Product Description

The Iconic Les Paul Standard Plus from Gibson USA kicks the legend of the Les Paul into a whole new dimension, loading an ergonomic new fingerboard radius and incredibly versatile pickup switching functions onto a guitar that otherwise still embodies everything that made the Standard legendary. Add two Gibson BurstBucker Pro pickups switchable between humbucking, low-noise single coil, out-of-phase, and direct-through tones and top it off with a Grade-AAA figured top

Key features include a superbly comfortable new asymmetrical rendition of the SlimTaper 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 and 2 pickups that provides individual coil splitting, phase reversal, and Pure Bypass switching all without changing the look of the classic control layout.

Construction
The Les Paul Standard Plus for 2013 follows the same formula as the most beloved Les Pauls of all time. The guitar shows off its looks with a gorgeous Grade-AAA Figured Maple top. The marriage of solid maple top and mahogany back, treated to Gibson’s new modern weight relief pattern for improved comfort and enhanced resonance, provides a blend of richness, depth, punch, and clarity that no single-wood guitar can provide.

A solid, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is carved in a new asymmetrical version of the popular ’60s profile, making it one of the most appealing necks Gibson has ever produced, and its topped with a bound rosewood fingerboard with a superbly playable compound radius that’s rounder down in the open chord positions and flatter up in the lead zone. Traditional trapezoid inlays keep it all looking just right, along with cream binding, pickguard, and pickup rings, amber top-hat knobs, and a traditional black-and-white bell truss rod cover.

Electronics
Real surprises lurk in the Les Paul Standard Plus Electric Guitar’s 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’s 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’s tone control for reverse-phase tones, or lift the bridge pickup’s tone knob to tap Gibson’s 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, making it a great instant lead preset.

Hardware
The innovative pairing of a locking TonePros Tune-o-Matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece ensures solid sustain and precise intonation, while a set of high-quality locking Grover kidney-button tuners ensures smooth, accurate tuning.

General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
The standard plus is absolutely amazing. The detail is top notch, so many options for sound, the Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus is definately a high end guitar for a moderate price.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
very high quality. with the coil splitting, bypass knob, and phase knob, you can pretty much nail any genre you want.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
the standard is niether heavey nor light, the neck is asymmetrical and it's very comfortable. the frets feel smooth and inviting, the controls have always been too far back in my own personal opinion. The knobs are a little stiff but im sure they'll loosen up in time.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
the pickups respond very well to pick attack, which i like, the tone is amazing i've already covered that.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
paint job is flawless, very smooth to touch and shiny. i own the heritage cherry sunburst.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
the price is expectingly high but i got mine new somewhere else on sale for the price of a dent and scratch one here. the payment plans are amazing on AMS though
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
action was spot on, i had to adjust intonation a tad bit.
