2011 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Ebony Gloss w/ 57 Classic PAFs, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2011 Gibson Les Paul Traditional in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hardshell case. This Les Paul Traditional features a ‘50s-style neck carve, nitro lacquer gloss Ebony finish, and ‘57 Classic PAF humbuckers.

The traditional tonewood complement comprises a mahogany body, maple top, and mahogany neck capped with a bound rosewood fretboard, and this Les Paul weighs 8lbs 13oz. Featuring Alnico II magnets, the ‘57 Classic PAF pickups have a smooth, airy treble response with a touch of growl. The neck pickup delivers a sweetness and bell-like top end that's great for retaining clarity on solos and complex rhythm work, while the bridge pickup (a 57 Classic+) has more midrange aggression and treble bite. This Les Paul Traditional has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
