Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s, Heritage Cherry Sunburst
Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s, Heritage Cherry Sunburst Overview.
A hugely successful 2019 NAMM show has cemented the fact that Gibson are back in a very big way and here to stay! Taking feedback from players, consumers and retailers they have gone back to their roots and redesigned the range from the ground up to offer you the very best of Gibson. The brand new Gibson Original Collection is exactly that, no nonsense, no frills, just pure Gibson tone and playability with fantastic build quality.
The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The Les Paul Standard 50's has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It's equipped with an ABR-1, the classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and amber top hat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

This is the mutts nuts of guitars. Believe the hype and the price tag are with it. Ive played strats, but this is a whole different beast. Cannot get over how easy the thing is to play. And the tones. Wow, good to see Gibson are back!
Beautiful, I have to thank Chris at your store he was brilliant. ????
Just what you would expect from a Gibson Les Paul Standard. A quality instrument.
Amazing guitar! Looks fabulous, sounds even better. Only 4 stars as £2000 Is not a reasonable price, but if you want it you need to stump up the cash
