Classic Les Paul Appearance

Like many guitars from Gibson, the Les Paul Faded T Electric Guitar features a full host of iconic appointments that make it worthy to wear the Gibson Les Paul logo. The brand new faded gloss finish offers an authentic road-worn look that can be associated with a guitar that has had decades of use. This vintage-style finish represents the perfect marriage of tradition and modernity, with its modern improvements. As well as the finish, the Faded T Electric Guitar also includes classic Les Paul features including a nickel plated tune-o-matic bridge, aluminium stop bar, vintage style keystone tuners and black top hat control knobs.

Lightweight Body

Crafted with a mahogany body, and topped in maple, the Faded T Electric Guitar features 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 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

The Les Paul Faded T Electric Guitar not only offers a comfortable body, but also provides a slim tapered neck profile. This maple neck offers the ultimate comfort with its slim profile, and allows for fast and comfortable soloing. As well as providing fluid hand flexibility, the maple neck is fused to the mahogany body using a mortise an tenon joint, and a provides a vintage-style neck heel and the ultimate resonance.

TekToid Nut

Gibson has begun using TekToid graphite nuts on all of the guitars they build, as it offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range perfect for a rich and detailed tone. TekToid Graphite is the best high-tech cure for eliminating undesirable friction within the nut, which can cause tuning problems. It is the ideal choice for a guitar nut, as it has excellent conductive qualities, which overall benefit a guitar’s tone and sustain.

Humbuckers

Incorporating a set of 490R and 490T humbucking pickups designed to recreate the tone of the classic Gibson PAF pickups, the Les Paul Studio Faded T produces a rich vintage tone that can be used in many different types of music. Both pickups deliver a moderately high output, and also add to the sustain and resonance of the lightweight body. Controlling these pickups is easier, with the classic top-hat control knobs of volume and tone, along with a toggle switch.

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.
