Gibson Les Paul 2016 Standard Electric Guitar Translucent Black at a Glance:

  • PLEK'd for precision playability

The Les Paul recipe for sustain - mahogany body with AAA flamed maple top

Gibson's Les Paul Standard gives you the robust sustain you need for hot liquid solos and massive power chords. What's Gibson's secret? A major part of the Les Paul's tonewood recipe is the fusion of a maple top on a mahogany body. This combination is largely responsible for the legendary Les Paul sound, as well the LP's reputation for being rather heavy. But fear not! Modern weight relief has been scientifically applied to the Les Paul Standard, giving you all the sustain, without the pain.

'60s neck profile with compound radius fingerboard

Many guitarists consider Gibson's Slim Taper neck the most playable Les Paul neck ever made. Being huge fans of the benefits of a compound radius fretboard, we're excited that Gibson is joining their Slim Taper neck with a compound radius fretboard, making the playability even better. The fingerboard is rounder near the nut for easy chord-grabbing and rhythm playing. As your playing heats up and moves up the fretboard, the radius flattens out for easier runs and big, big string bends.

Pickups deliver true Les Paul sound - and then some

The Les Paul Standard features Burstbucker Pro pickups that give you everything you need for a classic humbucking sound. But there's more! The volume and tone knobs feature a push-pull configuration that allows you to choose between classic humbuckers and single coils. You can run both pickups alongside each other in or out of phase, and you can even send the bridge pickup directly to the jack output for added volume and brightness.

PLEK'd for precision playability

This Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 T feels fast and precise, thanks in large part to PLEK processing. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. Each note rings loud and clear, and the fret edges feel smooth as silk.
