Gibson Les Paul Traditional 12-String Gold Top

Item: GBLPTD12GTCH1

Gibson has a long and glorious history of crafting top-notch electric 12-string guitars, from the elegant ES-335-12 of 1965, to the EDS-1275 that enabled Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page to segue seamlessly from the 12-string intro to "Stairway to Heaven" to the ripping 6-string solo in live performance. Now Gibson USA merges its 12-string expertise with a legendary electric for what might be the most powerful-sounding and best-playing rendition of the breed ever created: the Les Paul Traditional 12-String. The guitar is equipped with all the hallmarks of the popular Les Paul Traditional, including its legendary tonewoods, groundbreaking hardware complement and sensational humbucking pickups, with minor alterations to make it a solid and smooth-playing 12-string electric. 

The neck is carved to a fast, comfortable '60s profile that measures .800" deep at the 1st fret and .875" at the 12th, and is topped with a Grade-A rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and traditional acrylic trapezoid inlays. In order to accommodate six extra strings without cramping your playing style, Gibson USA ekes out a little extra real estate on the 'board by extending the width of the PLEK-cut Corian™ nut to 1.750". The extended headstock remains true to Les Paul style, with a mother-of-pearl Gibson inlay and gold "Les Paul Model" silkscreen, a truss-rod cover engraved with "Traditional," and 12 high-quality Mini Grover tuners.

The pickups are the final key factor in blasting the Les Paul Traditional 12-String through sonic territory into which 12-string electric guitars rarely venture. A '57 Classic in the neck position and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge provide singing chime, sweet in-between tones, or brilliant leads at the flick of a three-way switch, providing more guts and glory than you've ever heard in a 12-string before. All in all, it's a classic "Traditional" electric 12-string, and one of the most powerful and versatile 12s ever produced.
