In the Gibson Guitar catalogue is there anything more iconic than an LP with a traditional sunburst gloss finish ? – This used Gibson Les Paul Classic from 2004, with a cherry sunburst gloss finish certainly ticks a lot of boxes for those looking for an LP that is loaded with traditional features

Additional comments in no particular order :-  

The LP Classic v The LP Standard – Effectively the same guitar, yet slightly different – A Classic is spec’d with a slightly slimmer mahogany neck, based on the early 1960 Les Paul’s  – Note the headstock facia and you’ll find the script text denotes Les Paul Classic and not ‘Les Paul Model’ as per many other models – Note the engraved ‘Classic’ truss rod cover – A Classic is spec’d with a set of open coil humbuckers that are a touch hotter than those found on a Standard – Otherwise they can be considered a similar guitar  – The neck pick-up is still fat and warm, but the bridge pick-up kicks out an extra ounce of power – So more screamin’ highs, yet still plenty of muscle in the mid range with tight lows – To a degree a Les Paul sounds like a Les Paul, yet subtle and effective variations will please one customer more than another – The Classic can still deliver you that fat vintage flavoured Clapton to Moore classic rock n blues tone, but as an overview it does tend to possess an extra ounce of bite – So maybe more pleasing to the player who wants a Les Paul that delivers an extra kick, maybe inspired by Slash – Horses for courses as they say
