Guitarra Gibson Les Paul Classic semi-nova
The Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic is the latest version of this legendary guitar and is part of the 120 year anniversary range. Hand crafted in U.S.A, the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic looks to be a carbon copy of the Gibson Les Paul Standard model but closer inspection unveils some great new design features.
Crafted from mahogany with a figured maple top, the body of the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic has an extremely desirable look. What you will instantly notice when you pick this guitar up is the difference in weight to previous models. Gibson have used what they call "traditional weight relief". Basically this means the mahogany body is chambered to reduce the weight thus creating a much lighter feel when the guitar is strapped on. The glued-in neck is once again made from mahogany and has a 1960's slim taper profile carrying a bound rosewood fingerboard.
As far as pickups are concerned the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic carries two Gibson humbuckers. A '57 Classic is used in the neck position and a hotter Super '57 in the bridge. The volume of both pickups can be independently controlled with push-pull coil splitting, a built-in 15 dB boost on a mini-toggle switch, a master tone pot with Orange Drop capacitor, and a three-way selector switch. When it comes to tonal versatility the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic is hard to beat.
A chrome Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece give the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic outstanding resonance and sustain, while vintage TonePros tuners provide outstanding string stability. Enlarged strap buttons are a new feature for the Gibson 2014 Les Paul Classic and they keep your guitar strap very secure. This may seem like a small detail but it will give you a lot more confidence especially if you are playing live . Vintage cream binding, pickguard, and pickup rings provide a visual link to the Les Pauls of the '50s, while new Supreme Grip gold speed knobs keep you sure-fingered on the controls.
