The Les Paul Standard Premium Plus is the pinnacle of Les Paul beauty and performance! Order yours from Sam Ash direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.
Gibson’s legendary Les Pauls of the late 1950s were known for their beautifully figured flame maple tops. Today's Les Paul Standard Premium Plus takes the concept to another level. It starts with a stunning AAA grade, highly figured, flame maple top that is mounted on a mahogany body. In an effort to reduce the potential excessive weight; portions of the mahogany body have been strategically scooped out to maximize comfort; as well as enhancing acoustic qualities and improving resonance. The addition of a maple top gives players the familiar tonewood combination that produces that classic Les Paul sound.
A quarter-sawn mahogany neck with a traditional 60s style slim tapered profile will feel great in your hands. The rosewood fingerboard features 22 medium jumbo frets, those familiar trapezoid inlays, and a new twist for 2012 to enhance playability: These Les Pauls now feature a compound radius, allowing for comfort, speed and precision at all points up and down the neck. Players who prefer to set their action low will love the ease of playability and luxurious string bending.
The rest of this spectacular instrument is outfitted with nickel hardware, and two of Gibson's most popular pickups; Burstbucker Pros with Alnico V magnets and wax potting. Together, these pickups deliver Gibson's vintage Patent Applied For punch. They are both carefully hand-wound at Gibson USA in Nashville, Tennessee. The addition of a push/pull coil-tap system on each tone control will expand your tonal range and maximize versatility. This latter day classic boasts a Tune-o-matic bridge, stopbar tailpiece for maximum sustain and vintage-style machine heads provide tuning stability. The Les Paul Standard Premium Plus comes with a special Gibson USA hardshell case.
Prepare to be blown away by this modern day classic. The Les Paul Standard Premium Plus will give you everything you’re looking for: tone, playability, stunning looks, and comfort. Get yours from Sam Ash Direct today with the security of our 45/60 day return/price protection policy.

I just got the desert burst model in yesterday, so I've only played it for about 2 hours, but thus far I'm highly impressed. The fit and finish is amazing; it is truly a work of art. The tone is warm and clear (I'm using a Fender '57 Champ reissue) when playing through the humbuckers. It has a nice bite when the pickups are split into single coil mode, but it doesn't sound too tinny. I've not really done much yet with the phase reversal, but the tonal possibilities are immense.
The neck is fast and clean. I've never played a neck with the "compound radius", but it suits me.
The locking Grover tuners seem to be high-precision, and substantive.
If you can bite the bullet and pay the price, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
