Two BurstBucker pickups give you the ultimate in classic Les Paul tone

In 1958 the Les Paul got an "upgrade" to two humbucking pickups, which were designed by Gibson's Seth Lover and are widely called "PAFs" because early examples had "Patent Applied For" stickers on the underside. In the beginning there were just two pickup options for guitar players: single-coil P-90s or humbuckers. But early on, most players didn't fully realize the significance of the two designs. It wasn't until Eric Clapton plugged a Les Paul into a Marshall amp that the light went on in many players heads: Aha! Humbuckers equal big, fat tone! But by that time, the Les Paul guitar had been discontinued, leading players to search second-hand music stores for "used" Les Pauls. The Gibson Custom Les Paul Standard Siberian Tiger is equipped with two of the best humbucking pickups Gibson has ever produced: BurstBuckers! With a tight low-end, complex midrange and sweet treble, the sound is everything you'd ever want from a Les Paul.

Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, for classic looks and feel

The Gibson Custom Les Paul Standard Siberian Tiger wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the guitar to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look vintage-y wonderful; they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. This guitar has the look (and feel) of a classic guitar. (It is!)

Includes Custom Shop case and certificate of authenticity

Naturally, a guitar as special as the Les Paul Standard Siberian Tiger will come with a plush-lined hardshell case as befits its lofty status as one of Gibson's most amazing achievements. This one comes with a really sweet Custom Shop case that will offer the ultimate protection for your investment for many decades to come. This 'Paul also comes with a certificate of authenticity, which proves your good taste, as well as a custom care kit and other assorted "case candy."
