The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard Electric Guitar takes the classic Les Paul Standard model and adds a handful of upgrades, to maximise playability and versatility.
The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard Electric Guitar takes the classis duo of a carved maple top and a mahogany body and shapes them to form the iconic, unchanged silhouette of the late 1950s.
Where you start to feel the difference with the Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard is with the back of the body. With its belly scarf (or ribcage contour) you can hold the guitar closer to you without it digging in, it is also slightly thinner and the mahogany body is weight-relieved. All of these details bring you a guitar that is much more comfortable to play and handle.
From the front, the Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard’s is indistinguishable from other Les Pauls. However, the back of the neck has been altered to give a heelless feel, by specially contouring the neck heel and portions of the back and neck joint at the cutaway, which, as the name of the guitar suggests, gives you unprecedented access to the upper frets, all the way to the 22nd. The material that makes up the neck remains the same, with its one-piece mahogany construction topped by a rosewood fingerboard.
Giving you the sound to match its playability, the Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard lElectric Guitar is equipped with a pair of uncovered Gibson humbuckers: a 496R in the neck position, and a 498T in the bridge. This combination offers an exceptionally wide tonal palette, from crunching leads and warm vocal tones, to fat growls. In addition push/pull switches on each of the pickup’s tone knobs allows for coil-splitting, giving you access to hum-free single-coil tones.
