The Gibson Les Paul Standard has long been the guitar of choice for serious rock, blues and even jazz musicians. The 2017 Standard might just be the most powerful Gibson have ever made. Burstbucker pro pickups, although often seen as Gibsons highest output pickups, this is actually not the case. Burstbucker's are Gibsons lowest output pickups, named as such because they were originally found on the early Les Paul bursts of the late 50's, they are not wax potted and deliver the creamy Gibson sound so famously associated with the instrument. This is the sound you're looking for.
The flagship Gibson Les Paul Standard is back for 2017 with tons of new features.
The new classic beauty. The Les Paul Standard 2017 T benefits from several groundbreaking updates. New Ultra-Modern weight relief allows for comfortable play and greater sonic depth. A luscious Grade-AAA flame maple top harks to the classic beauty of the Burst. An asymmetrical slim-taper neck profile with a compound-radius fingerboard and rolled binding team up for outstanding comfort, speed and bend-ability.
And push-pull switching on all four knobs for coil tapping on both pickups, a pure bypass, and phase reverse all combine in a truly modern Les Paul that still looks legendary. This stellar guitar is delivered in a classic brown Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.
