A gorgeous AAAA maple top ensures that your Les Paul will garner jealous glances whenever you open your guitar case. From Jimmy Page to Slash, generations of guitarists have relied on the Les Paul to deliver their musical message - deliver yours with the Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP solidbody electric guitar.

Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with maple top
  • Extra-wide Soloist neck for high-speed playing
  • Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments
  • Plek'd for precision playability
The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with maple top

Gibson's Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP gives you the robust sustain you need for hot liquid solos and massive power chords. What's Gibson's secret? A major part of the Les Paul's tonewood recipe is the fusion of a maple top on a mahogany body. This combination is largely responsible for the legendary Les Paul sound - as well as the LP's reputation for being rather heavy. But fear not! Before the maple top was attached to the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP, nine holes were strategically routed in the lower bout on the guitar's bass side. The result is a lighter guitar that maintains the solid feel of a non-weight-relieved instrument. So you can enjoy all the sustain, without the strain!

Extra-wide Soloist neck for high-speed playing

If you like the look of a classic Les Paul, but long for a more modern-feeling guitar, you'll love the Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP's comfortable Soloist neck. This extra-wide neck was tailor-made for high-speed soloing, providing you with added width but the same string spacing. A fast-access heel adds to the comfort of this fast-playing neck.

Powerful, punchy pickups plus killer appointments

Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers - a '57 Classic in the neck position and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge - give the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups. At Sweetwater, we really dig the Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP's premium, high-performance appointments, including Supreme Grip speed knobs, next-generation G-Force tuners, a titanium adjustable zero-fret nut, and a chrome Tune-o-matic bridge with titanium saddles and stopbar.

Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 HP feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.
