Why I’m Daydreaming About The Les Paul Classic 7-String
The Les Paul Classic 7-String is a little different to the 7-string versions of the Flying V and Explorer. Its passive pickups immediately place it in more of a traditional Gibson category, extra string notwithstanding. It has a mahogany body with traditional weight relief, glued-in mahogany neck with one-piece 22 fret rosewood fingerboard and a 12” fingerboard radius, all of which you can find on many different Les Pauls across the range.

Comparing 2011 and 2015 Les Paul Traditionals
My main workhorse for a few years has been my 2011 Gibson Les Paul Traditional. I love this guitar to bits. I selected it out of about ten or twelve different Traditionals, knowing that while each would sound like a Les Paul should, each individual piece of wood has its own visual and sonic character. So when a 2015 Gibson Les Paul Traditional came to visit for a magazine review, I was intrigued to compare the two.
