Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 in Honey Burst Electric Guitar

All the ingredients that made the Les Paul name legendary are in the Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 T. This is truly a comprehensively featured, fully loaded Les Paul, with a compound-radius rosewood fingerboard and modern weight relief to provide outstanding balance and playing feel while optimizing the guitar's celebrated tone.

Steeped in tradition, the 2016 Les Paul Standard T has all the ingredients that have made the Les Paul such a desirable guitar, and one of the most legendary.
This year™s model comes in a choice of carved plain maple top or beautifully figured maple top dependent on its finish. Body binding adds a familiar touch of elegance, while the mahogany back uses modern weight relief to add resonance and playing comfort.

The mahogany neck is also bound and features a thick rosewood fingerboard for more traditional feel and tone with a compound radius that offers the best playing experience possible, whether you'e fingering open chords or soloing up the neck. The nut width is slightly narrower this year, and marks a return to the historic original width that players prefer. Gibson uses a self-lubricating Graph Tech nut that helps strings return to pitch from heavy string bending while adding sustain.
Burstbucker Pro humbuckers offer true PAF tone with coil-splitting for alternate single-coil sounds.

Hardware includes Grover locking tuners for best-in-class performance. The 2016 Les Paul Standard T comes fully set up and ready for action right out of its traditional brown hardshell case.

Manufacture
Gibson

The home of Gibson electric guitars today is "Gibson USA," built in 1974 in Nashville specifically for the production of Gibson's Les Paul guitars. Although the entire guitar industry went through a slump in the late '70s, the spirit of innovation remained strong at Gibson. In response to a growing demand for vintage stylings, Gibson tapped its rich history and reissued the dot-neck version of the ES-335 in 1981 and the flametop sunburst Les Paul in 1982. At the same time, two legendary guitarists joined Gibson- B.B. King in 1980 with the Lucille model and Chet Atkins in 1982 with his new concept of a solidbody acoustic guitar.

Gibson world headquarters moved to Nashville in 1984 with the closing of the Kalamazoo plant. The financially troubled company was rescued in January 1986 by Henry Juszkiewicz and David Berryman, and the new owners quickly restored Gibson's reputation for quality as well as its profitability.

Today's Gibson electric guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. The models whose designs have become classics-the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SGs and Les Pauls-are a testament to Gibson's wide appeal, spanning more than four decades of music styles. Gibson's close relationship with musicians is manifest in endorsement models from King, Atkins and jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis, plus new Les Pauls made to the personal specifications of rock stars Jimmy Page and Joe Perry. In 1994, Gibson's Centennial year, the new Nighthawk model won an industry award for design, setting the stage for a second hundred years of Gibson quality and innovation.
