The Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s Faded is a testament to the enduring legacy of the iconic Les Paul guitars. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this guitar pays homage to the golden era of rock 'n' roll while offering modern players a vintage-inspired instrument with a distinct personality.
At its core, this Les Paul boasts a resonant mahogany body, elegantly adorned with a AA flamed maple top. The Vintage Honey Burst satin nitro lacquer finish not only enhances the aesthetics but also provides the tactile sensation of a well-loved instrument, without artificially added play wear or aging effects. It's a guitar that feels like an old friend from the moment you pick it up.
The Les Paul Standard 50s Faded features the rounded Vintage 50s neck profile, offering players a meaty yet comfortable grip. Its Rosewood fingerboard features a bound edge and a 12" radius, complete with acrylic trapezoid inlays in classic Les Paul Standard fashion. It also features Graph Tech nut, ensuring precise tuning stability.
In terms of hardware, this Les Paul doesn't disappoint. The ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge and stop tailpiece are finished in nickel, harmonizing beautifully with the Vintage Deluxe tuners sporting Keystone buttons. This combination not only enhances the guitar's playability but also guarantees rock-solid tuning integrity.
When it comes to sound, the Les Paul Standard 50s Faded adheres to the traditional Les Paul configuration, coming equipped with two Gibson Burstbucker pickups, individual volume and tone controls, and a 3-way selector switch. Both pickups are double-black and uncovered, with a Burstbucker 2 in the bridge position and a Burstbucker 1 in the neck. Hand-wired with Orange Drop capacitors, the electronics ensure that every note is full of character and warmth - and timeless Les Paul growl.
The Les Paul Standard 50s Faded comes complete with a hardshell case, offering the protection your cherished instrument deserves. Whether you're a seasoned professional or an aspiring musician, the Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s Faded is a superb choice that captures the spirit of a classic era while delivering the reliability and playability demanded by today's musicians.
