The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar with Fireball finish is an exceptional model that delivers the raw intensity and power of a Les Paul, with a sublime and stylish finish to match. Each model is built with the utmost care, with a hardshell case included with every model.
Classic Les Paul' Tones
The 2016 Les Paul Standard T electric guitar is built using the long-time partnership of solid mahogany, which is paired with a glorious AAA-Grade flamed maple top. The mahogany is responsible for laying the foundation of power and warmth that Les Pauls are known for, producing enduring sustain that is permeated by a delightfully smooth character. The mahogany has been treated to Gibson's modern weight-relieved body construction, giving it the perfect combination of power with a lightweight playing feel to make this model a true joy to perform with.
As previously noted, paired with the mahogany is a beautiful AAA-Grade flamed maple top, which creates a sweetly nuanced balance across each note to guarantee the well-rounded tone that makes the Les Paul so special. The mesmerising Fireball finish is protected by a nitrocellulose finish, which provides protection whilst allowing the body tonewoods to resonate fully to generate immaculate tones.
Sleek Yet Sturdy Neck
The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T has been fitted with a divine mahogany neck, which is shaped to the slender 60s-style profile that sits comfortably in the hand. The 24.75" scale length offers a generous platform for the strings to resonate along without feeling like a stretch as you perform elaborate licks and chops. Paired with the neck is a single-piece rosewood fingerboard, which is adorned with trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The combination of mahogany and rosewood - along with the hand-finished set-up -, guarantees a fast-playing feel with the utmost comfort.
Burstbucker Pro Humbuckers
At your disposal is a pair of highly versatile Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups, which provide you with a dazzling array of tones to play with. Each pickup is equipped with individual tone controls, as well as volume controls that have push-pull coil-tapping capabilities. Therefore, as well as the silk-like smoothness of humbuckers on offer, you can split the coils of each pickup to access a range of single-coil tones. You can combine the pickup in or out of phase for a tighter or grittier output depending on your preference - expanding your tonal arsenal instantly. Whatever style of music you play, you have a whole universe of tones to explore, which can be done with absolute precision.
The Gibson 2016 Les Paul Standard T electric guitar benefits from excellent hardware appointments that work in unison to ensure your tone and playing feel remains pristine throughout each and every performance. The headstock is home to Grover traditional locking tuning machines, which is paired with a Graph Tech nut to uphold tuning integrity and string tension. The body is fitted with a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece, a tried and tested partnership that creates a seamless connection between the strings and body to optimise sustain and intonation.
