The Inspired By Warren Haynes Les Paul Standard features a solid mahogany body with a carved plain maple top, a one-piece mahogany neck and a rosewood fretboard. Burstbucker pickups provide the big, warm sound for which Warren is famous. The finish, handpicked by Warren, is a beautiful burst whose color is somewhere between lemondrop and iced tea. The included CAE Sound preamp has a unity-gain buffer that, when activated, maintains a consistent tone when volume is lowered. It also preserves signal strength and quality when running through multiple effects. It was important for Warren to have balance between the pickups, to have a smooth sound from the neck pickup, and that when you flip the pickup switch, it doesn't sound like you just switched guitars. He also felt strongly that the bridge pickup never bite your head off. This Inspired By Standard is very successful on all accounts!
Single ply cream binding on the top and fingerboard, reissue trapezoid inlays, a bone nut, nickel plated hardware, amber top hat knobs and vintage tuners unite to make this one beautiful axe. Schaller strap locks keep it safe.
From his start with country hell raiser David Allan Coe, to 16 years with the Allman Brothers, to the heavy and melodic improvisation of Gov't Mule, Warren Haynes has blazed a trail that draws on the best of American music. With the voice of an old-school soul shouter and the guitar prowess of a legend, Haynes is both a formidable bandleader and a blistering sideman. And with his carefully crafted Les Paul Standard, the Gibson Custom Shop is proud to welcome Warren into the Inspired By series of great artists and great guitars.

I just got this guitar about a week ago. When I first receive this guitar I was so excited it finally came! When I open the case I was AMAZED the finish was the best and oh man just by staring at it I already fell in love, after staring for about 15 minutes I cannot wait to play it so I plugged it in to my fender twin reverb 100 watt and OH MAN the sound is nothing you could get to any normal guitar! I play blues so this guitar give's you a very "unique" bluesy tone! This is probably my second bestest guitar out of all my guitars. Of course the first one is the 59 reissue but that's another story. Anyway after trying the blues JUST the blues I was satisfied with the guitar. I haven't tried this guitar with other tone like metal-like tones yet because I am a blues guy maybe when I do I'd write another review, BUT I super highly recommend this to anyone who got the money, you should go for it! it won't disappoint you!
