The Les Paul Standard continues to fly the flag for incredible sustain and power over 50 years on from it's introduction.
The 2015 models feature G Force tuning, PLEK setups, precise wide necks and Zero Fret Adjustable Nuts.
This all adds up to true beauty in guitar form while also being a gigging workhorse with perfect tuning, intonation and of course screaming tone. The guitar embodies everything great about Gibson, adhering to the original formula Les discovered while also honouring his memory by developing new hardware and technology for today's guitarist.
Burstbuckers originally took their cues from the revered PAF formula but have gone way beyond to offer a contemporary pair of pickups, delivering molten heat or chime and sustain as needed. Unmatched windings offer that 50's character without sacrificing too much of the top end.
As great as 50's Les Pauls could be it was always possible to find inconsistencies between them. The modern Standards are modeled on the very best examples while using the PLEK setup, G Force automatic tuners and Zero Fret Adjustable Nut to ensure you are always perfectly in tune, intonated and have an immaculate fret dress. A removable pick guard is a nice touch for guitarists who like to let the full beauty of the LP shine through.
The Slim Taper neck profile gets you the robust feel of a Les Paul without sacrificing too much speed and fluency while playing. With a wider and thicker rosewood fretboard you can get modern precision with maximum sustain, while new techniques for sanding, buffing and oiling ensure it's smoother than ever.
