The All-New Gibson Les Paul Modern Lite is in the House

Thinner, lighter, and more ergonomic—in eye-catching new finishes

TikTok, it’s time to finish your holiday shopping list! Whether you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for the young guitarist in your life, or an aspiring creator searching for a guitar that’s guaranteed to pop on social media feeds, the all-new Gibson Les Paul Modern Lite is worthy of your immediate attention. 

This new addition to the Gibson USA Modern Collection is everything you’d expect from a USA-made Gibson Les Paul™, only thinner, lighter, and more ergonomic. Its SlimTaper™ neck profile is ideal for smaller hands, while the slimmed-down 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—a first for a Gibson USA Core model—complete a sharp look young players will love, while open-coil 490R and 498T humbucking pickups deliver grown-up Gibson tones. 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.

Also new to the Gibson USA Modern Collection is the Gibson 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 could be your new favorite guitar. 

Built for comfort and easy playability with a SlimTaper neck, Modern Contoured Heel, and Ultra-Modern Weight Relief, the Les Paul Modern Figured is a sonic heavyweight thanks to a pair of Burstbucker Pro™ pickups and versatile wiring that offers single-coil tones, phase switching, and pure bypass. 

Gibson Les Paul Modern Figured collection in a cobalt burst, cherry burst, and seafoam green finish

Topping it all off is a slab of beautiful AAA-grade figured maple designed to turn heads in a trio of eye-catching gloss nitrocellulose finishes: Cobalt Burst, Cherry Burst, and Seafoam Green. Sometimes, more really is more. For even more Les Pauls in eye-catching hues, check out the recently-released Custom Color Series.
