim tapered neck profile that is ideal for players with smaller hands, or younger players. This slim tapered mahogany neck also makes it easier and more ergonomic to reach certain chords, as it allows the players fingers to be perpendicular to the fingerboard, overall giving you more accuracy and clarity. Not only does it provide fluid hand flexibility, the mahogany neck is fused to the mahogany body using a mortise an tenon joint, and a provides a fast-access neck heel for playing fast solos.

Equipped with '57 Classic Humbuckers For a PAF Tone

The new 2017 Les Paul features a set of '57 classic humbuckers, which provide a warm, full tone with a balanced response, delivering that sought after PAF humbucker crunch. These classic humbuckers are made to the exact same specifications as the original PAFs, including Alnico II magnets, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers, and vintage-style, two-conductor braided wiring. The pickups are also wax potted to remove all internal air space and any chance of undesirable microphonic feedback. Controlling these pickups is easy, with the two volume and two tone control knobs, along with the DIP switch, which gives you incomparable control over your tone.

G Force Auto-Tuning System with Smooth & Silent Gears

As well as looks and tone, the new Les Paul Classic HP also features the G force self tuning system, which is an innovative system worked by a mechanical device that is secured to the headstock. Each machine head contains a small servo motor that can wind the string up or down. Simply push the on button and strum to see this device in action and perfectly tune your guitar. The new Gibson HP models all feature an updated G Force system, with even smoother and more silent gears.

Not only does the G force tuning system provide standard tunings, it also offers alternate and custom tunings, tuning to instruments that are in tune with themselves but not to concert pitch, adding pitch offsets to individual strings, and tuning with a capo. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the G force system provides up to 100 tunings on one single charge, and also allows for manual tuning.

Titanium Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut

Not only does the new Les Paul Classic HP provide the perfect combination of tone and looks, it is also equipped with an innovative Nut. The Zero-Fret Adjustable Nut is a superior nut design in Gibson’s High-Performance series of guitars, due to its exceptional adjustability to match various playing styles. This cleverly designed Nut benefits from an all-titanium construction for extreme durability, and a retaining screw so the nut stays in place when you change strings. Like with bridge adjustments, the Zero-Fret Nut allows you to adjust the height and angle, for the optimum feel.

Aluminium Tune-O-Matic Bridge

As with many of the new Gibson models, the 2017 Les Paul Classic HP also features an Aluminium Tune-O-Matic bridge. This type of bridge is an extremely popular fixed bridge due to its stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge, as you simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action, and screw the bridge saddles in or out to achieve perfect intonation.
