You are looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP Electric Guitar Ebony, serial number 160124995. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (9 lbs, 6.3 oz.)

The Gibson USA High Performance line of instruments are for those discerning modern guitarists who demand only the best in playability, performance, and style. Each instrument in this premium line from Gibson USA is offered with an unbelievable array of top-notch, high-performance features and upgrades that will cater to even the pickiest players. The Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP benefits from all of these groundbreaking HP features.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP starts out with an upgraded AAAA-grade figure maple top (C grade on Ebony, Gold Top, and Blue Mist) that really enhances the visual splendor of this Les Paul. The modern weight-relieved mahogany back contributes to that classic Les Paul tone while also lightening up your load and enhancing resonance & sustain. Further accentuating the beauty of the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP, the guitar is available in an extensive palette of gorgeous nitro lacquer finishes including Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Fire Burst, Honey Burst, Trans Amber, Desert Burst, Trans Black, Tea Burst, Light Burst, Blue Mist, Gold Top, and Ebony.

Bringing the Les Paul to entirely new levels of playability and comfort, the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP features a fast, comfortable asymmetrical Slim Taper mahogany neck that features a slightly wider Soloist width than the Les Paul Standard 2016 T along with an ergonomic fast-access heel that allows for unprecedented access all the way to the very last fret. The compound-radius dark rosewood fingerboard facilitates effortless playability whether you're playing chords down by the nut or soloing up in the lead range. Another High Performance upgrade, the sturdy zero-fret nut gives you the ability to tailor your action to preference with the adjustable nut angle and string height. Instead of acrylic, the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP boasts Trapezoid fretboard inlays in genuine mother-of-pearl.

A pair of Burst Bucker Pro pickups deliver all that timeless PAF growl and bite that you desire, but there's a lot more going on under the hood of this High Performance axe that sets this apart as one of the most versatile Les Pauls created in its 64 year history. Giving you countless sonic options right at your fingertips, the pickups are routed through independent volume and tone controls that feature push/pull knobs, and adding even more tonal variety, the electronics include an onboard Dip switch that offers over 150 rewiring options. The electronics also feature an upgraded sturdier, noiseless toggle switch and a gold-plated multi-contact jack for optimum connection.

The hardware on the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP has also been upgraded on this model. It comes loaded with Gibson's next-generation G FORCE tuning system that offers quieter operation, better looks, and provides a smooth feel when tuning manually. The Les Paul Standard 2016 HP also comes equipped with a traditional Tune-O-Matic bridge/stop bar tailpiece combo, but the bridge now is upgraded with strong, corrosion-resistant titanium saddles for superior tone and performance. A luxurious, durable High Performance aluminum hardshell case is included for unparalleled protection.
