The Gibson Les Paul Standard '50s P-90 is a celebrated return to true form of the Les Paul Standard. For many years, Les Paul models were factory equipped with what many players felt to be excessive additional features such as push/pull pots, weight relieved bodies, too-thin necks, and the infamous self-tuning system. With this Les Paul Standard, Gibson answered the requests of many and brought their iconic solidbody back to where it all began.
This particular Les Paul Standard resembles that of vintage models from the mid-1950s, with notable features being an ABR-1 Tune-o-Matic bridge with stop bar tailpiece, a gorgeous Gold Top finish, and of course dual Alnico 5 P-90 pickups - providing tone rooted in jazz and adopted over the decades into raw, in-your-face rock and roll.
The Standard 50s P-90 model is a classic Gibson Les Paul in every way. Key features include a non-weight relived solid mahogany body with maple top, mahogany neck with '50s Vintage profile, rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, and Acrylic Trapezoid inlays. And yes, you have to tune it yourself! Adding to the '50s aesthetic is a set of Gibson Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons.
As for electronics, the Les Paul Standard '50s receives the classic layout of individual volume and tone, but there's more than that under the hood. This Les Paul features hand-soldered 500K CTS Audio Taper pots wired to Orange Drop Capacitors - truly a stellar upgrade from Les Paul Standards of the past equipped with pre-wired PCB circuit board electronics.
With the Les Paul Standard '50s P-90, you get what you get - and you won't be upset! If you're looking for classic 1950's-inspired tone for rock, jazz, and blues, you are absolutely in the right place.
