  • Description

    Since its introduction in 1958, the Les Paul Standard has been the heart and soul of the Gibson lineup, and today, the Les Paul Standard continues to preserve its acclaimed role as the centerpiece of the 2016 Traditional Series lineup. The Les Paul Standard 2016 T offers incredible versatility, more so than any of its predecessors, exemplifying Les Paul's vision of both elegance and innovation. The Standard offers the perfect union between modern flexibility and playability fused with timeless Gibson tone and style.

    The body of this Les Paul Standard 2016 T is crafted from the highest-quality tonewoods: visually and tonally appealing AAA-grade figured maple (plain maple on non-translucent colors) for the top paired with a weight-relieved mahogany back. These classic Les Paul ingredients provide you with that esteemed Gibson-fueled tone that is unmistakably Les Paul. Gibson employs their unique modern weight relief pattern into the design, offering a happy medium between fully chambered and traditional weight relief. The result is a lighter, more comfortable feel along with superb resonance and sustain. Accentuating the beautiful maple figure while catering to its overall visual allure, the Les Paul Standard 2016 T is available in array of a stunning high gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finishes: Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Fire Burst, Honey Burst, Translucent Amber, Desert Burst, Translucent Black, Tea Burst, Blue Mist, Light Burst, Gold Top and Ebony.

    The neck is carved from mahogany into an asymmetrical version of the coveted SlimTaper neck profile, making this one of the most comfortable and most appealing necks that Gibson has ever produced. The compound radius, bound rosewood fingerboard facilitates outstanding playability across its entirety, with a flatter radius higher up on the fingerboard for leads & solos and a rounder radius closer to the nut for open chords.

    Under the hood of this Les Paul Standard 2016 T are a set of upgraded BurstBucker Pro pickups. Based off of the blueprint for late '50s PAF humbuckers, these pickups will deliver all the vintage PAF growl and bite you crave. Blending classic Gibson tone with all the versatility demanded by today's modern player, these pickups both offer coil-tapping capabilities that can take you from that beefy humbucker tone to a single-coil snap instantly with the dual push/pull volume knobs. The independent tone controls also feature push/pull pots and will further broaden your tonal horizons. For reverse-phase tones just simply pull up tone control for the neck pickup or pop the bridge pickup's tone control up to tap into Gibson's innovative Pure Bypass setting, which routes that pickup straight through the output jack and into your amplifier, bypassing the volume and tone controls resulting in superb tonal clarity and scorching hot tones, perfect as an "instant lead" preset.

    Giving this guitar its unparalleled sustain, precise intonation and incredible tuning stability, this Les Paul Standard 2016 T comes equipped with a Tone Pro Tune-O-Matic bridge, a Tone Pro stopbar tailpiece and a set of the high-quality locking Grover kidney-button tuners. Paying homage to the original, the Les Paul Standard 2016 T also employs classic specs including a 24.75" scale length, a 1-11/16" nut width, classic trapezoid fingerboard inlays, cream binding, creams pickup rings, a cream pickguard (inside the case), amber top-hat knobs and a traditional black and white bell truss rod cover. Comes complete with a hardshell case.
