Product Description

Featuring elegant styling, fluid body lines, and a rocking attitude, the Gibson Les Paul Axcess Floyd Rose Electric Guitar is one of the most playable guitars in the world.

The result of Gibson’s drive to build the best Les Paul possible, the Axcess stays true to the design and performance of past Les Pauls, but features upgrades for maximum playability and versatility.

Body and Neck
Encounter the clever structural alteration that gives this new model its name by taking the instrument in your hands and running your fingers up the neck. The Axcess sports what looks from the front to be a traditional Les Paul neck joint, yet the neck heel and portions of the back and neck joint at the upper cutaway have been contoured to provide a heelless feel, and an unimpeded reach right up to the 22nd fret. No more stretching against the traditional neck heel to achieve the upper-fret access that your lead style demands — the Axcess gives you that legendary Les Paul playability all the way up the neck, welcoming you to take it right over the top. The one-piece, 24 3/4 inch scale length, mahogany neck features a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid fingerboard inlays.

To further enhance playing comfort, this smoothly carved neck joint is combined with a belly scarf (aka ribcage contour) that allows the body of the guitar to hug closely to your own body in the playing position without digging in. Add to these contours the Les Paul Axcess’s slightly thinner body, made from weight-relieved mahogany – with a carved maple top available in Iced Tea Burst or Gun Metal Gray finishes and single-ply cream binding on body top – and you’ve got an instrument that is refreshingly light, and a pure joy to play either strapped on, or in a seated position.

Hardware
The most noticeable addition is the Floyd Rose tailpiece, a unit optimized for anything from subtle vibrato wobbles to dramatic, rumbling divebombs. On the Axcess, the vibrato is installed right at Gibson Custom as part of the manufacturing process, which means this potent piece of high-performance hardware interacts seamlessly with the design of the guitar. Partnered with an R4 locking nut, it also guarantees outstanding tuning stability and return-to-pitch accuracy. 

496R and 498T Pickups
Beyond all these significant considerations for playing feel, the Axcess is also geared toward optimum tone, as you’d expect from any Gibson Custom creation. Exposed-coil 496R and 498T pickups in the neck and bridge positions — the ceramic 496R provides incredible sustain and definition with no muddiness and the 498T Alnico V is the perfect companion in the bridge position providing a high output with emphasis on mid-range and highs, while a push/pull switch on each volume knob provides coil splitting for each pickups for single coil tones.

These unique tonal combinations excel at delivering everything from singing classic rock lead tones to contemporary crunch to extremes of twang and jangle. Even the pure-nickel wound .10-.46 Gibson Vintage Strings it ships with contribute toward its rich, textured voice. Each instrument also comes with a Gibson Custom hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.

A Wonderful Twist on a Classic Guitar

What is your overall opinion of this product?
Although the Les Paul Axcess is a very expensive guitar whose price may turn away some buyers, this guitar is a joy to play and shows the high quality work of Gibson's best guitar makers. I was very disappointed with the factory setup, however, in that the string height out of the box was awful and the intonation was not exact. I spent a good hour setting up the Floyd Rose (can be challenging for those who don't normally use Floyd Rose equipped guitars) before I could actually enjoy playing the guitar. Seems like Gibson struggles a bit to set up a Floyd tremolo system. After setting up the correctly, this guitar produced the most angelic tones you could imagine. The resonance of the guitar unplugged was just outstanding. Once plugged in, this guitar's two coil splitting pickups produced bell like tones, both in chords and individual notes all over the fretboard. I debated buying this guitar for over a year. But I'm glad I bought it and have no regrets.
