Among the Gibson USA vintage Les Paul models, two big groups exist - Tribute models which are dedicated to a specific period or model, and Tribute models which take from various historic models and eras to create a unique vintage-modern experience. 2016 Traditional model comes in 2016T (T stands for traditional specs) and 2016 HP (high performance). Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP is a modern guitar with vintage tone and looks, but modern playability and construction.
Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP comes with a weight-relieved mahogany body with AAA grade flamed maple cap on top. Mahogany base features the classic nine hole weight relief system and is made of either one or two pieces of wood. Traditionally, the creme-bound top is made of two matching pieces of flamed maple. Set in mahogany neck features a contoured heel, traditional LP profile and is topped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard (medium jumbo frets trapezoid inlays, 1.745" zero fret nut, 12" radius).
57 Classic pickups, found in the bridge and neck positions, are modeled after the legendary 1957 Seth Lover`s PAF humbuckers. Together with the classic LP controls unit, these bad boys deliver all the awesomeness LPs of the yesteryear were loved and respected. New generation of Robotic G Force tuners, two-piece bridge with titanium saddles, gold-plated output jack, noiseless pickup switch and contoured neck heel give a very modern feel and make easier and more fun to play this six-string marvel. Hefty $2,649 price tag might be the only feature of this year`s High Performance Traditional LP we at Chorder are not absolutely delighted with, though every penny invested into this beauty is a penny more than well spent.
