Summary: The Gibson Trad Pro V shares the same DNA with a Les Paul—mahogany body and neck, carved maple top—but it's also a completely evolved instrument. The body is weight-relieved, making it super comfortable. The neck has an asymmetrical shape that fits like a glove. Thanks to the compound radius rosewood fretboard, you'll find it easier to solo in higher registers. Gibson loads the Pro V with dual Tradbucker pickups. The neck position humbucker is underwound for a warm, organic sound; the bridge is overwound, increasing the output. Both use Alnico V magnets. A push/pull performs a coil split or coil tap—it's your choice via a dip switch in the control cavity. In coil-split mode, the treble tone push/pull toggles between the inner and outer coils. The rhythm tone push/pull activates a phase switch, perfect if your tone pool is filled with deep British blues.

Body: Mahogany with a figured Maple top in a satin finish.

Neck: Mahogany with a Rosewood fingerboard, asymmetric shape, compound radius, 22 frets, 24.75” scale length, 1.687” nut width.

Pickups/Hardware: Two Tradbucker pickups, individual volume and tone controls, three-way pickup selector, coil taps and phase switches, fixed bridge, stopbar tailpiece, locking vintage-style tuning keys, chrome hardware.

Cosmetics: This guitar is in great shape. It has some buckle rash that was hard to photograph. There are light surface scratches on the top/back of the body. The pickguard has pick wear.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.

Weight: 9.115 lbs.

Case: This guitar ships in the original hard shell case, professionally packaged, and fully insured.
