What we say:
Gibson's most iconic guitar is treated to a range of upgrades this year that preserve the classic beauty of the model and make it one heck of a player's guitar! Is this the best production Les Paul Standard yet?
Starting, as we normally do with, the tone woods, this 2018 LP has ultra weight-relieved Mahogany for the body, capped with no less than AAA grade figured maple for a top that really pops! These are the kinds of tops you normally have to go to the Custom Shop for! A Mahogany neck is customary too and this one has not only an asymmetric taper for playing comfort right up the neck, it also sports a classic Rosewood fingerboard./p>
A pair of Burstbucker Pro pickups supply this guitar with a hotter than PAF output but a tonality that's vintage Gibson all the way! That's not all: each of the four control knobs double up with extra functions via a push/pull: you get a coil tap for each pickup (for skinnier, P90-ish tones), a phase reverse for all of your Peter Green moments and a 'Pure Bypass' which wires the pickups straight to the guitar's output (passing by the tone controls) for an altogether hotter signal. These are all useful additions rather than pointless gimmicks and we applaud Gibson for adding these player-friendly features.
These beautiful guitars (this one is in a new 'instant-favourite' colour named Trans Amber) play and sound like Les Pauls should! And fear not: the circular plastic pickup selector ring is included inside the case! Lots of people have been concerned about that from seeing photos but its a simple matter to fit it on for that classic look! Treat yourself to one of the greatest Les Paul Standard models that Gibson have ever offered.
