Les Paul Standard ’50s A Classic, Reborn

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 aged gold tophat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.
