What we say:
At A Glance:
The Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s model is yet another fantastic guitar from Gibson's Original Collection. Bringing to the table an alternative to the '50s Les Paul Standard, this '60s version comes with a slimmer neck profile and swaps the pickups for a sound subtly different to that of the '50s Standard.
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!
Slim Taper Neck Profile
The neck profile of a guitar is greatly important to how it feels when playing. The Slim Taper shape on this model offers comfort for the player and gives access to the higher frets allowing you to reach all the way to the top of the fretboard when you're rocking out! However, this is a Gibson after all, although named 'Slim Taper' there is still plenty to grab on to.
61R/T Burstbucker Pickups
Differing from the '50s Standard Les Paul, the burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups selected for this model offer a little more heat and sizzle. With this guitar you'll be suited to playing Blues, Crunchy Rock, and great sustained leads. It sounds wonderful!
- 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!
- 61R/T Burstbucker pickups offer blazing tones and sustain for days!
