Top Tonewoods Meet Modern Gibson Advancements

The pinnacle of Gibson's 2016 lineup, the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP guitar combines top-shelf tonewoods with performance-focused features. Updated G-Force electronics deliver faster, more precise automated tuning than ever. The fast-access heel provides exceptional access to the upper frets. Titanium saddles and an adjustable zero-fret nut ensure precise action and intonation. And the asymmetrical SlimTaper neck profile, the wider Soloist neck width, and the compound-radius fretboard set an outstanding foundation for fast playing and tapping. From looks and feel to tone and long-term performance, the Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP has you covered.

Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Plek'd for precision playability
  • Compound-radius fretboard
  • Slim neck profile with wider Soloist neck width
  • Dip switches give you access to over 100 tonal options
Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to Plek processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.

Compound-radius fretboard

The Les Paul Standard features a 10"-16" 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. With a neck that plays this slick, you'll be up at the highest frets before you know it.

Slim neck profile with wider Soloist neck width

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP sports a fast, wide neck with a SlimTaper profile, perfect for modern players who push the speed limit. The wider Soloist neck width gives you more room for big bends and tapping than the traditional LP neck width. And the asymmetrical SlimTaper profile gives you the speed of a thin neck with the chording stability of a rounder neck. It's a great balance for players who love Les Paul tone but prefer a faster, thinner neck.

Dip switches give you access to over 100 tonal options

The Gibson HPs are some of the most sonically versatile electric guitars Gibson has ever offered. The tone and volume controls on the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP are a push-pull design, and five internal dip switches determine how these controls work. By setting these dip switches to your preference you can access coil-splits and coil-taps, a highpass filter for each pickup, determine if you want the pickups to be in or out of phase, and even engage a transient supression circuit for avoiding unwanted output peaks when recording direct.

Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Les Paul style with maple top and modern appointments
  • Modern weight-relieved mahogany body reduces weight while maintaining sustain
  • Compound-radius fretboard makes it easier to switch between rhythm and lead roles
  • Dual push-pull volume controls switch pickups between single-coil and humbucking operation
  • Push-pull neck tone control reverses polarity of the neck pickup's output
  • Push-pull bridge tone control switches bridge pickup to Pure Bypass mode, bypassing the tone circuit for hot, biting tone at the pull of a knob
  • Sturdier, noiseless toggle switch
  • Tune up fast and precise with G-Force automated tuning
  • Fast-access heel improves access to upper frets
  • Innovative dip switches give you over 100 options for customizing your sound
  • Adjustable titanium zero-fret nut allows you to fine-tune your action
