The Gibson Les Paul Traditional is an electric guitar that pays homage to the iconic Les Paul design that has been a staple in the music industry since the 1950s. This guitar was designed with the traditionalist in mind, featuring classic design elements that have made Les Paul guitars popular for decades.
One of the most notable features of the Les Paul Traditional is its construction. The guitar has a solid mahogany body and a carved maple top, which gives it a rich and warm tone. It also has a set-in mahogany neck with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, providing a smooth playing experience.
This Les Paul Traditional is equipped with two '57 Humbucker pickups, which are modeled after the original PAF pickups found on vintage Les Paul guitars. These pickups are known for their warm and articulate tone, and they allow the player to achieve a wide range of sounds, from smooth and clean to gritty and distorted.
Other features of this 2009 Les Paul Traditional include a Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, vintage-style tuners, and traditional-style fingerboard inlays.

This guitar has been played at home, never onstage or on tour. It is in excellent condition with just some light scratches on the pickguard and some very faint buckle rash on the back. There is little sign of fret wear. The speed knobs have a few hairline cracks in them but nothing to worry about and there is a small crack in the pickguard near the fretboard.
This guitar has a beautiful bookmatched maple top in “Iced Tea Burst”. At 9.8 lbs it is solid like a Les Paul should be while not some of the heavy 'bricks' that we come across from time to time. It is all stock from the factory, and sounds fantastic.
Overall, this 2009 Gibson Les Paul Traditional is a lovely example that combines classic design with modern features, making it a versatile instrument for a wide range of playing styles.
Comes with original Gibson USA case in great condition.
