2006 Gibson Les Paul Classic 1960
THE GUITARCHIVE – This 2006 Gibson Les Paul Classic 1960 Reissue is all original, in excellent condition, and comes with its original hardshell case. It plays like a dream and sounds like a Les Paul with a slightly punchier tone (due to the uncovered humbucker pickups). Original hardshell case included.
You can demo guitars like this at The Local Pickup guitar showroom in Rock Hill, SC.
The Les Paul Classic was introduced in 1990 and released with a higher retail price than the Les Paul Standard at the time, justified by its new unique vibe (a reissue that is modern) and a superior figured maple top.
“Late in the decade, Gibson’s head of research and development, J.T. Riboloff, designed a reissue Les Paul based on the popular and collectible 1960 model. The key difference between this guitar and other Les Pauls in production at the time was the slim neck profile. In addition, Riboloff added other features to make the instrument faithful to the original such as a narrow headstock, thin cutaway binding, aged fingerboard inlays, inked-on serial number, nickel hardware, vintage-style logo and aged binding on body and neck.” — Vintage Guitar Magazine, 1998
