Gibson 2013 Les Paul Standard Plus Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with AAA figured maple top
Gibson's 2013 Les Paul Standard Plus gives you the robust sustain you need for hot liquid solos and massive power chords. What's Gibson's secret? A major part of the Les Paul's tonewood recipe is the fusion of a maple top - exquisite AAA figured maple to be precise - on a mahogany body. This combination is largely responsible for the legendary Les Paul sound, as well the LP's reputation for being rather heavy. But fear not! Modern weight relief has been scientifically applied to the Les Paul Standard, giving you all the sustain, without the pain.
'60s neck profile with compound radius fingerboard for effortless playability
Many guitarists consider Gibson's Slim-Taper neck the most playable Les Paul neck ever made. On the LP Standard Plus, it's joined by a compound radius fretboard for ultimate playability. The fingerboard is rounder near the nut for easy chord-grabbing and rhythm playing. As your playing heats up and moves up the fretboard, the radius flattens out for easier runs and big, big string bends.
Pickups deliver true Les Paul sound - and then some
The 2013 Les Paul Standard Plus features Burstbucker Pro pickups that give you everything you need for a classic humbucking sound. But there's more! The volume and tone knobs feature a push-pull configuration that allows you to choose between classic humbuckers and single coils. You can run both pickups alongside each other in or out of phase, and you can even send the bridge pickup directly to the jack output for added volume and brightness.

Amazing Les Paul

I have never had a Les Paul as beautiful as this. I love the honey burst finish. The Sweetwater images were a bit too over saturated, hence the color was not correct and seemed more cherry burst than honey burst. I took this into consideration and my guess proved correct.
The neck is a surprise as I was expecting a slightly flatter ES-335 60's profile. This neck is a little thicker but fits the Les Paul more, I do love the neck very much.
The pick-up configuration is a blessing as I can play many more songs live without swapping guitars. Having options is really brilliant. The burst buckers sound wonderful, I am astounded how warm and soft they sound turned down a little and then bright and punchy once they are cranked up.
Overall the Sweetwater experience is fantastic. They look after every thing I asked for and even discussed the shipping with weather considerations in mind. They are just brilliant to deal with. close [-]
by Eric Bennett from Minneapolis MinnesotaI've been waiting to get a Les Paul since 7th grade when my friend Stan whose father had a black Les Paul Custom turned me onto blizzard of Ozz. This would have been 1980 or so. Fast forward to 2013, ... read more [+]and I decided to buy my own Les Paul Standard finally. This guitar feels no heavier then my Fender Strat. It stays in tune quite well for a Les Paul thanks to the Grover locking tuners. The Burstbucker pickups in combination with the mahogany body are amazing! The output is surprising, as is the sustain. But what I love most is the way sustained chords decay into harmonic overtones. The intonation of this guitar is also very good. There are no dead spots on the fretboard and no buzzing. The neck is very fast and playable. Even my friend who plays a Jem was shocked. Yes, this guitar is expensive for the average player. But if you wanted a Les Paul for as long as I have, you will not be disappointed if you decide to buy this one. I also have to give credit to my sweet water rep Chris. The treatment I've received over the years with Chris and Sweetwater is second to none. close [-]
