Special Order

A True "Player's" Les Paul!

This Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar takes the Les Paul to a new level of playability. When this Les Paul Axcess Standard's maple top and mahogany body combine with its dual humbucking pickups, a thick wall of aggressive, rich tone will pour out of your amp, mesmerizing everyone within earshot. While sporting the elegant styling of late '50s-era Les Pauls, this Les Paul Axcess Standard also provides you with a Floyd Rose tremolo, as well as a modern heel-less neck joint and a thinner, weight-relieved body. So, take a peek at this Les Paul Axcess Standard. The guitarists at Sweetwater are confident that no player can deny the appeal of this Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar.

Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Weight-relieved, contoured body provides modern comfort
  • Special neck joint for a heel-less feel
  • Dual humbucking pickups give you aggressively-hot high output
  • Floyd Rose tailpiece for bending, twisting, and dive-bombing
Weight-relieved, contoured body provides modern comfort

This Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar was designed to be played, and played, and played. The Gibson Custom Shop joined its smoothly carved neck joint with a belly scarf, or a ribcage contour. This way, your guitar hugs much closer to your body without that familiar, uncomfortable digging sensation. What's more, the Gibson Custom Shop gave this Les Paul Axcess Standard a slightly thinner body, comprising weight-relieved mahogany with a carved maple top, so the instrument feels refreshingly light whether you're standing, sitting, or just plain rocking out.

Special neck joint for a heel-less feel

The Axcess in the Les Paul Axcess Standard comes from its slight structural alteration - you get even easier access to those upper frets, thanks to the way the neck heel and portions of the back and neck joint have been contoured. As you run your hand up the neck, you'll get that heel-less feel right up to the 22nd fret. Playing lead? It's no problem with the Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar.

Dual humbucking pickups give you aggressively-hot high output

It just wouldn't be a Les Paul without humbuckers, and this Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar features Gibson Custom Shop-style premium tone, thanks to its exposed-coil 496R and 498T pickups. While perfectly capable of warm vocal tones, these hot humbuckers really shine when pumping out fat growls and metallic screams. Plus, a push-pull switch on the treble tone knob lets you coil split for even more tonal diversity.

Floyd Rose tailpiece for bending, twisting, and dive-bombing

The most noticeable addition to this Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard solidbody electric guitar is its Floyd Rose tailpiece. In the past, adding a Floyd Rose to a Les Paul could seriously compromise the guitar's stability if not perfectly installed. That's why the Gibson Custom Shop installed the Floyd Rose personally and added an R4 locking nut. Not only can you add those crazy dive-bombs and subtle vibrato tones to your playing, but you can also do so confidently - the R4 promises exceptional tuning stability, so your sound goes right back to pitch.

Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Weight-relieved, contoured body provides modern comfort
  • Special neck joint for a heel-less feel
  • Dual humbucking pickups give you aggressively-hot high output
  • Floyd Rose tailpiece for bending, twisting, and dive-bombing
  • Kluson tuners provide excellent intonation
This Gibson Custom Les Paul Axcess Standard electric guitar delivers serious tone and modern playability!

Gibson Axcess w/ Floyd rose 1000

Sweet guitar, sweet sounding rocker. I love everything about it. I would have rated 5 stars if I had received the tremolo arm in the shipment. Then they sent me the wrong replacement made in Taiwan trem arm. But they quickly resolved the problem and ordered me one from Gibson. Other than that no problems. This baby growls and sings.
