About Gibson Les Paul Standard
The Gibson Les Paul Standard is Gibson's most iconic guitar. This is the very guitar that Jimmy Page and Slash proudly wield. Made popular during the 'British Invasion' of the mid 60s, nothing makes an amp sing like a Gibson Les Paul Standard!
Gibson released their Les Paul Signature model back in 1952 and revised it to sport two humbuckers in 1957 but it is the fabled 1958-60 'Sunburst' version that most people tend to envision when they think of the Gibson Les Paul. Its carved Maple top, striped like a Tiger and painted in shades of lemon-amber and cherry red hold the imagination like no other guitar model before or since.
The Les Paul Standard's legendary growl and sustain is the result of several factors combining perfectly: the solid Mahogany body, a glued neck effectively transforming the entire guitar into a single vibrating piece of wood and the PAF pickups which themselves are deemed holy grail objects to tone connoisseurs everywhere.
Nowadays, Gibson offer a dizzying range of Les Paul Standard models, both vintage reissues and modern reinterpretations. There has never been a better time to buy an American made Gibson Les Paul Standard. There is seemingly a model for every type of player and taste. Goldtops, triple A-grade Burst tops, special switching, you name it.
