    "Outstanding Example"

    First I would like to thank Jeremy for helping me make this purchase. Jeremy made the entire process stress free. Mine is Heritage Cherry Sunburst. I have been playing guitar for 35+ years and own ~ 18 guitars which I accumulated along my musical journey. I felt compelled to write this review because the 2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard is a solid example of a company "getting it right". My guitar has locking Grover Tuners, a really consistent rosewood fretboard, beautiful finish, and GREAT pickup's. I love Alnico pickup's but I have an SG with Burstbucker #1 & #2 which have Alnoco II magnets. I love the build of the guitar but disliked the sound of the pickup's and couldn't see the need for all the push/pull options. Well, I switched up my SG to my liking and I am so happy that my Les Paul has "Pro Buckers" which have Alnico V magnets. I actually appreciate all the push/pull features my Les Paul has. I feel this is the BEST Les Paul I have been able to find in modern times. Gibson really got it right with all the above mentioned appointments. I will own this guitar for life. The look, sound, feel, and build quality are awesome. It's a shame that Gibson changed the Les Paul Standard once again for 2014. I really wish Gibson would keep some of their models the same. To me, there are just too many choices and constant changes in pickup's and features that as a customer it just causes confusion and disappointment. So, thanks again Jeremy. I'm very happy with my 2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard in Heritage Cherry Sunburst and I feel extremely fortunate that I received the Les Paul with the features that suite my playing style.

    LP Standard 2013

    I splurged on this guitar to compliment my Strat. Now it's my absolute favorite guitar I've ever played. It's also absolutely gorgeous. Mine looks like a AAA top :-). Her name is Becky Lou Gibson.

    The ability to see the actual guitar your buying at Sweetwater is fantastic as is there customer service. My rep Aaron is fantastic even with small purchases. I'll be a life long customer of Sweetwater! Best buying experience I've ever had on the web!
