Crank up a Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar and experience power and
performance that has more than 40 years of craftsmanship and innovation
Pioneered and developed with the assistance of
pioneering jazz-pop guitarist Les Paul--one of the world's greatest
musical and technological pioneers--the Gibson Les Paul has become the
standard by which all electric guitars are judged. With fat, rich tone
and incredible sustain, the Les Paul guitar lends itself to every style
and generation of music. From the sweetest jazz to the heaviest rock and
metal, the Les Paul is a guitar that can do it all--it is one of the
most powerful and versatile instruments of all time.
The Les Paul
Standard Guitar debuted in 1952 as Gibson's first solidbody guitar, and
has evolved over the course of time to stand today as the benchmark for
all electric guitars.
The Les Paul Standard continues to alter
and inspire the sounds of today's ever-changing musical landscapes. It
features a hand-carved AA maple top with matched chambered mahogany back
outlined with single-ply binding. The neck is crafted from a single
piece of mahogany. Carefully glued into the neck cavity of the body, the
neck functions as a single unit with the body. Its asymmetrical shape
is the most comfortable neck offered on a Les Paul Standard.
Pro pickups containing Alnico V magnets wound to vintage specs and with
wax potting deliver original "Patent Applied For" tone.
Paul Standard necks receive precision fret dressing and setup with the
Plek system. As the guitar lies in a cradle, a computer-controlled robot
arm moves along the neck measuring each fret's height, the fingerboard
radius, even the bow in the neck. Using that data, the Plek machine
adjusts the truss rod, cuts the nut slots for optimal spacing and height
for each string, files each fret to a hundredth of a millimeter
accuracy, and then polishes the frets. In a fraction of the time it
takes a skilled technician, the Plek machine eliminates buzzing strings
and dead spots, producing a neck with flawless intonation and superb
NOTE: To give you a choice of how your Les Standard
should look, the pickguard is not attached but included in the case. To
install the pickguard, holes will need to be drilled into the body.
