OVERVIEW

Burnin' Burstbucker Pro pickups with a sleek neck and classic head.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s Neck is an electric guitar that is famous for its sustain. The feel and sound of the original '60s Les Paul comes from a slim '60s neck design with a smaller peghead, push-in-bushing green tuning keys, and nickel hardware. BurstBucker Pro pickups feature Alnico V magnets like those used in the P-90s from the '50s. One coil has more wraps than the other, as did most '50s and early '60s "Patent Applied For"s. These waxed, double-potted pickups deliver a tighter, balanced, biting tone with more midrange. Mahogany body and neck with maple top and rosewood fretboard. Includes Gibson hardshell case.

FEATURES
Mahogany body and slim '60s neck
Maple top
Rosewood fretboard
BurstBucker Pro with Alnico V humbucker pickups

The only way to rate this product is by actually owning it and having played many other les paul's and copys. Mine is a Standard model Ebony Chrome Hardware. It's a beautiful instrument. What's unique about mine is the ebony fretboard instead of the rosewood and is equiped with a bigsby. The grain of the ebony is tighter and not as dry and soft as the rosewood. The bigsby makes it a tad heavier but not so that the neck tends to move up. My only concern is that I'm a bender and as all benders know, fret jobs are done often!!! As long as you can afford it I guess..( my strat is down to the fretboard...)I wouldn't want a fretjob done on this guitar by just anybody simply cause of the nubs at the end of the binding ( I've seen used ones that where refretted and it was horrible to see how they had shaved them down!!!) so the price tag on these beauties....you get what you pay for! I just wish that it didn't cost as much..As for sound best way to describe it....get out there and put them to the test!!! No two are alike! choose wisely I don't recomend ordering online without trying it first keeping in mind ( the satisfaction guaranteed thing where you can send it back for another one) so if you don't feel too good about it....return it for another one till you find the one for you..Peace out and keep on rockin!

My Dream Realized

By 360 Annie

from Tucson, AZ

I just bought this awesome guitar for my birthday. I've always been a Gibson girl, having at one time or another owned an SG, Les Paul Double Cutaway and a Les Paul Studio. But this black beauty is the dreamiest!Every single aspect is perfect. The seams, glue, frets...I can't find anything wrong. And of course it sounds fantastic! I play through a Marshall and the Les Paul's bite is something you can feel. I love playing clean through the neck pick-up then hit the bridge pick-up for screaming leads....And the neck is so thin I can really play fast!I will play this guitar for the rest of my life!

This was my first les Paul. I?ve really enjoyed Gibson products overall through out all my Gibson experience. The only problem is the frets weren?t 100%. This Gibson really gives me the depth and punch I need for the type of music I play

Gibson les paul standard ebony

By Iron_Logan

from San Diego Ca.

See all my reviews

I've been playing for quite a while, and I only use gibson, but this guitar was the dream I was looking for. I recently bought it, and beging to playing it at home through a marshall avt50 and with a digitech distortion factory, the sound is amazing, depending on how much gain you applied on both amp or pedal will sound total 80's british heavy metal or 70's prog rock and some trash sounds too, the clean sound is perfect to play bosa nova and some old jazz. The only three things I found that are problem is with the pick ups, when i do the palm mute it doesn't have enough pouch like the seymour duncans wich i have with my other axes, the second is the gibson tunners they don't last forever so is better to put them some grovers or sperzel machine heads and the third is a problem that every gibson guitar got, is that the bridge isn't well configurated and the neck has to be adjust, 'cause the strings are to much sepparated from the bridge, so the best to take out all the power this guitar got is to get it to a luthier or a guitar tech, and believe this will rock you through your bones.

Great guitar and tone but has a few flaws

By Ezekeneil777

from Minot, N.D.

I love this guitar. It plays well and sounds great. I could set the action a little bit lower but it has a loose fret that wiggles at the 19th and one around the 21st. I would need to get a neck shave to make it perfect but I hear that's the way they make them these days from Gibson when it comes to guitars that are anything less than historic models. I'm not sure about the customs. I do love the tone and the feel despite the minor flaw in the fretboard and would recommend this guitar to anyone who loves gibson lp's! I own a couple Ibanez RG's, one being a neck through that I really like, a Jackson Randy Rhoades V, and an Ovation acoustic and none of them compare to it. The tones that you can get and the feel of the neck to me when compared to the other guitars I own is second to none. I love that guitar and if it were ever stolen I would buy another one. But probably a custom because of the little bit better quality. Overall, it's a sweet playing, feeling, guitar. Better have a strong back, she's heavy!!!! If you buy, you'll enjoy.

Worthy of the Legendary Gibson Name

By MatteoTheGreat

from Boulder, CO

The Gibson Les Paul is the guitar that defined rock 'n roll. Along with Marshall stacks, the guitar was found in the hands of hundreds of the world's best. This guitar certainly lives up to its hype.It's a little expensive, and definitely heavy, but plays like a dream. The pickups are excellent, action is easily adjustable, and it stays in tune well. Controls are nice [especially the Les Paul trick]. It is probably one of the best guitars I've ever played.

Not A Bad Piece of Wood

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I have been playing strats for many years through an AC30, but this guitar makes that thing growl. The tuners are garbage, but man it gets the job done. I was fortunate enough to find one with a freat flamed top. It will definately become my primary guitar.

Timeless

By Thomas MD

from Bedford, PA

See all my reviews

I did an extremely dumb thing. I bought this guitar online, never actually having played a Gibson guitar, let alone a Les Paul. When I first got it I hated it. It had been a floor model, you could tell. The strings were old, it had finger prints on it, and it was dusty. I restrung it it, cleaned it up, and finally got use to the weight. I love this guitar and wouldn't trade it for a million strats. So much sustain, and so much versatility. The neck is a little thicker than I'm use to, but the speed is just great. The Gibson fit and finish surpasses all other brands. The pickups are great, and the controls are great. Adjusting the action and everything is really easy as well. Some people have trouble with the tuners, but mine are really very decent. This thing can crank out any and all types of music. I'd put it up against any other brand of guitar's top of the line model any day, and this baby's only the standard. She's a bit pricey, but I've never regretted the purchase since.

Lame-Sauce

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I don't like this guitar simply because I can never be comfertable playing it unless i'm standing up all the time. Very heavy. I'll admit that it does sound excellant. Especially if you're wanting something for chunky-heavy music. But the clean tones on this guitar are very boring and way too deep. I like jangley sounding guitars now and i'm not really getting what I want out of this for the music I do anymore.

Smooth like butter

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This guitar is sooooo smooth. I bought it about two years ago and i love it. It fingers so easily and sounds like a champ no matter what style of music you play. I run this guitar through a gibson super gold tone amp and the sound is incredible. I would recomend this guitar to any one who is serious about their sound.

Was not disapointed

By LPman-DgjCZ

from Tehachapi, CA

Having had and sold a '78 Les Paul Custom and a '60 Gibson archtop, I was in need of a replacement. My new LP does the trick. It sounds great and feels fabulous. The range of sound is just what I expected and the sustain goes on for ever. I am playing thru a Park amp right now even with that little amp I am very happy with the guitar.

One amazing guitar

By yngwie21

from Los Angeles, CA

See all my reviews

I picked this guitar up a few months ago, and it has yet to disappoint. The sound this guitar puts out is simply amazing, you can do just about anything with it. It looks beautiful, especially with the pick guard attached. I play many different genres of music, from ska to heavy metal, and this guitar gives me everything I need to rock any venue or recording. It has great playability, playing a face-melting guitar solo on this thing is ridiculously easy, and when you are playing rhythm, it has a dynamic, powerful presence that wont disappoint. I recommend getting this guitar if you have the money. It isn't high-priced for no reason, this is a premium Gibson Les Paul, definitely not going to give you many problems.

BUY THIS GUITAR NOW!

By Dillon Shambley

from North Carolina

This guitar is REALLY great sounding and really great to play. Definitely the best guitar I have ever played. Not only does it sound and play great but it looks great. Definitely worth paying for. The only thing that isn't that great is the weight factor. It is a very heavy guitar, so you better be ready to hold it up! This guitar is definitely worth the money you'll pay. GO BUY ONE NOW!

One sexy guitar.

By Hippierock420

from Ont, Canada

See all my reviews

This guitar never stops being able to play any type of music you want. Jazz, Blues, Rock, and pretty much any other style you can think of. I love my guitar almost more than my family(almost). It's sexy and plays really slick. The only two bad things i've found:1. Price: although it was worth it, I think anyone that isn't gigging really can't afford it. I think if you love guitar you should be able buy a les paul without giving up your firstborn. 2. Weight: although it is a mandatory feature of the les paul, it sometimes gets tiresome, just try a four hour gig with it, and you'll be be begging for a hollowbody. But all in all an excellent buy.
