An All-new Supreme for 20013!Gibson's Les Paul Supreme combines the best of vintage and modern to give you a solidbody electric guitar that sounds, looks, a and plays like a dream. The 2013 Les Paul Supreme sports Gibson's classic mahogany body - with a stunning figured maple top and back, while a pair of 490 humbuckers serve up boatloads of fat, snarling tone and sustain for days. Wrap your hand around the chunky '50s profile neck and you'll feel instantly at home. For breathtaking looks, monumental tone, and incredible playability - you want the Gibson Les Paul Supreme.
Gibson Les Paul Supreme Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The best of both worlds: new and vintage!
In 1958, the Les Paul went from a simple gold-finished, painted top to a cherry sunburst finish over a carved maple two-piece top. The majority of the tops were actually pretty plain, while others - the ones collectors now pay astronomically high prices for - could be found with beautifully figured, two-piece flamed maple tops. Actually, it was the carved top that set the Les Paul apart from the "competition." That continued through the instrument's long and storied history. Now the Les Paul Supreme takes it to the extreme with a carved AAAA maple top and AAA back over a classic mahogany body. The appointments combine both new and vintage flavors for a guitar that can play in any style from country to metal - and anything in between.
That chunky '50s-style neck
The first Les Pauls had huge necks, but by 1960 the neck underwent several modifications until it became what's known as the slim-taper design, which clearly is for wimps, right? If you're going to play a Les Paul, you want something you can actually grab onto. The Supreme's neck carve isn't quite as chunky as some of the originals, but it's fatter - and considerably more satisfying - than the '60s slim-taper design. Of course, the neck is mahogany, so it's absolutely rock solid, and the Richlite fingerboard sports gorgeous pearl split-block inlays. But it still has that warm, classic Les Paul feel, allowing easy access to the upper frets so you can really dig into your solos!
These pickups deliver true Les Paul sound - and then some
The 2013 Les Paul Supreme is packin' heat. Gibson has spec'd this axe with a 490R humbucker in the neck position and a 498T at the bridge. These "Modern Classic" pickups feature tonal characteristics similar to the '57 Classic, but deliver a slight increase in the upper mids, for a more contemporary humbucking sound.
