U.K. website MusicRadar.com has named Gibson’s Les Paul Classic Plus its Solidbody Electric of the Year (2012).
The site reviewer from Total Guitar magazine writes, “It shouldn't be possible to be able to improve on a classic so many years after its introduction, but with the Les Paul Classic Plus, Gibson has done exactly that.
“It's a stunner of a guitar, somehow managing to be both beauty and the beast. It's got the looks, sure, but we're after much more than that for north of £1500, and the Classic Plus delivers: bell-like tone, sustain that will still be hanging around when you've retired and a choice of neck profile (either a rounded '50s or slim '60s style neck is available) all help make the Les Paul Classic Plus our solid body of the year.”
The review awards the guitars 5 stars out of 5.
