Gibson Les Paul Standard Traditional in Desert Burst

The Les Paul Standard Traditional Electric Guitar got its name because Gibson gave it all the traditional features you expect from a Les Paul: mahogany body and set neck with rounded '50s profile maple top and a pair of Gibson's '57 Classic humbucker pickups.

One significant yet not-so-traditional improvement-the neck has been Plek'd on Gibson's Plek machine.

The neck and frets are analyzed by a computer-controlled robot and then the frets are filed to an accuracy of a hundredth of a millimeter for optimal action and intonation without string buzzing.

What Gibson say about the Les Paul Standard Traditional

You asked for it-you got it. Introducing the Les Paul Standard Traditional from Gibson USA. With all the fat, sweet, snarling Les Paul tone that purists love, the Traditional plays, sounds, and weighs like the Les Pauls today's players grew up loving and lusting after.

Taking design and visual cues from the Les Pauls of the '80s and '90s, the Les Paul Standard Traditional starts with an un-chambered mahogany body with traditional weight-relief holes for a beefy tone that maintains the resonance of modern Les Pauls.

The body is capped with a carved, maple top-plain maple on Ebony and Goldtops and beautiful AA-maple on other finishes-and the hand fitted neck tenon sports the rounded, C-shape profile common on the Les Pauls of the '80s and '90s.

Gibson is also proud to announce that the Traditional is Gibson USA's first model to utilize the revolutionary Plek system-a computer-controlled set-up that carefully measures and dresses each fret, accurately measuring the height between the fingerboard and each string, virtually eliminating string buzz and providing unbeatable playability.

Two of Gibson's best-loved humbuckers-a '57 Classic in the neck position, and a '57 Classic Plus in the bridge-give the new Traditional the power, punch, and clarity of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups.

Other traditional appointments include vintage-style Gibson speed knobs, classic Kluson-style tuners by TonePros, which offer period-correct looks with a higher tuning ratio, and a chrome Nashville Tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar. Each Les Paul Standard Traditional also comes with Gibson USA's standard black snakeskin case.
