OVERVIEW

A Gibson Les Paul for the new millennia upgraded with hotter pickups for even more tonal combinations.

The Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard electric guitar carries all the elegant styling, fluid body lines, and rocking attitude of a classic Les Paul Standard guitar from the golden era of 1958 to '60. The Gibson Les Paul Axcess reveals a handful of upgrades upon closer examination-all modifications made in the name of maximum playability and versatility. The most noticeable addition is the Floyd Rose tailpiece, a unit optimized for anything from subtle vibrato wobbles to dramatic, rumbling divebombs. Partnered with an R4 locking nut, it also guarantees outstanding tuning stability and return-to-pitch accuracy.

While the Gibson Les Paul Axcess guitar sports what looks from the front to be a traditional Les Paul neck joint, the neck heel and portions of the back and neck joint at the upper cutaway have been contoured to provide a "heelless" feel and an unimpeded reach right up to the 22nd fret. No more stretching against the traditional neck heel to achieve the upper-fret access that your lead style demands-the Gibson Axcess guitar gives you that sought-after Les Paul playability all the way up the neck, and welcomes you to take it right over the top.

To further enhance playing comfort, the Gibson Les Paul's smoothly carved neck joint is joined by a "belly scarf" (a.k.a. ribcage contour) that allows the body of the Les Paul guitar to hug closely to your own body in the playing position without digging in. Add to these contours the Les Paul Axcess guitar's slightly thinner body, made from weight-relieved mahogany (with carved maple top), and you've also got a Les Paul guitar that is refreshingly light, and a pure joy to play either strapped on or seated.

The Gibson Les Paul Axcess now comes juiced with two super hot Gibson pickups, the 498T and the 496R. These forces to reckoned with pickups yield numerous tonal opportunities and can help drive your favorite amp to ultra crunch and scorching - leads in addition to providing ballsy blues tones, warm, fluid vocal tones, snappy country, and fat - sweet growls. Instead of just being able to split both pickups at the same time with one push/pull (like the original LP Axcess configuration), you can now "split" each guitar pickup separately by pulling up either the rhythm or treble tone knob which allows you to blend "single coil" tones with full humbucking tones. This gives 2 more pickup settings than the original Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard configuration thereby providing a wider array of tones. Simply pull up the treble and/or rhythm tone control knobs to "axcess" single coil tones and experiment with combining full humbucking with single coil tones, etc;hellip:

Being a product of the Gibson Custom Shop, the Les Paul Axcess is an electric guitar built to the highest standards attainable, which include a final set-up and fret dressing by the computer-controlled PLEK System. All Les Paul Standard necks receive precision fret dressing and setup with the Plek system. As the Gibson 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.

Each Gibson Les Paul Axcess Standard guitar also comes with a custom shop hardshell case, and a custom shop certificate of authenticity.
