❌SOLD❌ Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 Ebony Black, 2018


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Here’s a real beauty – a 2018 Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 model in Ebony Black with a pair of black-covered P-90 pickups.

Visually, this Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 is very striking and you can see why the term ‘Black Beauty’ was used for the initial 1954 Les Paul Customs, which had a bridge 90 and a ‘Staple Top’ AlNiCo pickup in the neck position. There was one other invisible difference – the Les Paul Custom body was entirely Mahogany, with no Maple cap. The Maple capped Customs didn’t appear until Gibson re-launched the Les Paul in 1968.    The Les Paul Classic example uses a solid Mahogany back, plain Maple cap (there’s little advantage in using figured woods under solid colours), Mahogany neck and Indian Rosewood fingerboard.

Gibson’s descriptions of this model are at time of writing still available on a legacy page which can be seen here.

This Gibson Les Paul Classic P90 was built during 2018 at Gibson Nashville, and is in very good, clean condition with only the slightest wear.    This guitar has no weight relief, so it feels pretty solid.    It’s well put together, and is very comfortable to play.  The P-90’s have a full, rich sound that fits many genres.

The original Gibson-branded hard shell case is included.
