For its 120th Anniversary, Gibson launches limited editions of its most popular guitars. Let’s start the presentation with the Les Paul 120 models.

Two Gibson Les Paul 120 guitars are launched for this special event: the Les Paul Standard 120 Light Flame Top and the Les Paul Traditional 120 Flame Top. Both guitars are available in three versions, each with a different wood grade for the flamed maple top (and therefore with a different pricing).
