Overview

Steeped in tradition, the 2016 Les Paul Standard T has all the ingredients that have made the Les Paul such a desirable guitar, and one of the most legendary. This year's model comes in a choice of carved plain maple top or beautifully figured maple top dependent on its finish. Body binding adds a familiar touch of elegance, while the mahogany back uses modern weight relief to add resonance and playing comfort. The mahogany neck is also bound and features a thick rosewood fingerboard for more traditional feel and tone with a compound radius that offers the best playing experience possible, whether you'e fingering open chords or soloing up the neck. The nut width is slightly narrower this year, and marks a return to the historic original width that players prefer. Gibson uses a self-lubricating Graph Tech nut that helps strings return to pitch from heavy string bending while adding sustain.
Burstbucker Pro humbuckers offer true PAF tone with coil-splitting for alternate single-coil sounds.

Hardware includes Grover locking tuners for best-in-class performance. The 2016 Les Paul Standard T comes fully set up and ready for action right out of its traditional brown hardshell case.

    Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

    After a month of serious research I finally decided on the 2016 Gibson Standard Les Paul T. Tried a Tradional, Studio and Standard HP at two Local Guiar Center Locations. The Standard T weight and fretboard just felt the best. Decided to purchase at Guitar Center because of the Guitar Center Bucks offer. This purchase netted $500 Guitar Center Bucks. Purchased online to receive a new in a box unit. My only disappointment on the guitar itself is, that I liked the paint job on the guitar in the store better than the one I received. There were more red tones in the paint on the store model.

      Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

      I'm 58 and from the late 70s/80s Genre - so this is a step back to the more traditional Standard.
      That's fine with me- who needs robot tuners and all the added bells and whistles. Just give me a crunchy guitar with lots of sustain that is as fun to admire as it is to play.

      Plays like butter, sounds great and GC went above and beyond to get me one in unopened box. Special shout to the on-line support team.

        Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

        I purchased this guitar because it is the highest grade Les Paul without the automatic tuners. I, as well as many storied guitarists, prefer our guitars to be simple as well as highest quality of construction and tone. I prefer to tune my instruments myself, and not rely on computer chips and batteries to attempt to do it for me. The guitar is a superb example of the high quality that Gibson has been known for in the past, and is extremely playable. The action is wonderful. I also own and play two SG Gibsons and love them as well. The Les Paul is just an alternative tonal palate in comparison to my SG models as is my Fender American Standard Strat. These are undoubtedly the finest guitars out there bar none!

            Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

            This is by far the greatest guitar I've ever played. When I first saw the flame top I fell in love with it. I was unable to find a single problem with it except for a loose volume knob, which was a quick and easy fix. This guitar is amazing to play as the frets were finished perfectly and it was setup right out of the box. I use a fender bassbreaker stack and this guitar sounds perfect through it. It is also very versatile with the many control features. The coils taps are my favorite over splits because they give more of a P90 tone. The true bypass is great because it can allow you to go from a quiet neck pickup to a full on bridge pickup. The phase reverse can give you some nice funky sounds out of the middle position. Overall I would recommend this guitar to anybody for any style of music. I would give this 6 stars if I was able.

              Comments about Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

              I have wanted a L.P. Standard for many years. I never could get "the sound" with the guitars I own. I was finally in a position to buy one , and bought it from GC in San Diego. I was amazed at how much easier things were to play. The tone was to die for. So, that's how they get that tone. Downside. The intonation was all over the place. Grrr , that's a pet peeve of mine. I adjusted, almost there , but two of the strings were a little sharp on the 12 th fret. No more adjustment !! Took it back to GC , and they exchanged it for another one. This one also needed some serious string length tickling. Now, its perfect. Thanks GC.

                      It's a Gibson Les Paul Standard.
                      Proven quality, recommended and played by the greatest guitarist past and present.
                      Fireball finish is awesome.
                      Just the right amount of red fade away.
