The 2016 Traditional Series from Gibson USA represents a comprehensive regrouping of classic specifications for those who appreciate old-school looks and feel in tier electric guitars, and no model better encompasses the marriage of history and innovation than the Les Paul Standard 2016 T.
- The guitar has a carved plain or Grade-AAA maple top, a mahogany back with modern weight relief, a glued-in mahogany neck with traditional width and heel.
- A traditionally cut Graph Tech nut, and a thick, dark, one-piece rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlays. The neck has a Slim Taper profile while the fingerboard has a compound radius for easy chording down low and unbridled bending up high.
- The two Burst bucker Pro pickups have coil splitting on a push-pull volume knobs for single-coil tones, and locking Grover tuners provide rock-solid performance with a traditional look.
