Finally a Les Paul worth the dollar amount
The flame top on mine is tighter and denser than anything in it's range. The frets and fretboard are more playable than any other recent LP I've played and thats a lot. The 12th fret inlay is a nice addition. With all the trouble Gibson has had in the last 10 years, It seems they are trying hard to keep their customers and the switching options really show that. The coil splits sound great. A lot more like a true split then a lot of their other models. The phase option is a lot of fun and the bridge directly to the output is very useful. Directly out of the box, this Standard Plus is a joy to play and is totally inspirational. The enlarged strap buttons are a nice touch. This is truly an excellent offering from Gibson USA.
