For Those Who Demand MoreThe new Gibson Les Paul™ Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players have embraced such as a lighter-weight body and innovative SlimTaper™ neck with asymmetrical profile. The Modern fingerboard is crafted with genuine ebony and a compound radius for lower, and cleaner action. The neck/body joint features the new Modern contoured heel for effortless access to the highest frets as well as maximum sustain and stability. Hardware upgrades include Grover® locking Rotomatic® tuners, clear top hat knobs and BurstBucker Pro™ and BurstBucker Pro + pickups. The control assembly features 4 push-pull pots to switch between the Gibson™ humbucker™ and the single coil P90 sounds, both of which have defined so many genres of music across multiple generations since we invented them, phase switching and pure bypass for functional and versatile sonic variety. The new Gibson Les Paul Modern is here to shape sound for future generations.
Ultra-Modern Weight Relief
The latest advancement in maintaining tone with weight relief
Ultra-Modern Weight Relief was developed through a slight yet carefully calculated offsetting of the chambers around the perimeters of the guitar's body to further lighten the load, without degradation in tone. It’s engineered to provide a solid core through the center of the guitar to retain the classic Les Paul sound. Unlike a full chambered design it is less prone to feedback or affecting the tonality and resonance of the guitar.
