Gibson USA 2018 Les Paul Standard HP-II Overview by GAK:
The USA 2018 Les Paul Standard HP-II takes player's favourite features from the recent evolutions of the hallowed instrument that is the LP! So the core ingredients are the same as they always have been- starting with a Mahogany body and beautiful Flame Maple top. This body has Ultra-Modern weight relief giving added resonance and also a belly scarf to stop the back edge digging in your ribs- this all helps make it eminiently comfortable for extended playing sessions.
The Soloist-width Mahogany neck has an extremely comfortable asymmetrical Slim Taper neck profile on the back whilst the compound radius Richlite fingerboard and low profile cryogenically treated frets mean your fingers will be flying! And up the top end of the neck there's a fast-access heel whilst there's a titanium adjustable zero-fret nut and manual locking kidney machineheads keeping tuning in check.
One of the most toneful yet versatile Les Pauls ever, the Standard HP-II features custom Lead Pro+ bridge and Rhythm Pro neck pickups. Allied to an Aircraft grade 3-way switch and 4 push-pull pots with DIP switch you can get over 150 reversible instant rewiring options! Shipping in a premium composite hardshell case these guitars look, feel and sound amazing!
