£2,099.99Price

Gibson’s Les Paul Standard is a legend. Here's a superb example with all the best "good wood" specs and a gorgeous top! This one weighs over 9 1/2 pounds also with the sustain to match. In addition we have a 1 piece mahogany solid body. All the Good specs equating to awesome tone. The mahogany body adds warmth while the carved, figured maple top adds brightness and beauty. The 1 piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. 490/498 pickups dish out classic tone with increased bite and midrange. A Stopbar tailpiece, Tuneomatic bridge and Kluson style tuners round out the package. This example is finished in gorgeous Tobacco burst lacquer. A really great looking guitar. Accept no substitutes, own a real Les Paul!


This Les Paul has nice tone and good feel. The pickups sound great and the neck is easy to play. The neck shape feels to be a medium taper neck. Bigger than most 60s necks I've seen but not huge. A nice playing and sounding example. In amazing condition and we all know how hard that is to come buy for this era. Even the most fussy of customers would be hard pushed to find any hint of a graze or previous signs of use – It is exceptionally clean and complete with the original Gibson hard-shell case.
