New Gibson Les Paul 2016 Traditional • Slash Inspired • CreamTone Vintage Design
CreamTone Vintage Design brings the tone, look and feel of the great vintage guitars from the 1950s and ‘60s back to modern Gibson USA Les Pauls.
We've rebuilt this Gibson Les Paul 2016 Traditional from the ground up with the full line of LIX Patina lightly aged parts. LIX is the Roman numeral for 59. Even though these parts are brand new, they have the look and feel of well-worn parts from that era. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA for best quality and performance.
If you’ve ever thought about completely outfitting a new Les Paul with CreamTone parts, but didn’t want the hassle of parting out a new guitar and being stuck with all the leftovers, this is your chance to do it the easy way.
The guitar came to us brand new and has never been owned or played outside our shop. It features a beautiful plain maple top on a mahogany body with no weight relief, and a rosewood fingerboard. It weighs 8 pounds, 9 ounces, without weight relief. What an exceptional body! This is your new girl!
If it reminds you of the 2004 Custom Shop Standard Slash payed with Velvet Revolver—we did that on purpose. We love the vibe, but it's not meant to be an exact replica (we skipped the mini toggle switch). The Tobaccoburst finish is factory fresh and 100% original, as are the Plek’d frets and nut. The rest of the guitar is pure CreamTone! Assembled in our shop using our parts especially selected to enhance the unique character of this guitar.
The finish has not been intentionally aged, however a few light marks may be present that reflect the hand-crafted quality of this instrument.
The new Gibson OHSC is included along with a CreamTone COA, and all the Gibson factory case candy.
This is an opportunity to own a new, custom-built 2016 Les Paul Traditional for the same price as the stock guitar at the big-chain stores. But unlike those, this is a very special instrument you’ll be proud to take on stage night after night.
