- Mahogany body with AAA flamed maple top
- '60s neck profile with compound radius fingerboard
- Burstbucker Pro pickups with coil taps
Gibson's Les Paul Standard Premium 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 - AAA flamed maple on the Premium Plus - 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
Many guitarists consider Gibson's Slim Taper neck the most playable Les Paul neck ever made. On the LP Standard Premium 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 2012 Les Paul Standard Premium 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.
