Les Paul Traditional 2016 T 6-String Electric Guitar Iced Tea description:

The Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 T 6-String Electric Guitar Iced Tea takes things up a few notches to present one of the nicest Gibson guitars in the 2016 range. For players who appreciate a deluxe top and exceptional pickups, this is for you.

It features the original tonewood combination that has helped catapult the Les Paul as arguably the most popular guitar on the market. With the addition of a beautifully carved solid AAA grade maple top, further bite and articulation is offered to the tone while the mahogany body with traditional weight relief adds warmth and depth. The end result is a hugely rich and complete sounding body with plenty of definition.

This superior tone is delivered via a pair of Gibson 57 Classic Humbuckers which are powered by Alnico magnets designed to match the exact image of the original PAF pickups. These offer a variety of characteristics and bring your amplified sound to life.

The neck sports Gibson’s traditional nut width and uses a self lubricating Graphtech nut that helps strings return to pitch from heavy string bending while adding sustain. The machine heads are traditional manual tuners to add a vintage note but with performance that is smooth and efficient. The Gibson Les Paul Traditional 2016 comes fully set up and ready for action right out of its traditional brown hardshell case.

Review:
After viewing many Iced tea Gibsons I notised that they are all different and some are almost like a plain top. I was worried mine would be not as nice as the advertised picture (as that is Gibsons generic picture) however I was pleasantly surpeised when it arrived.
The top has a lovely medium subtle flame which gives it that slight 58 vibe, and also the weight was satisfactory, and not as light as balsa.
Everything about it is great, BUT ok it's not a huge but.
I can only imagine it has sat in a case for some time as the intonation was pretty bad.
The top e string can get caught on the fret nib ends near the middle of the fret board, but I'm sure with a little gentle filing it will even out (Gibson fret polishing to blame)
Other than that I am very happy indeed, and yes it's expensive and in theory should be perfect but the issues are very very small. IF you can afford a medium expensive guitar this should be on your radar as it screams quality in it's build and sounds awesome.
