The new Gibson Les Paul™ Modern incorporates many contemporary updates that players have embraced such as a lighter-weight body and innovative SlimTaper™ neck with asymmetrical profile. The Modern fingerboard is crafted with genuine ebony and a compound radius for lower, and cleaner action. The neck/body joint features the new Modern contoured heel for effortless access to the highest frets as well as maximum sustain and stability. Hardware upgrades include Grover® locking Rotomatic® tuners, clear top hat knobs and BurstBucker Pro™ and BurstBucker Pro + pickups. The control assembly features 4 push-pull pots to switch between the Gibson™ humbucker™ and the single coil P90 sounds, both of which have defined so many genres of music across multiple generations since we invented them, phase switching and pure bypass for functional and versatile sonic variety. The new Gibson Les Paul Modern is here to shape sound for future generations.
