Overview

The Gibson Limited-Edition Original Les Paul Standard ’60s marks a welcome return for a guitar that had a limited run in the first place. The original production ended in 1961; in total, Gibson only made 1,700 of these instruments, which makes this edition all the more desirable. Finished in breathtaking Tri-Burst, this Standard features a slab mahogany body topped with AA grade flame maple. Powered by dual Burstbuckers with period-correct orange drop caps, it's a perfect guitar for players who want a classic Les Paul without having to pay a vintage price.

Main Features

AA flame maple top over slab mahogany body
Slim taper 60's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard
Gibson Burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups, orange drop capacitors, audio taper potentiometers
Tune-o-matic bridge, aluminum stopbar tailpiece, Grover Rotomatic Kidney tuners

Tonewoods and Finish

When it comes to mahogany bodies, Gibson has always been the king. On the Original Les Paul Standard ’60s, it's topped with AA flame maple and finished in Tri-Burst with nitro lacquer. Tri-Burst is period-correct, making its debut in 1968.

A Slim, Fast Neck

In the 1950s, Gibson was known for its beefy necks, known affectionately (or not) as "tree trunks" and "baseball bats." As the new decade approached, Gibson got rid of girth to create a "slim taper" design, and that's the profile used on this Les Paul Standard. Expect faster play without hand strain—it's just that comfortable. The fretboard is rosewood with a Gibson-standard 12" radius.

Classic Sounds and Electronics

Burstbuckers replicate the holy grail tones of Gibson's mighty PAF pickups. The 61/R and 61/T Burstbuckers in this model are made with alnico V magnets, and are wound for a classic voice with added power and top end. Hand-wired orange drop capacitors and audio taper potentiometers are another feature from the ‘60s replicated here.

Historic Hardware

In the early ‘50s, most guitars featured wooden bridges that offered few adjustment options. Changing the string gauge could knock the guitar completely out of whack. Gibson's tune-o-matic bridge solved this problem. The Original Les Paul Standard ‘60s features this historic game changer; paired with an aluminum stopbar tailpiece, this guitar will sustain for days. The Grover Rotomatic tuners have Kidney buttons with a sealed, high-ratio design for accurate tuning.

Other highlights include trapezoid fretboard inlays, gold top hat knobs with silver reflectors and a Graph Tech nut.

The Gibson Limited-Edition Original Les Paul Standard ‘60s comes with a hardshell case.
