The Les Paul Classic 2017 echoes the '60s and '70s while adding modern upgrades for tone and playability with weight relief for hours-long playing comfort. The solid-mahogany neck has a fast slim-taper profile, a thicker rosewood fingerboard with 22 super-smooth polished frets for easy bends, and a genuine nylon nut. Zebra '57 Classic humbuckers with orange drop tone caps ensure sultry PAF-like voicings, while a nickel wired ABR bridge and aluminum stop bar combine for solid sustain. Gibson USA gently rolls the fingerboard binding for a neck that never felt so good, and Grover locking kidney tuners provide an accurate and long-lasting performance. Gold speed knobs make on-stage adjustments fast and precise.

I had the chance to play a few new 2017 Les Paul's over the weekend. Gibson has done a few things right here. We are back to hand wired electronics. Gibson did something incredibly well in adding the tone pros avr bridge as opposed to the terrible tone robbing Nashville tune o matic. Also the classic is about as good as these have been since the 1990's. Although I am not a super fan of the locking tuners, there is a lot to smile about on these guitars. I also noticed the nuts and workmanship around them this year to be much better. Hands down this is the best value given in a Gibson USA guitar since 2013.

Couldn't decide between the classic and the standard...Ended up buying the classic because i couldn't justify paying over $1000 more for the standard and I prefer the 57 classics over burstbuckers. It was set up perfectly out of the box...Incredible playability, sounds amazing, and looks fantastic. If coil tapping and phase reverse aren't important to you and you want to save some money without compromising quality, go for the classic!
