2013 USA Gibson Les Paul Premium Plus / Birdseye Top
This guitar is near MINT condition and plays as good as it looks. This is the most versatile Les Paul ever created. Key features include a superbly comfortable Slim Taper neck profile that fits the player's hand like a glove, a compound-radius rosewood fingerboard, and stealth wiring for the great BurstBucker Pro 1 & 2 pickups that provides individual coil splitting, phase reversal, and Pure Bypass switching all without changing the look of the classic control layout. To top it off, this Les Paul Standard 2013 looks sublime in its AAA Birdseye Maple top in nitrocellulose lacquer.
The Les Paul Standard 2013 follows the same formula as the most beloved Les Pauls of all time. The marriage of solid maple top and mahogany back, provides a blend of richness, depth, punch, and clarity that no single-wood guitar can provide.
Traditional trapezoid inlays keep it all looking just right, along with cream binding, and pickup rings, amber top-hat knobs, and a traditional black-and-white bell truss rod cover. Classic Gibson constructional elements ensure the new Les Paul Standard plays just like the greatest Standards ever.
The new Les Paul Standard' real surprises lurk in its upgraded pickups and extremely clever wiring and control setup. A pair of BurstBucker Pro pickups, a #1 in the neck position and #2 in the bridge, follow the blueprint for Gibson' hallowed PAF humbuckers of the late ™50s, but are updated with potted coils for howl-free performance at high volumes, and four-conductor wiring that allows for incredible versatility.
The independent volume pot for each pickup has push-pull switching to independently split the coils for single-coil tones, with hum-cancelling performance in the middle position thanks to a reverse-wound/reverse-polarity bridge pickup. Pop up the neck pickup' tone control for reverse-phase tones, or lift the bridge pickup' tone knob to tap Gibson' new Pure Bypass setting, which routes that pickup straight through to the output jack, bypassing the volume and tone controls for a hotter, clearer sound. Stop by and experience one of the best Les paul model guitars Gibson has ever produced!
