You are looking at a Gibson Les Paul Standard 2017 HP Electric Guitar Honey Burst, serial number 170081307. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (8 lbs, 9.7 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 2017 HP benefits from all of these groundbreaking HP features.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 2017 HP starts out with an upgraded premium AAAA-grade figure maple top that really enhances the visual splendor of this Les Paul. New for 2017, the mahogany back employs Gibson's ultra-modern weight relief pattern, which provides an outstandingly comfortable playing experience that's paired with added sonic depth. Further accentuating the beauty of the Les Paul Standard 2017 HP, the guitar is available in a palette of gorgeous nitro lacquer finishes including Heritage Cherry Sunburst,  Honey Burst, Bourbon Burst, and an all-new luscious Blueberry Burst. Since the premium tops on these Les Pauls are truly exceptional, Gibson got rid of the Bass/Treble "poker chip" on the toggle switch for 2017 (because who wants to take away from such a beautiful top?).

Bringing the Les Paul to entirely new levels of playability and comfort, the Les Paul Standard 2017 HP features a fast, comfortable asymmetrical Slim Taper mahogany neck that features a slightly wider Soloist width than the Les Paul Standard 2017 T along with an ergonomic fast-access heel that allows for unprecedented access all the way to the very last fret. Equipped with smooth polished frets, 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 2017 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 65 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 2017 HP has also been upgraded on this model. It comes loaded with Gibson's next-generation G FORCE tuning system that offers improved gears, quieter operation, better looks, and a smooth feel when tuning manually. The Les Paul Standard 2017 HP also comes equipped with an aluminum Tune-O-Matic bridge/stop bar tailpiece combo with upgraded steel locking studs. The bridge is also upgraded with strong, corrosion-resistant titanium saddles for superior tone and performance. New for 2017, the Les Paul Standard 2017 HP now sports more contemporary-looking chrome knurled top hat knobs, a chrome truss rod cover, and chrome pickup rings.

A luxurious, durable High Performance aluminum hardshell case is included for unparalleled protection. A premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool, and polishing cloth are also included with your purchase of the Gibson Les Paul Standard 2017 HP.
