A future Classic
While its looks and legendary design are truly Classic, the Les Paul Classic 2017 HP is one of the most forward-looking guitars we have ever produced, focused on creating an utterly new ""Classic"" rather than staying mired in the past. Virtually everything on this High Performance guitar has been upgraded, from the Grade-A flamed maple top to the chromed hardware with titanium bridge saddles, from the G FORCE™ tuners to the powerful PAF-style pickups, and that's before even getting into the whopping 150 sonic combinations available from our new wiring system. Add to this our exclusive Fast-Access heel and supremely playable Soloist's neck width, and you have a decidedly future Classic right in front our your eyes—without sacrificing one ounce of that evocative Les Paul styling.
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."
