The Les Paul Signature “T” wraps all of Les Paul’s legendary innovation into a sweet looking and great sounding Les Paul that honors the memory of this legendary guitar’s inventor, while providing an instrument primed for the power and versatility demanded by today’s gigging guitarist!
Traditional tonewoods coupled with emphasis on enhanced playing comfort and two of Gibson’s finest PAF-style humbucking pickups, with upgraded switching for bonus single-coil tones. The classic look of the Ebony high-gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish and accented beautifully with Gold hardware, cream body & neck binding and matching pickguard is simply elegant!
The Les Paul Signature “T” is built on a foundation of the same traditional tonewood combination that helped to make the Les Paul Standard legendary. A carved solid Grade-AA figured maple top lends bite and articulation to the sound, while a select mahogany back treated with Gibson’s traditional weight relief to increase playing comfort and enhance resonance contributes superb warmth & depth. A solid, quartersawn mahogany neck is glued in and carved in the fast 60s SlimTaper™ profile, and topped with a rich brown Grade A Granadillo fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional trapezoid inlays then PLEK’d to ensure the new Les Paul Signature T plays just like the greatest Les Pauls ever!
For a blend of vintage tone and modern versatility, the Les Paul Signature “T” is loaded with a pair of Gibson’s ’57 Classic™ pickups, mounted “open coil” for a subtle hotrod look. Both are made in the image of the hallowed PAF humbucker of the late 1950s with Alnico II magnets in the neck position for plenty of warmth and clarity, and in the bridge position, the ’57 Classic Plus™ which features slightly over-wound coils for juicy crunch and wailing lead tones. Both pickups are wax potted, too, to avoid microphonic squeal at high volume levels. Both pickups feature push-pull tone controls which provide coil splitting for authentic single-coil tones.
Traditional touches include cream body and fingerboard binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, along with gold Speed Knobs and a black bell truss rod cover with commemorative “T” engraving. Each guitar comes protected in a white plush lined Gibson hardshell case with black exterior, an owner’s manual, and truss-rod wrench.
