Rock Solid

By Xtreme Blues

from Morris County, New Jersey

The Gibson Les Paul Standard is the defacto instrument for serious players and enthusiasts alike. My Standard sustains forever and sings like and angel thru my VS100 head. The Les Paul Standard is a solid, honest instrument that only gets better as it ages. It doesn't need babying though you certainly will want to.Expensive? Yup. Go get one anyway, you won't be disappointed.


Dream Guitar

I got this on the last day of August 2008. I have been using it for recording, gigging, everything. In my opinion Gibson makes some of the greatest guitars. Period. The finish is beautiful and the sound is the same as the tone that defined rock for over 50 years. This guitar never goes out of tune, and I have absolutely no regrets about buying this.


Best guitar ever!

My Little Princess (with an attitude)

Well just like all other Gibson Les Paul Standard owners, I am truly in love with my LP. Sure you may think it's only a guitar, but after owning it and playing it, it truly become a part of you. My little princess is a 2003 Std in Heritage Cherry Sunburst. I know the serial number of the guitar better then my own social security number. I May end up getting a tattoo of it down the road. All I can say is I've played many many guitars in the 20 years I've been playing and no other guitar could possibly replace my princess. She sings like and angel, then with a little distortion, screans like a demon from hell. Like a siren in the wind, beware of the trance, once you hold her in your arms, you'll never want to let her go!!

My dream has come true

from thousand oaks, CA

Ok first of all I'm 15 years old and I own a epiphone lp junior and a washburn. I've been playing guitar for 5 years and I was getting pretty sick of my other axes. I had to work alot, bargan and take a lot of hell but in the end I am a proud owner of a les paul standard. I am the happiest boy alive and now im gunna do some justice with this baby! Gibson makes the best guitars in the world. I'll stick with them forever!


Fender fan converted to Gibson...

This guitar is absolutely gorgeous. The ebony finish is striking against the creme binding/pickguard and chrome hardware. The 50s neck is the best of the new Gibson products in my opinion. Sure this guitar costs a lot, but once you plug it in and crank out some riffs it feels so worth it. I really enjoy playing this guitar. I may not sound better as a guitarist, but for some reason I feel like a better guitarist with this baby. Oh, yes, I have slept with it right next to me. I love this guitar!


Awesome Gibson

By Chris-XWoQb

I didnt buy mine through Musicians Friend but I own the same model. Ive played an SG for years and always wanted an Les Paul Standard. The difference between the 2 is remarkable. I play this through a 2003 Mesa Boogie Dual Recto and it almost plays itself. Lovely High Quality insturment. You will not be let down.

"Amazing" is the only word I need after playing my LP Standard for the last 27 years. Sounds better every passing year and will be better long after Im gone! Each one is a true "collector's item" that needs no babying and has no rival.


There is no other

I was a Strat guy most of my life. 15 + yrs of club gigging. As I matured as a player, I realized that every time I picked up a LP, it did and "said" everything I asked it to. The range of tone and the playability of the 50's neck is second to none. The instrument does not make the player, but owning this Lady don't hurt. If you are worthy of her, she's worth every penny.


Wish I had one

This thing is sweet. I don't own it but one of my band mates has 2 and I used his other one at band practice yesterday. The pick ups are the best. I didn't even get a buzz though the amp when I turned it up real loud. I'm saveing up every penney I make to buy one. It's a little on the heavey side. A little heavier than a Strat.I feel deprived to have to go back to my Fender Strat. The neck is great very easy to do solo's on. Go up to the top of the page and click on "add to cart".


Nice LP

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

These new Gibson Les Paul Standards are very nice guitars. One thing I don't understand though is why they put such terrible tuners on them. Most people would rather have some quality, functioning tuners than these garbage stock ones. The guitar will constantly go flat on you so be sure to grab a set of locking Sperzels or other similar tuners. Other than that its an amazing guitar. These new burstbuckers that they have been putting in the new standards sound way better than the 490R and 498T thats are in my mid 90s standard. I love the 50s neck but thats obviously personal preferance. If you want a new Les Paul you wont be dissapointed.

Gibson knows how to build guitars. The neck on the 50's is pretty thick so if you are not used to a fat neck she will give you some trouble. Fit and finish are awesome. Sound is unmatched. All th prs players out there, you still arent even close.

This guitar is amazing. I believe that it is the best Les Paul you can get without paying hundreds of dollars extra for accessories that dress it up such as gold hardware. Besides, gold is too soft and will make an LP with gold sound worse.


excellent if youve got the cash

By mike-uEG0V

from morgan hill, CA

i absolutely love this guitar. i tried many before it, an SG standard which was flimsy and lacked solid feel and weight, an explorer, which also lacked weight and the strings felt more like a fender than a gibson; lightweight and cheaper(by no means am i calling fender cheap, but it is when compared to gibson.) the LP felt fabulous when its on. it weight a ton, which makes it feel extremely solid when your playing because it simply wont budge. i especially like the 50s neck feature, because my hands are big, and it feels much more comfortable. the one physical fault of the LP, i think, is that its not double cut, so it can be hard to get to the high frets in a hurry. the rosewood fretboard is truly perfect; lots of guys like maple because they laquer the hell out of it so its smooth, but the rosewood wares nicely and feels so natural and perfect under your fingers, you wont feel the same playing another guitar. the other problem with the LP, like all gibsons, is expence. lets face that 22 hundred is a lot to pay for a guitar, but i say if youve got the means, definately go for it. over time and playing, the guitar will be worth much much more to you.


Save up or steal one!

The fat neck on this Gibson LP Standard may take some getting used to, but for me, it is crazy how easily it plays. The burstbuckers sound great on any setting, but are huge with heavy distortion. It's a little heavy, so get used to it. The only trouble I have with mine is trying to keep the hardware looking new - it oxidizes quick, but who cares really - it looks loved! Also, be careful trying to put a combo on the case lock - mine locked, but wouldn't open, so I had to break into it... I tried to keep mine nice and play it on rare ocassions, but it called to me. go get one and stop being so cheap!


Choice between 50's an 60's neck!

By GibsonGuru247

from Jeff City, TN

What delayed my decision for so long -- was honestly I didn't know whether I wanted a 50's or 60's neck. After research and sitting down and actually playing them both, I was taken right away. The 50's neck is perfect for people like me with big hands and/or long fingers. It fits like a puzzle piece, it had no effect on my speed, other than it fit so comfortable, I am able to shred much more easily, with significantly less discomfort.The 60's neck, is more U shaped while the 50's is more C shaped. This means that, if you want a more strat/ibanez neck feel, or have smaller hands or shorter fingers, this may be for you, but I urge you to try the 50's neck before you bunk it, I am extremely satisfied with this guitar, and will never replace it, and will always stick with this neck style. Features received a 4.5 because tuning pegs slip, replace them with grover or locking Sperzel.
