Gibson unveils new Les Paul Player Plus Series

On first glimpse, the Les Paul Player Plus Series looks identical to its older brethren, however, the series plays host to some minor modifications to make it a bit more friendly on both the environment and your wallet. The traditional rosewood fretboard you’ve come to know on love on a Les Paul is swapped out in favour of a modern Richlite fingerboard with cryogenically treated frets due to a worldwide CITES restriction on the export of endangered timbers such as rosewood and various species of mahogany. The series also features a deluxe satin finish on all models and a modern rounded neck profile for optimized comfort.

The Gibson Les Paul Player Plus Series also offers three different pickup configurations, coming loaded with red-hot spanky P-90’s, Gibson’s classic BurstBucker Pro Humbuckers, or the heavily underrated, bright tones of the Mini Humbuckers. Pick your poison.
