Crank up a Les Paul Standard Plus Left Handed Electric Guitar and experience the power and performance that more than 40 years of craftsmanship and innovation can produce.
Pioneered and developed with the assistance of pioneering jazz-pop guitarist Les Paul”one of the world's greatest musical and technological pioneers”the Gibson Les Paul has become the standard by which all electric guitars are judged. With fat, rich tone and incredible sustain, the Les Paul lends itself to every style and generation of music. From the sweetest jazz to the heaviest rock and metal, the Les Paul can do it all”it is one of the most powerful and versatile instruments of all time.
The Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus continues to alter”and inspire”the sounds of today's ever-changing musical landscapes. It features a hand-carved figured maple top with matched chambered mahogany back outlined with single-ply binding. A major difference with the Les Paul Traditional is the Pro is made with chambered body. The chambered mahogany back serves to minimize weight, while also adding tonal nuances to the Gibson guitar's overall sound.
The neck is crafted from a single piece of mahogany. Carefully glued into the neck cavity of the body, the neck functions as a single unit with the body. Its asymmetrical shape is the most comfortable neck offered on a Gibson Les Paul Standard.
The BurstBucker Pro humbuckers have Alnico V magnets with slightly mismatched windings to deliver an enhanced "Patent Applied For" tone with more bite and brilliance.
All Les Paul Standard necks receive precision fret dressing and setup with the Plek system. As the guitar lies in a cradle, a computer-controlled robot arm moves along the neck measuring each fret's height, the fingerboard radius, even the bow in the neck. Using that data, the Plek machine adjusts the truss rod, cuts the nut slots for optimal spacing and height for each string, files each fret to a hundredth of a millimeter accuracy, and then polishes the frets. In a fraction of the time it takes a skilled technician, the Plek machine eliminates buzzing strings and dead spots, producing a neck with flawless intonation and superb action.
NOTE: To give you a choice of how your Gibson Les Standard Plus should look, the pickguard is not attached but included in the case. To install the pickguard, holes will need to be drilled into the body.
