Guitars don't come much iconic than a Les Paul, so we thought we'd let you hear one of our favourite more affordable models: the Gibson Les Paul Faded 2018. Giving you that timeless shape that every guitarist has dreamt of owning at one point or another, these Faded models come in at a much more accessible price and are seriously impressive!
Featuring a maple top and a slim mahogany neck, the Les Paul Faded 2018 has all the coveted Les Paul sustain you could ever ask for. It's 490 R &T humbuckers sound fantastic and can hold their own no matter what you throw at them. A little crunch gives you some moody bluesy tones while full-on distortion will send you into full-blown rock mode! This model is also weight-relieved so it feels nice and comfortable, even over the course of a full gig or rehearsal.
Offering unbelievable quality for their price, we were blown away when the Faded models first arrived in the Gibson 2018 range and thoroughly recommend them to anyone who loves that classic style. We decided to give the Worn Cherry finish a spin here because it looks absolutely jaw-dropping and is one of our top choices from the series.
