This triple-pickup version delivers even more tone, and all the playability of the original. The Classic has a fast Gibson 1960 Slim Taper neck, the hallmark Les Paul carved Maple top, a Mahogany body & neck, a Rosewood fingerboard , and Gold hardware (green key tuners). Based on a 1960s Les Paul Standard Classic, this guitar features all the adornments which made that model highly sought after, including a carved Maple top, green keys and inlay for a vintage vibe and nickel hardware. Great looks aside, the 2003 Les Paul Classic features a true '60s slim taper neck. Combined with 496R/496R/500T ceramic magnet humbucking pickups, this is one scorching guitar.
