A ‘Standard' is an agreed way of doing something, a process upon which all others are judged. That definition really describes the Gibson Les Paul Standard perfectly, as it is the electric guitar that all others are regularly compared to. Ever since it was first released back in 1958, the Gibson Les Paul Standard has been used by legions of guitarists on stages and in studios worldwide. AMS is stocked with a wide collection of these dazzling professional guitars - that includes the Gibson USA instruments, Exclusive Run releases, and Gibson Custom Shop models that highlight the exact characteristics of legendary vintage models from the late 1950s down to the smallest details. This is also the spot to find the newest custom Gibson Les Paul Goldtops, which are modeled after the very first production Les Pauls ever made - Gibson P-90 pickups and the distinct gold finish are timeless in every way!
