Overview

The new classic beauty. The Les Paul Standard 2017 T benefits from several groundbreaking updates. New Ultra-Modern weight relief allows for comfortable play and greater sonic depth. A luscious Grade-AAA flame maple top harks to the classic beauty of the ’Burst. An asymmetrical slim-taper neck profile with a compound-radius fingerboard and rolled binding team up for outstanding comfort, speed and bend-ability. And push-pull switching on all four knobs for coil tapping on both pickups, a pure bypass, and phase reverse all combine in a truly modern Les Paul that still looks legendary. This stellar guitar is delivered in a classic brown Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap and a polishing cloth.

Picked up a bourbon burst Standard this morning and though I haven't spent a ton of time with it yet I can say that the 2017 Standards are incredible guitars. The new asymmetrical neck and compound radius fretboard have to be played to be appreciated. Probably the most comfortable, smoothest neck I've played.
I initially went to GC to get one of last year's Tradionals that was on clearance. I wasn't planning on spending this kind of money on a Les Paul. One of the sales guys, who I've known for years pulled this Standard out of the box and handed it to me. "Play this while I re-string the Tradional for you" he says. 3 hours later I spent a grand more than I wanted to and left with the 2017 Standard.
If you're in the market for a new Les Paul definitely give one of these a test drive. You won't be disappointed.

I have been playing for 30 years and also had a previous career in the musical instrument sales industry so I know a little bit about guitars. I had been debating for the past few months about adding a Gibson Les Paul back into my stable which include other high end guitars. The Black Friday sale at GC pushed me past the tipping point and I decided to order this Blueberry Burst Standard based on recent feedback that Gibson had ramped up their quality control and were now consistently delivering quality instruments. I'm sorry to report that in my experience nothing could be further from the truth. My guitar arrived in literally unplayable condition. Specifically, the neck was so overly bowed and twisted that it left the strings 1/4" of the fretboard. So much for all the boasting about the fancy processing equipment used to ensure the delivery of a perfectly set up "premium quality" instrument. Also, there is an issue with the lacquer they are using on these guitars that promotes a static charge build-up that you CANNOT get rid of. When you run your hand along the back of the neck (like every time you change neck position) it produces static, crackles, and pops that can be heard very clearly through any amp making this guitar completely worthless for recording or playing live. This has been verified by several other guitar techs I spoke with who are very familiar with this ongoing issue with newer Gibsons so it is not an isolated incident. The bottom line is that it is still a crapshoot when you choose to purchase a Gibson and it just shouldn't be that way. Its sad to say but I honestly believe I would have received a better playing instrument if I had order a $99 Affinity Strat! This guitar will be returned and hopefully I will find an alternative brand that cares more about quality control than living off old nostalgia.

Guitar Center comes through for us once again!
Arrived in unopened box with Gibson Security Tape. Got here FAST by free standard shipping. Ordered on a the Monday before Christmas, had it to play on Thursday. Arrived in perfect condition. THANK YOU Guitar Center.
A super fresh guitar, set up at Gibson was on 12-5-16. I was playing it on 12-22-16.
Finish is perfect- no issues anywhere.
Grain match on face is really nice, one of the best I have seen on multiple sites.
Sound is amazing, the sustain is way longer than my fender strat.
Love the by pass and peter green fazing.
Fast & Fun neck profile.
Love the locking tuners

    Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

    This is my first Gibson and I was a but reluctant to spend this much as a beginner, but why have to upgrade later on. Not being able to see this new color in person prior to ordering I was also nervous about ordering it sight unseen. I'm glad I did it though, the bourbon burst is beautiful.

    Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

    It plays exceptionally well and intonation was very, very close when I plugged it in after I let it acclimate .
    It's taking me some time to warm up to the push-pull knob system with the Burstbucker Pro's. The pickups down sound bad, just not what I would call a traditional PAF.

    2017 Standard-Blueberry Burst

    By big air

    from Oregon Coast

    Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

    Guitar Center Delivers again.Thank you for the great service and fast delivery.

    Got this most beautiful 2017 Les Paul Blueberry Burst Standard T this week as a 30th Anniversary gift from awesome wife.
    The finish is completely perfect, not a single issue anywhere.
    Set up was also very good. This guitar is very fresh, the setup was done at the Gibson Nashville factory on December 3 rd 2016. I am playing it on December 22nd 2016,
    This is my first Gibson Les Paul. The sustain is over the top awesome.
    Love the new options on the push pulls.
    The fingerboard is so smooth and the strings bend so easy.
    The nut and bridge are perfect. Excellent color.
    Love the shape and width of the neck, fast and fun.
    Binding on body and neck is perfect.
    The Blueberry burst is perfect for a surfer like me who loves the ocean.
    The grain match is past perfect on the face. I some how got one that looks as good than any others I had seen on any of the on line retailers sites. However the color is not the most important to me, it is the performance, but heck it's good to have an axe that will most likely turns heads too!
    The case fits perfect and is very nice.
    I look forward to playing this for many years.
    Thank you Gibson USA

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

      I've wanted a Les Paul for 15 years, but could never justify dropping that much on a guitar. I picked up a 2017 Standard a few weeks ago and it is so worth it though. The blueberry burst is so gorgeous I could look at it for hours. I'm playing it through a Marshall tube amp and the sound is incredible. And the feel... I had my reservations about the asymmetrical neck, but it plays like a dream. I've played a fair variety of Fenders and other Gibsons, but this is by far the best feeling, sounding, and looking guitar I've played.

          Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar:

          I was hesitant to get a Les Paul, due to experiences from years ago remembering them as heavy, detuning easily etc., The quality and tone of the standard are spectacular, the neck is very comfortable and playable, and it has a sustain I did not get from any other instrument so far. I like the traditional model with regular tuners, just seems less complicated, and everything is just right where it needs to be. Gibson made a stunning guitar suitable for any style, purpose and venue.

            This guitar was my first Les Paul and is by far the best guitar I have ever played. The neck is smooth and fast. The AAA flame maple top is a real eye-catcher. I highly recommend the blueberry burst. The Burstbucker pro humbuckers give great tones that are incredibly versatile thanks to coil-split abilities. This guitar plays like an absolute dream.

              This is a quality instrument. Compared to how my American Standard Strat was delivered, this restored my faith in USA manufacturing. After a setup and new strings it is a pleasure to play. I can't put it down.
              One possible issue is the enormous frets. As a mainly acoustic player, I tend to mash down pretty hard on the strings which can give intonation problems. With a light touch though, no problems. Retraining self.
