Overview

For the player that demands just that extra bit of performance and aesthetic appeal, Gibson have launched the 'HP' (Hi Performance) series that turns the regular Les Paul Standard into a savage tone machine! This Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish is a throwback to the original Les Pauls of the 60s!

Precision Performance meets Top-Shelf Tonewood

Fundamentally, this is the Les Paul Standard we've all grown to love - hand selected tonewoods, super smooth neck profile and classic double humbucker tone. But this year, Gibson have really turned up the gain and improved nearly every part of this iconic axe. The Les Paul Standard HP is THE ultimate recording and touring guitar for the professional player.

Upgraded G-Force Tuners, fast-access neck heel, titanium saddles and adjustable zero-fret nut provide rock solid playing action and stability, combined with a compound-radius fretboard and Slimtaper neck for added comfort.

Top all this off with a gorgeous AAAA Flamed Maple tonewood and a weight-relieved Mahogany body, and you've got yourself a top-shelf Gibson that any level of player can appreciate.

A truly astounding Gibson Les Paul for the modern era!

Plek Performance

Traditionally, Gibson have reserved their PLEK manufacturing process for their high end Custom Shop guitars. Gibson now guarantees the best possible string action for every instrument, including the 2016 Les Paul Standard HP. Simply put, a guitar with optimized playability sounds better. The strings do not strike the frets during playing and any intonation problems that may occur due to too-low string action are eliminated.

Superior Comfort

Combine Gibson's streamlined fret dressing with a perfectly tailored SlimTaper neck profile and weight-relieved body, and the LP Standard HP becomes one of the most comfortable models in recent history. Just pick it up and play, you'll see what we mean!

Dip Switched

Dual push-pull volume controls switch pickups between single-coil and humbucking operation. The neck tone control reverses polarity of the neck pickup's output, whilst the bridge tone control switches bridge pickup to Pure Bypass mode, bypassing the tone circuit for hot, biting tone at the pull of a knob.

Hardshell Case Included

Gibson's updated Hardshell case now provides an even more reliable form of protection for your new instrument. Keep your investment safe and secure with their plush lined hardshell case, included in the box!
