Gibson Les Paul Traditional Series

In 2008, Gibson introduced an update to the Les Paul Standard which included a newly chambered body, locking tuners and input jack, and a modern asymmetrical neck profile. Gibson also carried on making a more traditional Les Paul Standard model (the Gibson Les Paul Traditional) using the construction and features of the Gibson Les Paul Standard models from the 1980s and 1990s. At its launch in 2008 the Les Paul Traditional featured a carved maple top, non-chambered, weight-relieved mahogany body and a mahogany neck (with the choice of 50's or 60's neck profile). It had ’57 Classic and ’57 Classic Plus humbuckers. These models are immediately identifiable from the "Traditional" on the truss rod cover, but the specifications of the Les Paul Traditional have changed over the years since 2008.
