Gibson Les Paul Supreme: Returns Two Decades After It First Appeared with Refreshed Features; Available Worldwide on Gibson.com

Gibson, the iconic American brand that has shaped sound across generations and genres of music, is excited to announce the return of the Les Paul Supreme. With a refreshed feature set the Gibson Les Paul Supreme is bound to overshadow everything else in sight and be one of the most exciting new releases of the year. The new Gibson Les Paul Supreme is offered in a Figured version with three finishes at all authorized Gibson dealers, and an exclusive Ebony version with three pickups is available only on Gibson.com.

 

The Gibson Les Paul Supreme arriving in Fireburst, Wine Red and Translucent Ebony Burst was created with a beautiful AAA-figured maple top on a mahogany body with Ultra-Modern Weight Relief. The mahogany neck has an ebony fretboard with a compound radius and Super Split Block mother-of-pearl inlays. The neck has a Modern Contoured Heel for exceptional upper fret access, and the headstock is adorned with a striking new mother-of-pearl inlay inspired by a design from the 1940s that was discovered in the Gibson archives. The Burstbucker Pro and Burstbucker Pro + pickups are paired with push/pull Volume and Tone potentiometers for flexible coil tap, phase, and Pure Bypass switching. The three gorgeous finishes are elegantly highlighted with gold hardware, making this not only a great-sounding and highly flexible instrument but also an exceptionally beautiful-looking modern rock machine. A hardshell case is also included. The Gibson Les Paul Supreme Figured version is available at all authorized Gibson dealers and on Gibson.com.
