With its stockpile of modern features, the Gibson Les Paul Standard is ready to rock. Benefit from a vast array of tonal options, thanks to Burstbucker Pro pickups and innovative wiring. Enjoy effortless playability, by virtue of the Les Paul Standard's asymmetrical SlimTaper neck and fast-action rosewood fingerboard. Beyond that, an Ultra-Modern weight-relieved body ensures that you can keep playing all night without straining your back. The Les Paul Standard features a self-lubricating TekToid nut, an aluminum Tune-o-matic bridge, and locking Grover tuners. It's the Les Paul you've been waiting for.
Les Paul Standards are some of the most sonically versatile electric guitars Gibson has ever offered. This guitar's tone and volume controls are a push-pull design, and five internal dip switches determine how these controls work. By setting these dip switches to your preference, you can access coil splits, coil taps, and a highpass filter for each pickup; determine if you want the pickups to be in or out of phase; and even engage a transient suppression circuit for avoiding unwanted output peaks when recording direct.
Early Les Pauls are glorious, but they are often very heavy. Thankfully, Gibson has done something special with this Les Paul Standard. It features their Ultra-Modern weight-relief design that retains the chime and resonance of vintage Les Pauls with a big reduction in weight. The Gibson Les Paul Standard's lighter weight allows you to enjoy yourself onstage for longer and avoid the shoulder and back pain that can sometimes accompany those all-night gigs.
When it comes to capturing that classic Les Paul tone, nothing beats the sound of this Les Paul Standard's PAF-style Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups. Alnico V magnets capture the subtle variations in true humbucker tone, thanks to historically accurate "unmatched" bobbins. Plug into your favorite amp, and experience smooth low-end response, complex midrange crunch, and sweet-sounding highs. These pickups sound great clean or they can be used to push your amp into overdrive for the fat, smoky sound you can only get with a humbucker. Burstbucker Pro pickups are wax potted to minimize feedback and noise.
