Ever since PAF humbuckers met flamed-maple top in 1958, the Les Paul Standard has been revered among players for its unparalleled heights of tone and playability, as well as its sultry looks. The guitar took on iconic status in the hands of players such as Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff, Slash, Zakk Wylde, and countless others. Now the Les Paul Standard from Gibson USA kicks the legend into a whole new dimension, loading an ergonomic new fingerboard radius and incredibly versatile pickup switching functions onto a guitar that otherwise still embodies everything that made the "standard" legendary and making this powerful performer available for right- and left-handed players alike. Two of Gibson's most accurate PAF reproductions are routed through switching that—while looking entirely traditional—provides humbucking low-noise single coil, out-of-phase, and direct-through tones, in addition to the usual options. And just like the gorgeous Les Paul Standards of 1958-60, the Les Paul Standard achieves all this while looking great, too, with your choice of Standard or Grade AAA-Premium figured maple top beneath a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish in Heritage Cherry Sunburst, Honey Burst, Desert Burst, Light Burst, Tea Burst, Fireball, Translucent Amber, Translucent Black, Ebony, Gold Top or Blue Mist.
