Resplendent in high gloss Honey Burst
, the new Baritone
takes the classic Les Paul Studio
features and adds a whole new depth of tone ideal for drop-tuned throb.
Gibson's latest offering is lightweight thanks to its weight-relieved mahogany bod
y with maple top.
It has a solid quarter-sawn mahogany nec
k with '50s profile and a rosewood fingerboard
with 24 medium-jumbo frets
The trouser-flapping shunt comes from Gibson's 496R neck pickup
and an overwound 500T bridge pickup
, both with ceramic magnets.
Gibson's classic combo of Tune-o-matic bridg
e and stopbar tailpiece
complete the guitar.
At just over a thousand pounds it's a pro guitar for serious rock fans.
