If you want to capture that authentic PAF-powered Les Paul tone, as heard on classic records by greats such as Bluesbreakers-era Eric Clapton or Duane Allman, you'll love the Limited-Edition Gibson Les Paul Classic 2016 "Proprietary Run" Guitars.
These Les Paul Classic models come with Classic '57 humbuckers, designed to capture that classic PAF tone of the first Les Paul Standards from the late Fifties. If you dig Clapton’s Bluesbreakers’ tone, Duane’s tone with the Allman Brothers, bluesmen like Luther Allison and B.B. King, etc., then this is your go-for-blood hound. Complete with the “Patent Applied For” decal on their bassplates, these pickups are faithful reproductions of the originals, providing warm, even tones with nice full response and crunch to spare.
Many consider these humbuckers to be the "Holy Grail" of the “true” Gibson sound. The ’57 Classic has a special Gibson Alnico II magnet, vintage enamel coated wire, nickel-plated pole pieces, nickel slugs, maple spacers and vintage-style, two-conductor, braided wiring – all true to form!
The Les Paul Classics are pretty much most players' idea of a "perfect" Les Paul: slim taper neck, plain maple top, PAF-style pickups... in other words, a guitar that looks and sounds like the ones played by Clapton, Page, Allman and others. They have chambered bodies for weight-relief, but other than that, as vintage as they get - no coil-tapping knobs, no robot tuners, no fancy quilted maple tops.
Gibson Les Paul Classic Proprietary Run: a classic 1950's vibe
Les Paul Classic GIBSON LES PAUL CLASSIC PROPRIETARY RUN 2016, HONEY BURST
These 2016 "Proprietary Run" guitars are limited-edition models with a vintage-style vibe, but devoid of more expensive Custom shop specs. Still, they manage to have a more vintage-like vibe than the modern Les Paul Standards: no fancy figured maple tops here, the plain top is more in keeping with the original 1950's guitars. Also, they feature open, PAF-style '57 Classic humbuckers. The only noticeable nod to modernity is that they have chambered bodies for weight relief, but that shouldn't bother most players - on the contrary!
Visually and tonally, these are the most vintage-style Les Pauls outside the Custom Shop zone, but whereas the Custom Shop models are often built to look "aged", the Les Paul Classics look like the original Les Paul guitars would have looked when Clapton and all those great guitarists first bought theirs in the early Sixties - mint, and ready to set the world on fire! They are serious contenders for coolest Les Pauls right now ...
