3 interesting new non 2015 LPs


Recommended Posts


You want to talk heavy? Bill Kellihers riffs with metal giants Mastodon could just about crush prehistoric beast that gives the band its name. The Bill Kelliher Halcyon Les Paul takes its classic mahogany/maple foundation from this savage-riffing guitarists longtime favorite singlecut, and blows it through the bedrock with a pair of eviscerating Lace Dissonant Aggressor pickups, with push-pull coil splitting on their individual volume controls for authentic single-coil sounds. With the tone totally covered, this guitar drives home the looks, too, courtesy of a Gold With Blackburst finish, gold-plated hardware, gold speed knobs, a Halcyon hot-stamped truss-rod cover, cream binding, and traditional trapezoid inlays. The guitar comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.






For too long the luthiers at Gibson have reserved the 7-string guitars for other popular models like the Flying Vs and Explorers, but no longer! The Les Paul Classic 7-String is here to lay down the low down for the single-cut rock machine, with superb power and versatility, and all the iconic looks that made the Les Paul a Classic in the first place. The mahogany body with traditional weight-relief and carved maple top form the foundation, while the glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece rosewood fingerboard all stick to the 24.75 scale length for the playing feel youve come to love. A Seymour Duncan 59+ in the neck position and hot JB in the bridge blast out scorching humbucker tones, with push-pull coil splitting for brighter single-coil sound, and theres an onboard 15 dB Turbo Boost when you really need to blow the house down. The popular SlimTaper neck profile helps you maintain speed and playing ease across the full seven strings, and feels great from low-string riffing to high-fret wailing. The Les Paul Classic 7-String comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.






Since 1983 the Les Paul Studio has won countless fans for its made-in-America quality, its full-bore tone, and its no-nonsense looks and pricing. The Les Paul Studio Hot Rod takes all of whats best about the Studio and adds more: extra thick body, scorchingly powerful humbucking pickups with Fat Tap switching, and customized street-rod looks on a sleek Ebony finish with blue and white pinstriping. A black markerless fingerboard (side dots only) and double-white pickup coils complement the look, and its all nailed down for optimum resonance and sustain with time-tested Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, plus locking Grover tuners. Pack it all in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell caseat an unbelievable priceand youre ready for the gig.
