Gibson Les Paul Less Plus 2015 finished in Heritage Cherry Sunburst
This guitar has had 5 fully reversible upgrades:
1) Nitro friendly “Les Paul Model” sticker over the “Les Paul 100” logo, this can be peeled off if desired
2) Grover Tuners fitted, the complete and fully functioning Gibson G-Force Robo tuner system is complete and very easy to replace if desired
3) Tusq XL POL-6110-00 zero fret replacement nut fitted, the original brass nut is included and simply drops in after loosening the strings
4) Chrome covers have been added to both pickups, a simple de-soldering will remove these if required.
5) the “Les Paul Custom” truss rod cover can be removed with 2 small screws and the original “Less ” plate can be easily fitted if desired
The guitar is what I would describe as excellent condition with very few hours playtime, you can hardly tell as there is very little evidence of this.
The 100 year anniversary gold Hard Case is the best case ever produced by Gibson and as far as I know, the only one actually made in the USA.
The guitar has had a recent professional setup and is strung with NYXL 9-46 strings
Everything pictured is included in the sale, any questions – fire away!

Les Paul Less 2015
Superb playing comfort without sacrifice
Featuring the Gibson Tuning System
Authentic Les Paul tones and looks, versatile coil splitting, and a contoured, extra–slim back for more comfort than ever.
Gibson G FORCE™
Building on eight years of continuous development, G FORCE extends the innovations introduced in Min-ETune by including new firmware that greatly improves ease of use. Combined with increased speed and accuracy, G FORCE provides the best and simplest user experience yet in an automatic tuning system.
Zero Fret Adjustable Nut (patent applied for)
The patent applied for Zero Fret Adjustable Nut increases sustain, promotes accurate intonation, and improves action by offering a wide, range of nut adjustments. Slide guitarists can raise and lower action easily.
Upgraded Tune-O-Matic Bridge with Titanium Saddles
An Allen wrench-compatible thumbscrew easily adjusts the bridge height, and specially notched titanium saddles match each string so notes ring more clearly and sustain longer.
Wider Neck and Fingerboard
A wider neck and fingerboard increase playing comfort for hammer-ons, pull-offs, and bends, yet the same string spacing retains a familiar, consistent feel.
Comprehensive Wood Selection
Gibson USA matches the rarest and finest woods to every guitar based on the quality of the match, consistency of the figure, intensity of the figure, clarity, and wave.
Thicker Rosewood Fingerboard
The increased mass of a thicker, one-piece rosewood fingerboard extends sustain.
Genuine pearl inlays enhance the guitar’s appearance and increase its value.
Smoother Sanded, Buffed and Oiled Fingerboard
A new, unique oil-treated buffing process upgrades the fingerboard to a silkier feel.
A new comprehensive setup and PLEK program combined with a lower fret height on every Gibson USA 2015 Model Year guitar provides a silky smooth feel, accurate intonation, and easy bending.
Improved Output Jack
The re-designed jack houses a more secure, multipoint connection for better signal transfer and holds cables more firmly in place.
Heavier Gauge Wire
All Gibson USA guitars now use thicker, stranded wire that provides more surface area for making strong internal connections.
With or without pickguard, the choice is yours.
Les Paul’s 100th Anniversary
Gibson is proud to honor the creative genius who not only invented the most iconic guitar ever, but pioneered home and multitrack recording for all musicians. Gibson USA is dedicated to continuing his legacy of innovation.
