The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard Floyd Rose Electric Guitar in Iced Tea takes the iconic model that many a guitarist has lusted after for decades, and makes it even better than ever before. The Axcess Standard adheres closely to the solidbody brilliance of the LP, but makes it even more of a joy to wield thanks to an improved neck heel design. The inclusion of the enigmatic Floyd Rose tremolo offers peerless vibrato control. Put it all together, and you've got a pro-level guitar that is destined for greatness.
Maple and mahogany partnership
A dominant feature often found in Les Paul guitars is the combination of maple and mahogany in the body. The Les Paul Axcess Standard has a carved maple top, which is finished in a glorious Iced Tea that is protected by a slender layer of gloss. Paired with the maple top is a solid mahogany body, which establishes a firm, resounding midrange timbre. Modern weight-relief has been employed to take the heavy feel out of the guitar, giving you the best of both worlds - unrelenting sustain with a lightweight playing feel. Whether you're laying down licks in the studio or wowing your adoring fans on the stage, you can do it in style without the back ache.
Solid mahogany neck
Fitted to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is shaped to a rounded profile that extends to a contoured rib-cage heel cut. The heel design enables the body of the guitar to rest snugly against you for increased playing comfort. Married to the neck is a heavenly 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, which offers a wonderful playground for your fingers to explore. As always, the sleek single-cutaway design affords easier access to the upper frets to give you total mastery over the fingerboard.
Beautiful 496R AND 498T pickups
The 496R and 498T pickups are a pair of hot humbuckers which really help your tone shine through this solidbody electric guitar. They are powerful and energetic pickups which have incredible sustain and a lot of bite that can add definition to your sound. The pickups are wax-potted to completely reduce any possible feedback and both pickups allow you to play anything from bright, clean tones to crunchy rock.
Individual volume and tone controls for each pickup allow you to shape and carve out your tone to perfection, whilst a three-way pickup selector switch enables you to choose either independently or both simultaneously. Whether you're performing fat and thick bluesy numbers, tight and articulate jazz, or in your face rock and metal, the Les Paul Axcess Standard is equipped to do it all.
Hardware and finish
The Les Paul Axcess Standard is fitted with a Floyd Rose tremolo bridge and tailpiece with an R4 locking nut, which allows you to dive and wail to your heart's content. The sturdiness of this design is truly remarkable, and you can rest assured that no matter how much abuse you give it, the bridge and tailpiece will bounce back in style every time.
The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard is a breath-taking model which brings together a partnership of traditional features and modern upgrades to bring the Les Paul guitar right up to scratch in our present day. To keep the Axcess protected and in as good as new condition, Gibson supply a hardshell case with every model, as well as a certificate of authenticity.
