Details

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s Electric Guitar in Gold Top is a return to the classic design that made the Les Paul an icon of rock and roll. Crafted to the same spec as the guitars from Gibson's Golden Era of innovation, this guitar is authenticity personified, no weight relief here just pure vintage heritage.

Solid Mahogany Body

With a solid Mahogany body, the Les Paul Standard 50s ensures warmth of tone and sustain for days. Alongside the characteristic Les Paul depth and fullness of tone you get a fantastic bite in the high registers, making this guitar great for a variety of styles, whether its big blues bends or hard rock riffs. A beautiful Maple top works fantastically well with the body to give you looks and tone so revered by guitarists the world over.

Vintage 50s Neck profile

Joined to the single cutaway body is a Vintage 50s profile Mahogany neck. Working in conjunction with the body the neck allows bends to ring out, fast legato to come with ease and riffing aplenty. The Rosewood fretboard is smooth and comfortable with 22 frets to ensure you hit every note when playing. The Acrylic Trapezoid inlays give you those classic Les Paul looks whilst ensuring you never lose your way on even the darkest of stages.

Brilliant Burstbuckers

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s has a pair of Burstbucker pickups with Alnico II magnets, to give you all those classic rock and blues tones utilised by legendary players the world over. With the characteristic Burstbucker bite and audio taper potentiometers, you get clarity and depth of tone whether you're chicken or tremolo picking. The electronics are hand wired with Orange Drop Capacitors to ensure consistent and quality tone, having been used by Gibson for years for good reason.

Hard-Wearing Hardware

An ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic with Aluminium Stopbar continues the theme of old school ancestry, working in conjunction with the Vintage Deluxe tuning machines to ensure the strings stay in tune, even when doing two-tone bends. Keystone Button tuning heads complement the classic aesthetic alongside the Amber Top Hat controls with Pointers.
