Product Description

A truly refined guitar, the Les Paul Standard Plus fills the void between the Les Paul Standard and the Les Paul Custom.
Starting at the neck, the Les Paul Standard now features an enlarged neck tenon for maximum wood contact, and a new asymmetrical neck profile that makes it one of the most comfortable and playable necks ever offered. Locking Grover Rotomatic tuners with an improved gear ratio of 18:1 are also a first for the Les Paul Standard. A new level of sonic clarity is achieved by new, cusom-made, gold-plated potentiometers made by Bourns. The guitar boasts a great lineup of other features, including a carved AA figured maple bound top, Burstbucker Pro pickups and great sunburst finishes.

If you can handle everything about the Gibson except the price, check this out. Engineers designed this modern classic with the arched top and fast neck of the best Les Pauls. It has an arched, figured curly Maple, carved top in faded sunburst finishes for that great LP look. And like all Les Pauls, features a solid glued neck joint for great sustain and stability. These guitars are built to 100% Gibson specifications.

It’s also one of the first Gibson USA models to utilize the revolutionary Plek system, a computer-controlled setup that carefully measures and dresses each fret, accurately measuring the height between the fingerboard and each string, virtually eliminating string buzz and providing unbeatable playability. A set of Gibson’s Burstbucker Pro humbuckers deliver the powerful punch expected from a Les Paul, faithfully capturing the magic of Gibson’s legendary PAF pickups of the 1950’s. A chambered mahogany body gives the 2008 Standard enhanced resonance, and a plain maple top pays homage to the iconic Les Pauls of the late 1950’s. Other new features include TonePros’ locking Nashville Tune-o-matic and stopbar tailpiece, and each one comes with Gibson USA’s standard black snakeskin case.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Excellent, they say you will get a AA top and I did, was worried about that since it really "luck of the draw" Gibsons AA tops can vary from A to AAA for the very same guitar. Big drawback for me on ordering, but I got what I wanted, definitely AA top. Have yet to find a flaw on the craftmenship. Top post on the bridge is a little loose in the guitar.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a fantastic instrument, nothing feels quite like it. There is a definite silkyness to this axe. Top notch looks, great wood.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
All the tones are there. Was quite excited about the rhythm selector up with a little highs off the tone knob, Jazz city! This guitar can truly do it all, I primarily use this guitar for loud rock, it screams with the Dimebucker in the bridge.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Absolutely Gorgeous, stunning guitar.
