The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s Figured Top electric guitar serves up vintage-inspired tone and looks. This solidbody stunner features a figured maple top on a mahogany back, just like the original. Its rounded '50s neck profile and trapezoid inlays evoke the era that shaped rock and roll. The Les Paul Standard '50s is ready to inspire you.

Burstbucker Pickups Provide Classic Gibson Voice

The Les Paul Standard '50s features calibrated Burstbucker 1 neck and Burstbucker 2 bridge pickups for authentic PAF-style tone. These Alnico II magnet pickups are wound to vintage specifications for rich, warm tone with singing sustain. Combined with hand-wired controls and Orange Drop capacitors, the Burstbuckers let you dial in a wealth of vintage-inspired sounds from bluesy warmth to all-out rock aggression.

Timeless Construction, Legendary Playability

With a mahogany body and maple top finished in glossy nitrocellulose lacquer, the Les Paul Standard '50s looks stunning and resonates fully. Its rounded mahogany neck has a comfortable medium profile that plays fast and feels like an old friend. 22 medium jumbo frets make bending strings a breeze. An ABR-1 Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece anchor the strings securely while maintaining optimum resonance.

A Classic Reborn for Today's Player

While the Les Paul Standard '50s is a tribute to Gibson's Golden Era, it has modern reliability and playability. Its single-action truss rod lets you adjust neck relief with ease. Vintage Deluxe tuners keep it in tune through heavy use. A 1.695" nut provides ample room for complex chords and leads. This marriage of vintage vibe and contemporary dependability makes the Les Paul Standard '50s a perfect guitar for players of today exploring the sounds of yesterday.
