Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus 2018 – Satin Vintage Sunburst
A Gorgeous Blend of Beauty and Practicality
The Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus 2018 blends vintage and modern features in a top-rate solidbody electric guitar. Its warm-toned mahogany back is capped with simply gorgeous figured maple. The Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus also sports a pair of Gibson’s own mini humbucking pickups, legendary for their chiming take on humbucker tone and sustain. In addition, a bound, rounded-profile mahogany neck and Richlite fingerboard with Plek’d frets provide smooth feel and playability. You’ll love the Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus’s tone, modern playability, and eye-catching appointments.
Classic mahogany/maple body
Something wonderous happens when Gibson pairs mahogany and maple for their iconic Les Paul models. The mahogany back offers warmth and sustain that is beautifully translated through the mini humbucking pickups. The maple top not only brings a beautiful aesthetic to the Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus, but it also infuese the instrument with a brighter attack and enhanced sustain. Together these two tonewoods are the recipe for the tone that helped define rock ‘n’ roll over the years.
Rounded neck carve and Plek’d frets
The rounded-C neck profile of the Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus is balanced, weighted, and shaped in a familiar way. All the way up and down the fingerboard, this C-profile neck accommodates your style and exploration. It also features a 1-piece bound Richlite fingerboard, sanded and buffed to silky smoothness. Finally, the Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus neck has been Plek’d, a process that levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing another layer of smooth playability and response.
Authentic mini humbucking tone
When Gibson first introduced mini humbuckers into their Les Pauls in the 1970s, they put a new sound into their extremely familiar and beloved platform. These mini humbuckers are a modern update of the original Gibson models. They boast all the vintage tone that made the originals legendary — bright, bell-like jangle with the midrange complexity and punch you normally associate with humbuckers. And they do it all, of course, with no noise. From the tones of Johnny Winter to Dave Grohl, the Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Player Plus and its mini humbuckers are a legendary combination.
