OVERVIEW

The natural beauty of noble tonewoods

A natural, almost raw beauty, enhanced by an exquisite gloss lacquer finish. This Limited Edition model is only being produced in 150 pieces! The 2016 Les Paul Standard with figured walnut top has all the ingredients that have made the Les Paul such a desirable guitar, and one of the most legendary. Body binding adds a familiar touch of elegance, while the mahogany back uses modern weight relief to add resonance and playing comfort. The mahogany neck is also bound and features a ironwood fingerboard for more feel and tone with a 12" radius that offers a familiar playing experience. Gibson uses a self-lubricating Graph Tech nut that helps strings return to pitch from heavy string bending while adding sustain.

Comments about Gibson Limited Edition 2016 Les Paul Standard Figured Walnut Electric Guitar:

The pictures do not do this guitar justice, it is stunning! The only issue that I have is the 1st one I received had filler material exposed on the inside of the horn between the body and the binding. and the binding had a slight waver to it. Returned for another, and it too had filler material showing in the same spot but the binding was straight although it is not as smooth as it should be. The filler material showing must be designed that way, and I guess the binding issues are what you get when it is installed by hand. It is hard to explain that a much less expensive Indonesian made G&L Ascari Tribute HB3 can get it flawless yet the USA Gibson has issues.
But....... the tone.... plugged into my Ampeg GVT-52 it is huge, The '57 and '57plus pickups are well matched to this guitar, sound great from clean to crunch.
The 50's neck is substantial especially near the neck joint .If you have smaller hands it'll be difficult to access much past the 14th fret EAD without strain. But for everything else, it's perfect. The ironwood fretboard compliments the walnut nicely.
