What Haworth Guitars say:
The Gibson Les Paul Classic 2018 Electric Guitar packs a punch. The P-90 pickups have that fat, bitey tone which is made even more apparent with the solid mahogany body with a maple cap. The Gibson LP Classic 2018 Guitar has sustain for days and feels great to play with its slim taper mahogany neck.
We love the 2018 Les Paul Classic by Gibson here at Haworth Guitars and find that the tone sounds crisp and clear with the amp set on clean but also breaks up really nicely with a touch of gain.
What Gibson has to say:
The Les Paul Classic guitar conveys major elements of the iconic Les Paul look with the legendary tonewood combination of a mahogany-and-maple non-weight relief body, bound body top and fingerboard with trapezoid fingerboard inlays.
Fast and comfortable playability is increased with a Slim Taper neck.
Additional appointments include a pair of P-90 pickups, ABR bridge, nickel-plated hardware, and hand-wired electronics including Orange Drop capacitors.
