Nashville-based instrument company Gibson was founded in 1894 and made some of the 20th century’s best guitars, mandolins and banjos. But it wasn’t until 1952 that the company sold it’s most iconic instrument, the solid body Les Paul electric guitar. Featuring a mahogany body with a carved maple top and single cutaway, the instrument was initially offered with two P-90 pickups (in ’57 humbucking pickups were added). In the following decades, the Les Paul became a favorite of many professional players including Jimmy Page, Slash, Joe Perry and Billy Gibbons, to name a few.
If you’ve been eyeing a Les Paul but haven’t added one to your arsenal yet, head over to Guitar Center today where you can save up to $200 on two classic models with the code 10off. With that discount, the Les Paul Traditional Pro IV now costs $1,800. The Wine Red guitar features a 22-fret mahogany neck with a Vintage-C profile, a ’57 Classic neck pickup and a Super ’57 bridge pickup, Grover locking tuners and a Tune-o-matic bridge. If you’re looking to spend less, you can score the Les Paul Studio Deluxe IV in an Iced Tea color for just $1,305. This guitar comes with two BurstBucker pickups, standard Grover non-locking tuners and the same 22-fret Vintage-C neck found on the Traditional.
