The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar brings with it a catalogue of ground-breaking developments that makes it better than ever before. The Standard T is perfect for gigging professionals who need a comfortable to play yet rugged and resilient workhorse, which looks as beautiful as it sounds.
Classic Les Paul design, modern brilliance
In keeping with classic Les Paul design, the body is crafted using a combination of mahogany and maple to establish a firm foundation for legendary tone. The two-piece mahogany back has been treated to Gibson's new ultra-modern weight relief rout, which makes this guitar an astonishingly lightweight 5lbs or less. Though the body may be thankfully lighter in weight, the Standard T retains the classic Les Paul energy and power.
Paired with the mahogany is a sublime AAA grade flamed maple top with cream binding. Smooth hi-gloss 90 sheen lacquer has been used to treat the wood to preserve the finish, allowing it to age gracefully. The more you play this beauty, the more its character can develop and shine.
Improved neck profile
Fitted to the body via a classic mortis and tenon joint is the single piece mahogany neck, which is reinforced using Franklin Titebond 50 adhesive for a firm and reassuring playing feel. A newly applied asymmetrical slimtaper neck profile provides a fast and comfortable playing feel, which is tailored to meet the demands of today's versatile players.
Married to the neck is a heavenly 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with a compound-radius and rolled binding to heighten playing comfort, speed, and string-bending ability. Navigating the fingerboard is aided by the trapezoid inlays and side dot fret markers.
Resilient, stage-ready hardware
The TekToid nut guarantees a flush seat for each string to ensure great sustain. The headstock is home to Grover locking kidney tuning machines with an impressive 18:01 gear ratio, which uphold tuning integrity resolutely throughout each performance.
The body is home to the aluminium Tune-o-Matic bridge with titanium saddles and locking thumbwheels, which is paired with an aluminium stop bar with locking studs. The bridge and tailpiece partnership works dutifully to ensure intonation and sustain is optimised so that your Les Paul sings beautifully, and with the richness it deserves.
Burstbucker Pro humbucker pickups
The Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard T Electric Guitar has been treated to a pair of Burstbucker Pro Rhythm and Lead humbuckers, fitted in the neck and bridge positions respectively. The Burstbuckers produce the same glorious Gibson tones we all know and love, with a little added bite compared to their model T counterparts.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of new push-pull knurled knobs, which are finished in chrome to accentuate the stunning body finish. The switchable functions on offer are: to Tap or Split either pickup; activate an integrated High Pass Filter; or introduce transient suppression. The range of tones on offer is truly staggering, and you'll wonder how you ever got by without this guitar in your arsenal during any studio session or tour.Included Accessories
