The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved - shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The Les Paul Standard 50's has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It's equipped with an ABR-1, the classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and amber top hat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

..for going back to what made the Les Paul such an iconic guitar. I've been holding out on this guitar and I'm glad I did. It is a work of art, and the tone is absolutely incredible. It weighs like a tank and sounds like one too. Best guitar I've ever owned.
