A True "Player's" Les Paul!

The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard takes the famous Les Paul to a new level of playability, and it's brought to you straight from the Gibson Custom Shop. The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard still sports all the same elegant styling and attitude of the late 50s-era Les Pauls, but you'll enjoy a lighter and thinner contoured body. A special neck joint gives you that "heel-less" feel, while the weight-relieved, thinner body has a contoured, "body-hugging" carve, so you can get up-close and comfortable with your Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard.

Gibson Custom Shop playability modifications

The Gibson Les Paul is unarguably a rock classic - especially the beloved axes that came from the 1958-1960 golden era. This Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard boasts all the same classic body lines, styling, and attitude as those famous axes. Yet, the Gibson Custom Shop gave the Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard its own modifications, all in the name of giving it the maximum in both playability and versatility.

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 Les Paul Axcess Standard.

Weight-relieved, thinner, contoured body

This Les Paul Axcess Standard 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, the guitar hugs much closer to your own body without digging in uncomfortably. What's more, they gave it 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 playing all night long.

Exposed-coil 496R and 498T pickups

It just wouldn't be a Les Paul without those humbuckers, and the Les Paul Axcess Standard features Gibson Custom Shop-style premium tone, thanks to its 496R and 498T humbucking pickups. These pickups pump out everything from fat growl to warmer vocal tones. Plus, a push/pull switch on the treble Tone knob lets you coil split for even more tonal diversity.

Plek Pro Setup

The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard receives state-of-the-art treatment using Gibson's new Plek machines. The system mechanically dresses each guitar under true playing conditions, identifying what the instrument needs to achieve flawless fretwork. You can be sure this axe is buzz-free and has spot-on intonation, so it's a dream to play from the moment it touches your hands.
