Gibson Les Paul Standard, 2018 Model, Heritage Cherry Sunburst Finish, Includes Hardshell Case
Gibson's most iconic guitar, the Les Paul Standard, is celebrated by some of the finest musicians to grace the world music stage. Famed for their exquisite tones, rock-solid playability, and no-nonsense looks, it's little wonder that the Les Paul Standard is still regarded as one of the finest guitars available, more than 65 years after its introduction.
Improved Modern Performance and Tones
With the 2018 model Gibson Les Paul Standard you get a premium-grade instrument that would set any stage alight.
Featuring the popular asymmetrical Slim Taper neck profile, Ultra-Modern weight relief, carved maple AAA figured top over a Mahogany back, a set of BurstBucker Pro humbuckers, a beautiful Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish, and even a harshell case to keep it safe, this guitar would make a fantastic addition to any players collection.
BurstBucker Pro Pickups
One of the key factors in the classic Les Paul Standard tone in recent years is the pickups. These popular humbuckers (known as BurstBuckers) feature a characteristically sweet harmonic complexity and crystaline clarity, which has been further enhanced for the BurstBucker Pro.
The fatter, meatier sound of the BurstBucker Pro offers you more drive and attack than the originals, granting you that classic "Patent Applied For" tone with extra attitude, with added noise reduction to help keep things quiet even when using high gain settings. This is further enhanced by the 4 Push-Pull switches (housed in the Volume and Tone Pots) which give you a vast array of tones to play around with in the search for those elusive sweet spots.
Thanks to the powerful combination of a Mahogany body and carved maple AAA figured top, the Gibson Les Paul Standard not only puts out a gorgeous tone with bags of sustain, but also looks every bit the premium-grade instrument that it is. The stunning wood grain characteristics of the carved maple top is set off nicely by the Heritage Cherry Sunburst stain, which leaves you with an unforgettably lasting impression and is set off nicely by the cream body binding and Amber Top Hat control knobs.
Comfortable Lightweight Design
Another great feature for the Gibson Les Paul Standard is the inclusion of an innovative Ultra-Modern weight relief, and a Slim Taper maple neck. These combine to help make those endless hours in the rehearsal room, studio, and on-stage performances that little bit more comfortable for you, whatever your play style is.
