The luthiers at Gibson Custom shop welcome you to the new Les Paul Axcess Stopbar, an electric guitar which gives you all the wonder of a favoured Les Paul sound but with some additional, more comfortable appointments. With the sheer attitude of the humbucker pickups combined with its special design, it's no wonder that famous guitarists such as Alex Lifeson and Tommy Shaw have made it their primary choice. This is purely down to its incredible feel, or as Gibson say, "contoured for comfort", making it the ultimate choice for any electric guitar player.


An often prevalent feature in the design of a Les Paul is the need for a maple / mahogany partnership. The 2016 CS Les Paul Axcess has a top constructed from two pieces of maple which is then paired with a solid mahogany body. For the Axcess model, it has a thinner body depth which consequently ensures the guitar has a lighter feel, perfect for the performing musician who has to stand on stage for hours on end. Furthermore, the back of the body has a belly carve which ensures the guitar stays close to your body while you play, providing you with a flawless feel.


A durable, one-piece mahogany neck is firmly fitted to the body and is shaped to the Les Paul Axcess profile. One of the best features of the guitar has to be its Axcess heel carve, which is what allows you to explore each and every fret without obstruction. There are 22 frets at your service on a sumptuous richlite fingerboard, paired with multi-ply binding which contributes to effortless fret transitions.


The 2016 CS Les Paul Axcess is equipped with 496R and 498T pickups which deliver an illuminous range of searing humbucker tones. Each pickup is powered by a ceramic magnet with #42 enamel wiring for a truly powerful sound delivery. For biting, crunchy rock or clean tones full of sustain, the pairing of a 496R and 498T pickup is sublime.

Four control knobs sit to the lower bout of the guitar for lead and rhythm Volume and Tone, and a three-way pickup switch allows you to adjust your sound to suit your playing needs.


Gibson Custom have opted for a traditional hardware choice in the appointment of a Tune-o-Matic bridge with a stopbar tailpiece, both of which are gold, standing out against the beautiful gloss finish of the guitar. This conventional partnership improves the sustain and intonation of this superb Les Paul.

The quintessential Gibson Custom headstock is fitted with gold LP Custom tuning keys which work tirelessly to uphold tuning integrity.

The 2016 CS Les Paul Axcess includes a black LP Custom hard case for added protection when out on the road, as well as a Gibson Custom Shop Certificate of Authenticity.
