Marking the beginning of a new era, Gibson takes the legendary Les Paul Standard beyond expectations with incredible tops, increased playability and modern tonal options like never before.
A new hand-applied process brings out the extraordinary beauty of the AAA maple tops, resulting in a depth and dimension to the flame that simply must be seen to be believed. Modern weight relieving is applied to the mahogany backs for outstanding balance and sonic capabilities, and the BurstBucker Pro pickups are paired with frequency-tuned “Fat Tap” coil-splitting feature, phase switch and “Pure Bypass” option to send the bridge pickup signal direct to the output jack.
Don’t take our word for it – the 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard must be experienced to be appreciated. Stop by Guitar Center for a test drive and see for yourself.
