The Gibson 2019 Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar sets the standard for all other Les Pauls to follow. Built to Gibson's customary high standards of craftsmanship, this model bears classic features and marries them with modern appointments to create a workhorse that is ready to shine in the studio or strut its stuff on stage. Each model is supplied with a Gibson hardshell case to keep yours safe on the road, as well as an accessory kit to keep your guitar in pristine condition.
The Les Paul Standard
The 2019 Les Paul Standard is built to the same time-tested single-cutaway profile that has won over legions of guitarists since its introduction. The body is crafted using mahogany to establish a rich foundation, whilst the ultra-modern weight relief rout makes it much lighter to wield without compromising on tonal quality. Paired with this is a glorious AAA figured maple top, which is protected by a gloss of nitrocellulose lacquer to preserve the artistry of the paintwork whilst enabling the woods to breathe and resonate unimpeded.
Lightning fast neck design
Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the asymmetrical slimtaper profile to maximise comfort and speed. The neck extends along a generous 24.75-inch scale length to emphasise a warm response from every note. Married to the neck is a sumptuous richlite fingerboard, which is home to 22 cryogenically treated frets that are adorned with mother of pearl trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. The compound fingerboard radius affords a natural playing position for the fretting hand from the TekToid nut to the highest fret.
Burstbucker Pro pickups
The Gibson 2019 Les Paul Standard electric guitar is equipped with a pair of Burstbucker Pro humbuckers, with a Rhythm in the neck and a Lead in the bridge. For coveted vintage style tones, you need look no further than this pair of beauties. Control over the pickups comes in the form of individual volume and tone controls for each, but Gibson have extended the tonal versatility of each one thanks to some enhanced electronics.
There are four push/pull pots at your disposal, as well as a DIP switch that offers over 150 reversible instant rewiring options to be explored. The result is one of the most versatile models that you can get your hands on, perfect for studio recording and/or live performances that gives your imagination the freedom to run wild!
The TekToid nut maintains string stability whilst the Grover locking Rotomatic tuning machines with keystone buttons uphold tuning integrity dutifully. The headstock is angled to Gibson's 17-degree standard to uphold string tension precisely. Fitted to the body is an aluminium Nashville tune-o-matic bridge, which works with the aluminium stop bar tailpiece to anchor each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain.
