The new Les Paul Modern Lite and Les Paul Modern Figured both feature ergonomic upgrades, including lighter-weight bodies, player-friendly contouring, and a slimmer neck profile.
Les Paul Modern Lite
Les Paul Modern Lite in Gold Mist
The all-new Les Paul Modern Lite features everything you’d expect from a Gibson Les Paul, only thinner, lighter, and more ergonomic. The SlimTaper neck profile is ideal for younger players, and the slimmed-down all-mahogany body has been designed with a contoured back for maximum player comfort, whether sitting in front of a camera or rocking out in the garage.
Five satin-nitrocellulose finishes with matching headstocks complete the fresh new look—a first for a Gibson USA Core model—while open-coil 490R and 498T humbucking pickups deliver grown-up tones. The Les Paul Modern Lite arrives in five attention-grabbing satin finishes and a soft-shell guitar case is also included. With the holiday season approaching, it makes an ideal gift for a younger guitarist looking to stand out. And if you aren’t a younger player? Strapping on an instrument that’s a little easier on your back isn’t the worst idea in the world.
Les Paul Modern Figured
Gibson Les Paul Modern Figured in Seafoam Green, Colbalt Burst and Cherry Burst
Built for comfort and easy playability with a SlimTaper neck, Modern Contoured Heel for effortless access to the highest frets and maximum sustain and stability, and Ultra-Modern Weight Relief, this is a sonic heavyweight thanks to a pair of Burstbucker Pro pickups and versatile wiring offering single-coil tones, phase switching, and pure bypass via four push-pull pots.
The Les Paul Modern Figured’s fingerboard is crafted with genuine ebony and has a compound radius for lower and cleaner action. Hardware upgrades include Grover locking Rotomatic tuners, clear Top Hat knobs, and Burstbucker Pro and Burstbucker Pro + pickups. Topping it all off is a slab of beautiful AAA-grade figured maple guaranteed to turn heads in a trio of eye-catching gloss nitrocellulose finishes. The new Gibson Les Paul Modern Figured is here to shape sound for future generations.
