Two P–90s for legendary tone with added neck joint stability
Gibson G FORCE™ Building on eight years of continuous development, G FORCE extends the innovations introduced in Min-ETune by including new firmware that greatly improves ease of use.
Combined with increased speed and accuracy, G FORCE provides the best and simplest user experience yet in an automatic tuning system. Zero Fret Adjustable Nut (patent applied
for) The patent applied for Zero Fret Adjustable Nut increases sustain, promotes accurate intonation, and improves action by offering a wide, range of nut adjustments. Slide guitarists can raise and
lower action easily. Two P-90 Soapbar Alnico Slug Pickups: Brighter Tone with a more percussive attack New design P-90s with Alnico pole pieces offer the traditional
single-coil clarity, but now with a brighter tone and more percussive attack. Wider Neck and Fingerboard A wider neck and fingerboard increase playing comfort for hammer-ons,
pull-offs, and bends, yet the same string spacing retains a familiar, consistent feel. Comprehensive Wood Selection Gibson USA matches the rarest and finest woods to every
guitar based on the quality of the match, consistency of the figure, intensity of the figure, clarity, and wave. Thicker Rosewood Fingerboard The increased mass of a thicker,
one-piece rosewood fingerboard extends sustain. Pearl Inlays Genuine pearl inlays enhance the guitar's appearance and increase its value. Smoother
Sanded, Buffed and Oiled Fingerboard A new, unique oil-treated buffing process upgrades the fingerboard to a silkier feel. Comprehensive Setup A new comprehensive setup and
PLEK program combined with a lower fret height on every Gibson USA 2015 Model Year guitar provides a silky smooth feel, accurate intonation, and easy bending. Improved Output
Jack The re-designed jack houses a more secure, multipoint connection for better signal transfer and holds cables more firmly in place. Heavier Gauge Wire All Gibson USA
guitars now use thicker, stranded wire that provides more surface area for making strong internal connections. New & Improved Neck Joint: Improved stability The
all-important neck-to-body connection has been improved for better tone, greater stability, and additional double-cut playing access. Les Paul's 100th Anniversary Gibson is
proud to honor the creative genius who not only invented the most iconic guitar ever, but pioneered home and multitrack recording for all musicians. Gibson USA is dedicated to continuing his legacy
of innovation. Les Paul Hologram This unique hologram verifies the authenticity of the 2015 Model Year guitars, while paying tribute to the man whose is synonymous with the
most coveted guitar in the world. New and Improved Hardshell Case The new and improved hardshell case for 2015 upgrades the look and strength. Made to withstand an up to
15-foot drop (up to four times more resistant to drops than other cases), the tough, ergonomic, molded exterior and cushioned interior provide maximum protection as well as insulation from
temperature and humidity extremes.
