Overview by GAK

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.

The Les Paul Standard 50’s Heritage Cherry Sunburst has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a classic combination that delivers great sustain, heavy lows and a classic top-end sparkle. It has a rounded 50’s-style mahogany neck with a smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets.

The Les Paul Standard 50’s Heritage Cherry Sunburst has an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and aluminium stop bar tailpiece which provides great tuning stability. There are also vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons to complete the vintage look.

For pickups, it has calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups which are loaded with Alnico II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors, recreating the classic tone of a PAF. The Burstbucker 1 is slightly under-wound with medium output, providing a classic creamy tone and edge. The Burstbucker 2 is a slightly hotter’ pickup with more turns of wire, its output being closer to that of a '57 Classic. In sum, you’ll get that classic singing Les Paul tone.

To complete this classic model are amber top-hat knobs, a Graph Tech nut, trapezoid inlays, a cream pickguard and nickel hardware.

Includes a hardshell case and Gibson Accessory Kit.
