New Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s and 60s - The Best Gibson Range Yet...

Key features

  • ABR-1 Bridge normally found on Custom Shop models
  • Grover button machineheads
  • Thinner 60s style neck carve
  • Burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups which are slightly hotter, Alnico V pickups.
  • No weight relief
  • Audio Taper pots for a smooth volume transition 
  • Electronics are no longer PCB mounted 

Body & Neck

The guitar is made with the winning formula that the Les Paul is known for. The single Mahogany back with AA Figured Maple top is the classic combo, for a reserved but undeniably beautiful aesthetic.

The Slim Taper Mahogany neck is asymmetrical to fit the hand more comfortably – and it wouldn’t be a ‘60s Les Paul without a Rosewood fretboard, perfect for warming up your tone.

Hardware & Electronics

The pickups are BurstBucker 61s, powerful Alnico V humbuckers voiced to resemble the definitive ‘60s Les Paul sound. To ensure that they sound authentic, the electronics are handwired with Orange Drop Capacitors, renowned for providing that timeless sizzle. Think barking midrange, weighty Mahogany resonance and a top-end that adds a rustic sheen to any style.  

The hardware has been carefully selected to complete the classic Les Paul picture. Grover Rotomatics with Kidney buttons & Gold Top Hat knobs are among the notable features, with Nickel plating perfectly contrasting the warm, wooden finish.
