    Premium woods and modern electronics adorn this Les Paul Standard from Gibson.

    All the sumptuous ingredients that makes the Les Paul name great are in the Gibson 2013 Les Paul Standard Premium Plus Electric Guitar in spades: a skillfully carved AAA maple top on a mahogany back perfectly joined to a mahogany neck, Burstbucker Pro pickups each fitted with coil-split capability, locking tuning machines, and neck and body binding, this is truly a full-featured, loaded Les Paul and now features a katalox fretboard. Katalox is a dense and hard Central American hardwood that has a great richness and depth with strong presence.

    Burstbucker Pro Humbuckers
    Gibson’s drive to recapture the magic of the original “Patent Applied For” humbucker pickups of the 1950s culminated with the introduction of the Burstbucker line in the early 1990s. In 2002, Gibson followed up this innovative accomplishment with yet another breakthrough in pickup design—the Burstbucker Pro, designed specifically for Les Paul Standards. The Burstbucker Pro features an Alnico V magnet (instead of the Alnico II), which offers slightly higher output and allows preamps to be driven a little harder to achieve a more natural break-up. Like all Burstbuckers, the Burstbucker Pro has asymmetrical coils—true to the original PAFs—which supply a more open sound. The Burstbucker Pro Neck is wound slightly less than the original PAFs, while the Burstbucker Pro Bridge is slightly overwound for increased output. The Burstbucker Pro pickups are also wax potted to allow loud volume pressures with minimal feedback.

    Coil Tapping
    The bridge and neck pickups can each be split via their own push/pull switch on the volume knob to achieve a single-coil tone. This coil-tapping function allows you to instantly achieve brighter, snappier tones from this humbucker-loaded guitar, to replicate the sounds of other classic guitars equipped with single-coil pickups, and to return to the Les Paul Standard Premium Plus's thick, warm, powerful, full-humbucking tone at the push of a knob.

    Neck Profile
    This Les Paul Standard Premium Plus is fitted with Gibson’s classic ’60s slim-taper neck profile, which is the more modern, slim-tapered neck most commonly associated with the Les Paul and SG models of the early 1960s.

    Locking Grover Tuners
    The Les Paul Standard Premium Plus is outfitted with locking tuners from Grover, which deliver ease of use through a standard tuner and positive locking mechanism that securely locks each string in place. Simply insert each string through the string hole, turn the dial on the bottom of the tuner to lock the string, and begin tuning. Each string can be tuned to pitch in less than one complete revolution of the post. These Grover machine heads feature completely sealed components with an improved 18:1 tuning ratio.

    Gibson Hardshell case included.

      Comments about Gibson 2013 Les Paul Standard Premium Plus Left-Handed Electric Guitar:

      This guitar's fit and finish is beautiful. I got a light burst and the maple top is perfect. The fretwork and inlays are smooth as butter to play on.

      Having only owned a telecaster before this, the transition was hard at first. It took me awhile to get a good feel for the electronics and tone of the Burstbuckers.

      This IS a 2012 model, but the specs are the same on the '13, so the deal I got was insane.
