The world-renowned Gibson Les Paul™ traditions of quality, playability, and sound continue with the launch of two new models from the acclaimed Gibson Modern Collection. Available in an array of eye-catching finishes, the new Les Paul Modern Lite and Les Paul Modern Figured both feature ergonomic upgrades, including lighter-weight bodies, player-friendly contouring, and a slimmer neck profile ideal for younger players and those with smaller hands.

Les Paul Modern Lite:
In a fresh array of standout colors guaranteed to pop on stages and in social media feeds, the all-new Les Paul Modern Lite features everything you’d expect from a Gibson Les Paul, only thinner, lighter, and more ergonomic. The SlimTaper™ neck profile is ideal for younger players, and the slimmed-down all-mahogany body has been designed with a contoured back for maximum player comfort, whether sitting in front of a camera or rocking out in the garage.

Five satin-nitrocellulose finishes with matching headstocks complete the fresh new look—a first for a Gibson USA Core model—while open-coil 490R and 498T humbucking pickups deliver grown-up tones. The Les Paul Modern Lite arrives in five attention-grabbing satin finishes and a soft-shell guitar case is also included. With the holiday season approaching, it makes an ideal gift for a younger guitarist looking to stand out. And if you aren’t a younger player? Strapping on an instrument that’s a little easier on your back isn’t the worst idea in the world.

Les Paul Modern Figured:
If you are looking for timeless Les Paul tone with quality-of-life upgrades, the new Gibson Les Paul Modern Figured might just be your new favorite guitar. Built for comfort and easy playability with a SlimTaper neck, Modern Contoured Heel for effortless access to the highest frets and maximum sustain and stability, and Ultra-Modern Weight Relief, this is a sonic heavyweight thanks to a pair of Burstbucker Pro™ pickups and versatile wiring offering single-coil tones, phase switching, and pure bypass via four push-pull pots.

The Les Paul Modern Figured’s fingerboard is crafted with genuine ebony and has a compound radius for lower and cleaner action. Hardware upgrades include Grover® locking Rotomatic® tuners, clear Top Hat knobs, and Burstbucker Pro™ and Burstbucker Pro + pickups. Topping it all off is a slab of beautiful AAA-grade figured maple guaranteed to turn heads in a trio of eye-catching gloss nitrocellulose finishes. The new Gibson Les Paul Modern Figured is here to shape sound for future generations.
