Vintage Design Guitar by CreamTone • New Gibson Les Paul 2016 Classic Limited
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 Classic Limited 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 body came to us brand new and has never been owned or played outside our shop. It features a maple top on a solid mahogany body with traditional weight relief, and a very nice dark rosewood fingerboard. It weighs 8 pounds, 14 ounces.
Gibson didn't make a Gold Top in 1960, but when we felt the slim-taper neck on this beauty, we decided to build it to 1960 specs. And it is spectacular! The Goldtop finish is factory fresh and 100% original, as are the Plek’d frets and nut. The rest of the guitar is pure CreamTone! Upgrades to the guitar are listed below.

Other custom hardware includes classic aluminum strap buttons, our square cream jack plate, and a nickel toggle nut. These items are not yet available separately in our store, but if you’re interested in any of them for your guitar, send us a message.
The new OHSC and all the Gibson factory case candy is included along with a CreamTone COA. The guitar has been set up with new Ernie Ball Hybrid pure nickel strings and dialed in to play like a dream. Of course, things can settle a bit during shipping so minor adjustments may be necessary when you unpack it. The finish has not been intentionally aged, however a few light marks may be present.
This is an opportunity to own a new, custom-built 2016 Les Paul Classic Limited 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.
