The Les Paul Standard
It started it all off. Every electric guitar owes something to the Les Paul Standard. It was one of the first ever electric guitar designs, and its quality still holds up today. Favoured for its beautifully vintage tone and incredible dynamism, it is a model which screams with style, quality, and class. The '50s models by Gibson are an ode to the original design of the Les Paul Standard, and offer the same level of sensational craftsmanship boasted by models of old.

Bursting with sonic flavour
So you want tone? With the Burstbucker pickups in this Les Paul Standard '50s, you can have all the tone in the world. Made from Alnico II magnets, they offer high output and a sound which is like stepping into a time machine to the vintage PAF tones of old. The bridge position pickup will give your rhythm licks the bold boost and vintage twang that they need to sound rich, full, and vibrant. It will take you away to a universe of bright sounds, with its high output giving you plenty of crunch and clarity.

The Burstbucker 1 in the neck is a medium-output humbucker which gives your notes that rich creaminess which fills the room. Lead notes will have a full, flawless bottom end, whilst being able to scream and wail as much as you like. Whether playing with gain or clean as a whistle, every lick will be defined and saturated. With this pickup combination providing a solid foundation for your sound, your tone will be electrifying.

The Les Paul neck
What's next? A neck which will make your jaw drop? You’re absolutely right. The rounded mahogany neck on the Les Paul Standard '50s is a truly outstanding innovation which is as satisfying as it is playable. Whether you hook your thumb over the top or keep it at the back, you'll feel comfortable playing in your own style. Its warm resonance further boosts each note you play, and lets your guitar's voice truly shine. It's also silky smooth for slick manoeuvrability up and down the fretboard. You're bound to discover a world of musical possibilities with this beautiful instrument in your hands.

Full-on fretting
Unrivalled rosewood. If you want the smoothest fretting experience possible, this will give you ultimate satisfaction. The rosewood fretboard on the Standard '50s is one of a kind, having been expertly crafted for a playing experience like no other. Your fingers will fall in love with each fret as they glide along them effortlessly. The warm resonance of the rosewood also rings out with conviction. Offering an exceptional level of sustain, this fretboard will help each note make an impression, and you'll find it easy to express your musical ideas.

For the modern player
It's a classic. But it's made for serious modern musicians. This guitar not only offers the same incredible features of the 1950s Les Paul Standards, but also gives you some modern quirks which maximise its performance. An ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge lends its world class tuning stability, whilst the aluminium stop bar gives your picking hand the optimum place to rest. The grand, majestic finish matches the majestic legacy of this vintage-style innovation. Experience a guitar that's everything an excellent instrument should be.
