Coil Tapped Pickups Make This a Versatile Les Paul!

On the stage or in the studio, you can't beat the Gibson Les Paul Standard solidbody electric guitar for iconic vintage tone with uncompromising playability. You'll love the Les Paul Standard's premium features, like the Modern weight-relieved body that's lighter in weight but still packs ample sustain. The mahogany neck sports the '60s neck profile for fast and fluid fretwork, and the compound-radius rosewood fretboard makes the Les Paul Standard perfect for both rhythm and lead roles. And with dual Burstbucker Pro pickups, with coil tapping to switch between humbucking and single-coil pickup operation, you'll have all the classic guitar tone you can handle with the Gibson Les Paul Standard solidbody electric guitar!

Gibson Les Paul Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Classic combination of a mahogany body and maple top
  • Compound-radius fretboard
  • Burstbucker pickups deliver that timeless PAF humbucker tone
  • Plek'd for precision playability
Classic combination of a mahogany body and maple top

To give the Les Paul Standard a rich sound without excessive weight, Gibson began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select maple top and adding weight-relieving chambers. Sweetwater guitarists love the LP warmth without a sore shoulder. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound.

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.

Burstbucker pickups deliver that timeless PAF humbucker tone

When it comes to capturing that classic Les Paul tone, nothing beats the sound of the Les Paul Standard's Burstbucker pickups. You'll love the tight low end, complex midrange, and sweet highs you'll get out of these pickups - it's everything you expect when you pick up a Les Paul. And for more tonal flexibility than ever, the Les Paul Standard sports coil tapping electronics that let you select from single-coil or humbucking tones - you can even reverse the phase of the neck pickup for more mojo.

Plek'd for precision playability

This Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 T 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.

Gibson Les Paul Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Modern weight-relieved mahogany body reduces weight while maintaining sustain
  • Compound-radius fretboard makes it easy 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 phase 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
