The Contemporary line also features a new concept: the Les Paul and SG Modern, which incorporate lighter-weight bodies, slim taper neck profiles for full-access to the high frets, ebony fingerboards, high-output versatile pickups and a push-pull control system to pivot between the humbucker and the P90 sounds.
