Until recently, Gibson’s presence in the world of 7-string guitars was limited to the Explorer and Flying V, sporting a set of EMG Pickups. Now, 7-string slingers can add the Les Paul to their arsenal, adding a bit of traditional taste to the 7+ string game. Read below for specs and more on this new production model from Gibson USA!

For too long the luthiers at Gibson have reserved the 7-string guitars for other popular models like the Flying V’s and Explorers, but no longer! The Les Paul Classic 7-String is here to lay down the low down for the single-cut rock machine, with superb power and versatility, and all the iconic looks that made the Les Paul a Classic in the first place. The mahogany body with traditional weight-relief and carved maple top form the foundation, while the glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece rosewood fingerboard all stick to the 24.75” scale length for the playing feel you’ve come to love. A Seymour Duncan ’59+ in the neck position and hot JB in the bridge blast out scorching humbucker tones, with push-pull coil splitting for brighter single-coil sound, and there’s an onboard 15 dB Turbo Boost when you really need to blow the house down. The popular SlimTaper™ neck profile helps you maintain speed and playing ease across the full seven strings, and feels great from low-string riffing to high-fret wailing. The Les Paul Classic 7-String comes protected in a Vintage Brown Gibson hardshell case.
