Diving into the Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s guitar feels akin to stepping into a time machine set for the golden age of electric guitars. It's more than just a nostalgia trip - it's a journey into the heart of what made this design a rock 'n' roll icon.
The legendary single-cut design starts with a mahogany body topped with a visually arresting maple cap with patterns of sawn grain and flaming. This pairing isn't mere coincidence; it's the original recipe for that thick, warm, and meaty Les Paul tone lauded throughout the annals of rock music.
Onto this tonewood canvas, a 50s vintage mahogany neck is painstakingly set. The neck, complemented by a gorgeous rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius, makes your hand feel right at home. Add in the 22 medium jumbo frets, and you've got a playground for your digits. And let's not forget those acrylic trapezoid inlays that gleam with a wink to tradition.
Nestled into this Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s guitar are a pair of potent Burstbuckers. Think of them not as mere pickups, but as the dynamic duo hell-bent on serving up thick slabs of tonal goodness. Burstbucker 1 in the the neck dishes out those luscious, warm tones, while Burstbucker 2 at the bridge balances the sonic equation with a touch of added bite. With hand-wired circuitry enhanced by premium Orange Drop capacitors, every nuance of your playing is faithfully captured and relayed, bringing the tone to life in vivid, high-fidelity detail.
Cloaked in a Heritage Cherry Sunburst finish, this Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s guitar wears its nitrocellulose gloss like a badge of honor, paying homage to the guitars of yesteryears that still fuel our rock fantasies.
The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s is a time-tested, genre-spanning, string-screaming, stage-commanding phenomenon that's here to stay. If you're a stickler for the classics, this one's for you.
