2017 Gibson Les Paul Classic Goldtop with Bigsby


Summary:   A gorgeous gold top with modern features on a 60’s styled Les. The Les Paul Classic 2017 T riffs on the beloved guitars of the ’60s and ’70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability, yielding a true Classic with contemporary twists.

Body:  A Grade-A plain maple top on a mahogany back with 9-hole weight relief combine for subtle beauty with enhanced resonance and superb playing comfort.

Neck: The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut.

Pickups/Hardware: Zebra ’57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a nickel wired ABR bridge and aluminum stopbar combine for solid sustain.  Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs add an elegant touch. Delivered in a classic Gibson brown hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.

Cosmetics:  This 2017 Gibson is in great shape & shows very little wear – the plastic is still on the pickguard! I did notice that the bridge cream colored pickup ring is cracked but that is the only problem that I found while inspecting this instrument.

Playability:  This guitar plays & sounds awesome. This instrument has been fully set up with 10’s by our in-house technician & it plays with no buzzing & no dead spots. The action is low & this Gibson is ready to be played & loved.
