Gibson '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus Humbuckers

Loaded with '57 Classic and '57 Classic Plus humbucking pickups, the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP produces a warm, smooth sound while faithfully recreating the iconic ''PAF'' tone. Having become synonymous with the highly sought after sound of vintage Gibson guitars, the '57 Classic humbuckers offer a crunchy high gain tone at the bridge and a balanced response with classic crunch at the neck. Constructed from alnico II magnets, traditional neck winding, an overwound bridge and featuring two conductor wiring, these humbucking pickups are made to the exact same specifications as the original ''PAF'' pickups.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Additionally adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge. Simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action and screw in or out the bridge saddles to achieve perfect intonation.

Professionally Set-Up Straight out the Box

Gibson understand how disheartening it can be when you get a new guitar home just to find out it needs setting up before you can properly reap the benefits. By ensuring that every Gibson 2016 model comes professionally set up straight out the box you can plug in and play to start enjoying the premium build quality and incredible tone of the Gibson 2016 models.
