Gibson believes that, created to meet players' demands for a guitar with the specs of the great Les Pauls that rocked the world through the '80s and '90s, the Les Paul Traditional has become a favorite in the Gibson USA lineup. They say that the Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional Mahogany Top adds the enhanced warmth and resonance of that exalted tonewood to the un-routed mahogany body that gives this model its superb punch and sustain.
A spokesperson had this to say, "A glued-in mahogany neck sports the popular new rounded XL profile that just feels so right in the hand, while a thicker, one-piece bound rosewood fingerboard with pearl trapezoid inlays joins other advancements for 2015, including automated G-Force tuners standard for breathtakingly easy re-tuning and an adjustable nickel-plated zero-fret nut. A pair of new '59 Tribute humbuckers capture all the sonic glory of original PAFs to let it all sing sweetly through your amp of choice, and Orange Drop capacitors deliver smooth, rich tone adjustments. Each guitar will be hand numbered with a three-digit number indicating its place in the total number of guitars made."
