At first glance, the 2017 Gibson Les Paul Standard looks like a straightforward re-issue of Gibson's best selling electric guitar. Under the hood, this LP Standard means serious business. An AAAA Flamed Maple Top guarantees that instant 'wow' factor, backed by a modern weight-relieved Mahogany body. An proprietary new Nitrocellulose finish gives these new models a fantastic stage appeal, reinforcing Gibson's stamp of quality.
The cornerstone of the LP lineup gets the High Performance treatment.
Perhaps the most impressive feature with the premium Les Paul lineup is the new electronic wiring system. Players can now fine-tune their tone with an almost unrivalled level of versatility, thanks to Push/Pull split coil pickups, a 5-Position DIP switch and even Transient Suppression control. Combine this with the standard volume and tone knobs, and you've got a sonic powerhouse capable of an incredible tonal range and response.
High performance comes from the prominent use of aluminum, steel, and titanium hardware (replacing traditional and tonally-inferior Zamac); an innovative Fast-Access heel and Soloist's neck width and asymmetrical slim-taper profile. The Les Paul Standard has always been the cornerstone of the Gibson USA lineup, and continues with the 2017 series.
