Returns Policy



The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard Figured Walnut Limited Run Electric Guitar with Natural finish is more a work of art than an instrument. The combination of sumptuous tonewoods, sublime natural finish, exquisitely designed pickups, and carefully considered hardware appointments, guarantees that this model stands out from the crowd as a thing of pure, unadulterated beauty to be cherished.

Style with substance

The instantly recognisable single-cutaway Les Paul body shape is present and correct, but the usual tonewood partnership of mahogany/maple has been traded for a mahogany/walnut combo instead. The power and warmth produced by the mahogany is tempered by the crisp character of the walnut, whilst the wood of the tonewoods is proudly displayed through a translucent protective layer of smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer. Cream binding traces around the edge of the top. The body has been treated to modern weight relief routing, making the guitar significantly lighter in weight and therefore, much more comfortable to perform with.

The body is home to the zamak tune-o-matic bridge with titanium saddles for greater resilience, which is paired with zamak stopbar tailpiece to create a seamless connection between the strings to optimise intonation and sustain. Anodized aluminium strap buttons provide ample grip to hold your strap securely.

Neck and Fingerboard

Fitted to the body is a single-piece mahogany neck, which is fixed using a classic mortis and tenon joint for substantial strength, and is reinforced with Titebond adhesive. The neck is shaped to a 1950s' profile, which creates an accommodating feel that is substantial without becoming cumbersome. Married to the neck is an Ironwood fingerboard, which is home to 22-frets that are adorned with mother of pearl trapezoid inlays to guide your way in style. The fingerboard is shaped to a 12-inch radius, favoured by Gibson as it lends itself superbly to the execution of smooth string bends and greater freedom of movement across the strings.

At the top of the neck you'll find the headstock, which is set to Gibson's customary angle of 17-degrees to improve string tension across each string. The self-lubricating Tektoid nut guarantees durability throughout the most taxing of performances, minimising the risk of string breakages. Grover locking kidney tuning machines with an 18:1 gear ratio upholds tuning integrity with outstanding precision, whilst working harmoniously with the nut to maintain accurate string tension.

"Golden Era" Tones

To ensure the visual elegance of this limited run model was matched by luxurious tones, Gibson fitted a '57 Classic humbucker in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge, creating the coveted 'vintage' PAF-style tone. The '57 Classic has two balanced coils, enabling it to sing with a creamy warmth that is undercut with a subtle edginess that breaks up a little at high volume. The '57 Classic Plus is overwound to create a much more aggressive output that is fantastic for high gain crunch that manages to retain its brilliance and warmth.

Control over the pickups comes in the form of independent volume and tone controls that are accessible via the delightful amber "Top Hat" knobs. A three-way pickup selector switch is on hand for quick changes on-the-fly. The backplate and switch plate covers are made from stainless steel infused polycarbonate for electrostatic discharge protection to prevent unwanted damage to the internal circuitry and components.

Included Accessories

To preserve your new pride and joy at home or on the move, Gibson has included a brown hardshell case. In addition, each model is supplied with a truss rod wrench and Gibson USA owner's manual.
