      Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Electric Guitar (519319)

The legend continues with 21st-century neck refinements.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional Electric Guitar earns its name thanks to the traditional features you expect in a Les Paul guitar: mahogany body, set neck with rounded '50s profile, maple top, and a pair of Gibson's '57 Classic humbucker pickups. One significant, yet not-so-traditional improvement: the neck is analyzed by Gibson's Plek machine. Using computer precision Gibson Plek files the frets and cuts slots in the nut to an accuracy of a hundredth of a millimeter for optimal action and intonation without string buzzing.

  • llike a granola bar, extra crunchy

    As reviewed by Kage on 5/11/2009

    The Les Paul Traditional is an exceptional guitar. Besides feeling great and looking great, this guitar sounds very different from most Les Pauls you will encounter. It really captures the sound of great rockers like Jimmy Page by adding a bit more crunch than normal to the pickups. You can get it to sound beautifully clean without sacrificing the sustain and substance that is what Les Paul sound is all about. Aside from what I have heard about the PLEK system, my Traditional was most definitely ready to be played right out of the box. The neck is so easy to play, and the larger size frets make the screaming highs even higher and cleaner. The only downside I think is that the guitar is extremely heavy, even more so than standard Les Pauls due to the lack of a chambered body, but it is made up for in the tone quality. The guitar is beautiful, and I am happy that I own one.

  • old school gibson only better

    As reviewed by ric bolinger on 5/18/2012

    while shopping for my dream guitar if found myself thoroughly confused by the new gibson les paul line (Plek neck good or bad, asymettrical, 60's thin or 59 profile, chambered or non-chambered, burstbuckers or classics, accessories like locking tuners, locking cable jacks well, you get the idea) I played everything out there from the studio to the custom noting specifically the differences in tone and feel. I knew as soon as i picked up the traditional that this was as close to an original 59 id ever come without going VOS. 1. 59 neck profile felt extremely comfortable, fast with tons of bite 2. the plek system allowed me to lower the action and adjust string tension without the limits of fret buzzing etc 3. classic 58 pickups, well what can i say...they're classic 4. non chambered body, my guitar tops out at over 9 lbs and i wouldnt have it any other way...its a Gibson as for the finish, well you really have to see an ebony les paul up close to appreciate what went into it.. They dont give these things away but it was worth every cent to me

  • Plek set-up is a disappointment

    As reviewed by Barry Johnson on 8/11/2008

    I just tried a Les Paul 'Traditional' and the 2008, Standard Les Paul. I was very interested in trying out and feeling the PLEK engineered neck. Both guitars were a great disappointment as to the PLEK'd fret/neck. The nut on both guitars was higher than any Gibson I had picked up since the 80's (when Gibson churned out the worst guitars in its history). The action was high on both. Even at it's high action all around, there was freting out and dead spots all over the guitar's neck. The frets/action on both felt like the frets had been stuck on and the guitars left the factory as-is without a single test. They felt very sterile and unfinished. How could the nuts have been so high if the computer was so precise? The frets appeared untouched or barely touched. The player side of the necks felt very nice and the asymetrical 2008 Standard felt similar to some of the 50's and early 60's Gibson Les Pauls...almost oval in shape and feel. But for all the promise and my excitement in this new PLEK system for precision fretwork, the necks felt like they left the factory before they were worked in any way..unfinished, incomplete feel. Definitely not ready to play for any player. What a disappointment!
