New Les Paul Standard and Studio



I really dig the changes on the LP standard. The things sounds really versatile. It also seems like they have a real rosewood board. (Instead of the paper mache one )

Played a Standard that came into work yesterday and it was the thinnest LP neck I've ever felt. Played pretty well. Had a rosewood board.

Gibson e-mailed us ahead of time to let the employees know of the changes to both models. Weird for a company that doesn't give a .....

"Welcome tooo this placeee, I show you everyyyythannnggggggg

Wow. Very cool.

I'm really intrigued by the compound radius neck they're now offering. I'm a little disappointed it's not 12" - 16", but eh.

and FINALLY... locking tuners. Welcome to the new millennium, Gibson. It's nice for you to have finally joined us.

Very cool, this last year or so Gibson has finally come to their senses a bit. I'm eyeing a Les Paul Traditional at my local store myself, satin Honey Burst with a zebra Burstbucker/490R set. Best Les Paul I've played since probably 2008.

The new standard is pretty intriguing. Compound radius and locking tuners is pretty cool for a gibson. Now if the price tag was a little bit more down to earth we could talk.

10"-16" it says it in the vid.

^this. I've been dying for a heritage cherry LP ever since I saw my first Les Paul. I'm all about versatility via push/pull knobs. I wouldn't be surprised if we're looking at one of the better iterations of the standard.

just checked Gibson's site and on the specs you can read "modern weight relief" and actually has a pic of it... weird... better than chambering though...

I like the tighter (smaller) compound radius boards. Every suhr I have played had one. Wish it was 10-14, but good job gibson on getting all modern on us. The 16 in radius always feels a little too flat under my fingers.
