The Gibson Custom Modern Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar takes the classic style of the Les Paul and adds modern improvements that make it better than ever before. By employing high quality tonewoods, unique craftsmanship, and peerless hardware, this is a guitar that brings back the joy of playing guitar.
Shaped to the instantly recognisable single-cutaway body shape, the Modern Les Paul Standard is built using a classic tonewood, mahogany. However, unlike its heavier solid body siblings, this cheeky little number has been treated to a completely chambered design. Not only do you get the classic midrange warmth we've all come to know and love, but an exceptionally lightweight playing feel is included too. You can perform to your heart's content in total comfort.
Paired with the mahogany is a glorious two-piece figured maple top, which has been treated to a stylish finish. The body is coated in a protective nitrocellulose lacquer, so that your pride and joy can grow old gracefully.
The Modern Les Paul Standard is fitted with a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to the medium C-shape profile to guarantee an unyielding playing support. Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are decorated with pearloid trapezoid position inlays to guide your way in style. At the top of the neck you'll find the Apex headstock, which is designed to improve stability for increased playing confidence.
Fitted in the neck and bridge position are the BurstBucker 2 and 3 pickups, a pairing that delivers a veritable feast of tone. From thickened low-mids to low-end through a smooth mid-range to sizzling highs, this pair of humbuckers awaits your command. Shaping your sound can be done with the most minute of touches, with 500K pots on hand to ensure deft precision.
Hardware and Finish
The headstock is fitted with Kluson Deluxe tuning keys, which uphold tuning integrity with precision. The body is equipped with an ABR-1 bridge and stop bar tailpiece, which optimise intonation and sustain for peerless performances. A delightful single-ply cream pickguard accentuates the finish, whilst amber top hot control knobs complete the look. Keeping your new axe protected could not be more straightforward, as Gibson include a Brown/Pink Custom Shop hardcase with every model.
