Gibson Les Paul Standard AAAA+ Monster Top 2017 – Honeyburst – Excellent condition – 9.0/10.
The top on this particular guitar is absolutely unreal – really 3D and one of the best I’ve seen on a Les Paul Standard. Come to think of it I’ve hardly even seen the depth of 3D top coming out of the custom shop!
This particular guitar is an absolute gem, plays beautifully and is in excellent condition aside from a very small 10mm blemish as pictured on the guitar edge. Its a fantastic player and in excellent condition with minimal play wear – it has been used so some very minor marks the camera won’t pick up but the guitar is excellent throughout and sounds amazing at 8.5lb.
The mahogany body adds a satisfying weight and piles of sustain, while the coil-split Burstbucker Pro pickups deliver massive tone full of harmonic richness and power with multiple tonal options. The Volume controls pull up to split the humbuckers for highly convincing single coil tones, whereas the Lead Tone control enables a pull out ‘Pure-Bypass’ mode, hard wiring the bridge pickup to the output jack, bypassing the other electronics and the Rhythm tone control acts as a Phase switch in its pulled up position.
Gibson have made the mahogany neck a compound radius and asymmetrical slim taper neck design – its lovely to play for both lead and rhythm work across the guitar’s range and the excellent fret work means that fast lead work is a breeze. The bound rosewood fingerboard adds a warmth of tone and great feel. Modern features such as weight relief, locking Grover tuners and a Tekoid nut add reliability and stability to the instrument.
The original Gibson hardcase, unfitted scratchplate, certificate of authenticity and Gibson warranty card are included.
