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
  • Green keystone tuners
  • Top and fretboard binding

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!

One amazing guitar

By yngwie21

from Los Angeles, CA

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.

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!

Rocken Shocken

By White Summer

from Tooele, UT

I love this guitar, as with any rad product there are nay sayers. Sure its a little heavy, its a full on soloing machine! the pickups in it are great, its by far the best guitar for any type of playing. I got this guitar as a birthday present for myself. I have owned Fenders and Bc Rich and so on...blah blah... this beats them tenfold

good stuff...

By piccolo pounder

from Wilmington, NC

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

AMAZING GUITAR

By zerosktr102

from Tennessee

I've played one of these at my local guitar store. They have amazing sustain. Very versatile for anybody who says epiphones are better than this they're retarded. You aren't paying for JUST a name you're paying for unbelievable tone and sustain. Through a Marshall stack they sound even more amazing.

Amazing guitar

By zerosktr102

from Tennessee

The 60s neck is super slim and fast. The ebony finish and the binding add to make this guitar not only amazing to play but also amazing to look at. I've played these guitars at various places. They're heavy but they make up for the weight by the amazing gibson tone you get. Don't think for a second that an epiphone can match up to this. People who tell you that are either lying or are crazy. Gibson isn't just a name it's all that and a box of chocolates. The saying you get what you pay for is definitely true in this scenario. There are better guitars than this and if that's what you're looking for then get a Les Paul Supreme or Custom. Truth of the matter is if you want a well rounded guitar that's great for any style of music then this is the guitar for you. I'm currently saving up for one myself. I'm going to buy it directly from the Gibson Factory though.

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.

Gibson les paul standard ebony

By Iron_Logan

from San Diego Ca.

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.
