Question on first Gibson Les Paul Classic


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

Today I got my very first Gibson Les Paul Classic in Heritage Cherry Sunburst.   I am just now learning at the age of 42, so I am stoked!   I was looking it over (I ordered it online from a dealer) and I noticed the back of it has a seam.  It was just made in July of 2021 - but are they doing two piece backs on Classics now?   I just want to make sure it is not a defect or damage from shipping, etc.   I have a pic below.   The line is perfectly straight though, so it appears to be a seam and I can feel it a little with my fingers.    Thanks for your help!

I googled -


If you look closely at the (small) pic of the back of the one in the link...there's a distinct seam.  So yes you are correct - two piece back; looks bookmatched. 

I didn't know that. 

Best wishes!
