What we say:
Gibson’s new 2019 range of instruments is shaping up to be a classic year for electric guitars and basses. Doing away with the more outlandish experiments of recent years, Gibson have delivered a collection that gives guitar players everything they want!
The range is populated by iconic designs, built with all of the features and hardware choices that make sense on heritage-style instruments, in finishes that are well-regarded player favourites. It’s time to get excited about Gibson more than ever!
The Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s model is another great guitar from Gibson’s Original Collection. Offering an alternative to the 50s Les Paul, this 60s model slims down the neck profile and changes out the pickups for a sound and feel that is subtly different.
As with the 50s Les Paul, this 60s model has a Mahogany body with no weight relief. This is overwhelmingly what vintage purists have been asking for and so with this, Gibson prove they have been listening and taking notes! The top is AA Flamed Maple, a perfect choice for visually referencing those immortal 60s Les Pauls!
A gloss nitrocellulose lacquer is used, as you may expect, and there are three finishes to choose from. This particular guitar is 'Unburst' and very much evokes the spirit of the times!
The neck, then, uses Gibson’s ‘Slim Taper’ profile, itself taken from their previous ‘60s’ necks. Whether you prefer the 60s or 50s neck profile is a matter of personal taste: both necks are excellent to play on, and both will give you an authentic Les Paul experience.
A pair of 61R &T Burstbucker pickups have been selected for use on this guitar. These have a little more heat and sizzle than the pickups found on the 50s Les Paul, but the tones are largely in the same ball park. With this guitar, you can bring out classic Blues, Crunchy Rock and beautiful sustained leads, full of bloom and harmonic content. It sounds wonderful.
We are happy to report that the Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s follows the strong ethos of the Original Collection in bringing players the Gibsons they want to play! This guitar is sensibly and sympathetically designed for Les Paul lovers everywhere.
