Gibson have revealed, separate to its previous 2015 offerings, a 7-String Les Paul Classic.

No longer are 7-strings restricted to Gibson's Flying V and Explorer guitars, as the Les Paul Classic 7-String with versatile electronics has been announced.

The iconic Les Paul look remains, and the new 7-String model also features a mahogany body with carved maple top, with mahogany slim taper neck, rosewood fingerboard and slightly controversial 24.75" scale length.

Whether you're after a low-string riff to high-fret wailing, there's an onboard 15dB mini-toggle Turbo Boost. The Les Paul Classic 7-String comes equipped with Seymour Duncan '59 and JB humbuckers.

Gibson have chosen Ebony for the finish, and have included an official Gibson brown hardshell case. It's expected to retail for around £1550.
