    OVERVIEW

    The new flagship of High Performance.

    The Les Paul Standard 2017 HP is the most luxurious and groundbreaking Les Paul Standard ever made. A super exclusive AAAA flamed maple top, premium chrome hardware, beautiful nitro finish, and genuine mother-of-pearl inlays deliver the luxury.

    Extreme performance comes from the prominent use of aluminum, steel, and titanium hardware; an innovative Fast-Access heel and Soloist's neck width and asymmetrical slim-taper profile; and a revolutionary new wiring system that allows over 150 fully reversible sonic options from the PAF-inspired Burstbucker Rhythm Pro and Lead Pro pickups.

    It comes delivered in a Gibson High Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.

    • BurstBucker Rhythm Pro Neck Pup
    • G Force tuner an eclectic guitarist's godsend
    • Special wiring with DIP means no more modding

    Cons

    • No tremolo version

      Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard HP Electric Guitar:

      This is the guitar I've been waiting for from Gibson for decades with the DIP switch select wiring. It's a dream com true - providing the full array of options from split and tap options for the neck and bridge, as well as a treble bleed and transient suppression. Finally, the electronic circuit configuration comes with the newly tweaked BurstBucker Rhythm Pro in the neck and BurstBucker Lead Pro Plus in the bridge. I see this as an improvement over the 2010 custom shop model with the BurstBuckers 2 and 3, because as much as I love the growl of the early BurstBuckers in the bridge position, the EQ high-end reactance isn't always the best match for the neck position. These pups are more "fitted" for the bridge and neck. The quad AAAA choice flamed maple top is eye-popping. The G-Force is a love or hate thing for some players, but for some eclectic gigging musicians in cover bands called upon to switch between multiple genres, the preset tuner option alleviates the toting 4 guitars to a gigs. Still, it's an easy mod to swap out if you like everything else but the tuner... hardly a deal breaker. This is an exceptional move in the right direction for the LP Standard Series.

      2017 Auto Tune on the Les Paul Standard HP

      By Bob

      from Nashville, TN

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • The auto tune is highly accurate, fast and easy.

      Cons

      • High Performance label badge difficult to read.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Gibson 2017 Les Paul Standard HP Electric Guitar:

        I've read people's complaints about the auto tune. Some of them I suspect are just repeating what they may have heard. My 2017 HP has auto tune and I think it's wonderful. It's fast and accurate and I actually put my guitar out of tune just to watch the knobs turn by themselves and put my guitar back in perfect tune. The HP neck is a soloist's dream and second to none.
