Body & Neck

The guitar is made with the winning formula that the Les Paul is known for. The solid Mahogany body is topped with Figured Maple. This classic combo gives you an undeniably beautiful aesthetic, not to mention jaw-dropping sustain, weighty lows and a timeless top-end sparkle.

In keeping with tradition, the neck is also Mahogany, in this case using a rounded ‘50s-style profile. Combined with a Rosewood fingerboard and Trapezoid inlays, it feels, looks and sounds every bit as classic as you’d expect.

Hardware & Electronics

Gibson have loaded the ‘50s Standard with Burstbuckers featuring Alnico II magnets. These magnets are known for their PAF-style sound; combined with the Mahogany & Maple duo and handwired electronics with Orange Drop capacitors, the Burstbuckers deliver that singing Les Paul tone that’s inspired guitarists for generations.

The hardware has been carefully selected to echo the classic Les Paul blueprint. Vintage Deluxe tuners & Amber Top Hat knobs are among the notable features, with Nickel plating and luxurious binding perfectly tells the story of an iconic instrument.

PAF Style Burstbuckers

The Burstbucker Humbuckers on the ‘50s standard have a warmer output featuring Alnico II magnets producing that classic PAF-style sound. Rich and warm in tone, these pickups give you a beefy low-end and clear mid-range, whilst being able to handle clarity in overdriven gain when turned up to the max.

Key Features

  • AA Maple Figured Top – In a nitro finish, giving you that authentic look in a beautiful honey sunburst.
  • PAF-Style Humbuckers – Projects that classic and timeless Les Paul sound with a balanced, rich mid-range and beefy low-end.
  • Comfortably Chunky – Staying true to the original Les Paul, the ‘50s Vintage neck profile provides a comfortable feel for bigger hands or those that prefer to add extra thumb support when moving up and down the fretboard.
  • Classically Meets Contemporary – Constructed with era correct knowledge, built to perfection to meet modern standards with a tonal resonance and sonic range to rival any stage.
