What we say:
At A Glance:
The Les Paul Standard '50s has been designed with the intention of grouping together the features that typify this period for Gibson. Without being a specific vintage reissue, this model will deliver a definitive Les Paul experience!
The body of this model has zero weight relief, a bonus for Les Paul aficionados, some who believe the drill holes used by Gibson to remove the heft of a solid mahogany body, take with them some of the tone. Alas, Gibson have listened to those who are after a 'full fat' Les Paul and have delivered exactly that.
Features We Love:
Full Fat Les Paul
A point of contention, some believe that the chambered body of newer Les Pauls can have a thinner tone than what you would expect to get from a Les Paul. This model has none of that! This mahogany body has zero weight relief giving you the 'full fat' Les Paul tone so many desire. But make sure your shoulder is ready for the heft!
Vintage '50s Neck
Some what more substantial than Gibson's 'Slim Taper' neck profile, the 'Vintage '50s' neck feels great in your hands and is fantastic for both rhythm and lead playing. We'd even go as far as to say that larger necks are more comfortable over a longer period of time rockin' out!
Who Is It For?
Those seeking a true heavy weight Les Paul experience. The non-weight relieved body and vintage feeling neck are perfect for capturing that classic full fat rock tone.
- Zero weight relief, giving the 'full fat' Les Paul tone
- The larger 'Vintage '50s' neck feels great and will have you playing all night long!
