Product Description

Striking beauty. Unmatched power. Unbelievable versatility. The flagship of our High Performance lineup, the new Les Paul Standard 2017 HP is the most luxurious and groundbreaking Les Paul Standard ever made.

A super exclusive AAAA flamed maple top, premium chrome hardware, beautiful nitro finish, and genuine Mother of Pearl inlays deliver the luxury. Extreme performance comes from the prominent use of aluminum, steel, and titanium hardware (replacing traditional and tonally-inferior Zamac); an innovative Fast-Access heel and Soloist's neck width and asymmetrical slim-taper profile; and a revolutionary new re-wiring system that allows over 150 fully reversible sonic options from the PAF-inspired Burstbucker Rhythm Pro and Lead Pro pickups. Ultimately, the Les Paul Standard 2017 HP might look like the finest Les Paul you've ever laid eyes on, but it plays, feels, and sounds like nothing you've ever laid hands on.

Body and Neck
AAAA flamed maple top on a mahogany body with Ultra-Modern weight relief. Mahogany neck with soloist neck width, asymmetrical slim-taper profile, and rosewood compound radius fingerboard with 22 polished frets and genuine Mother of Pearl trapezoid inlays

Pickups and Electronics
Burstbucker Rhythm Pro and Lead Pro+ humbuckers. 2 volumes, 2 tones, 1 aviation grade toggle switch. Gold plated multi-contact jack. 4 push-pull (individual tap/split, phase, and coil selection) and 5 position DIP switch (Neck and Bridge Pickup Tap or Split, Neck and Bridge Vol Treble Bleed control, and Transient Suppression)

Hardware
Chrome aluminum TOM with titanium saddles and locking steel studs. Chrome aluminum Stop Bar with locking steel studs. Chrome knurled top hats knobs. G FORCE™ auto-tuning system

The 2017 HP Les Paul Standard is delivered in a Gibson High-Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool, and a polishing cloth.

Form and function. Sounds amazing, looks incredible

What is your opinion of this product?
Does a Las Paul need another review? I guess not. Everybody knows its sound. Now the HP package brings a boatload of versatility to it. GForce tuner is very handy. Finish is absolutely astonishing. I bought a blemished unit, but didn't even cared to look for the ding as I was mesmerized by its finish. Case is heavy as hell, but very aerospace looking. Lots of money for it, worth every penny

I love this guitar, well worth the money.
What is your opinion of this product?
Never thought this sound was possible at home. The strings are perfect, color is fabulous, case is heavy, needs wheel's.

You owe it to yourself!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have been playing guitar for over 46 years and still own both vintage and custom Les Paul guitars. I really did not need a new guitar; however, I no longer enjoy holding heavy guitars while playing. Needless to say, I went to every guitar store in and around Phoenix, and no one had one of these in stock for me to try. I took a leap of faith and decided to purchase a Bourbon Burst, and have played it daily since it arrived. The craftsmanship, tones, and integration of modern technology with traditional style come together to form a highly versatile instrument that can play any genre. Although the G-Force tuning system takes some time to get used to, it is accurate and a nice conversation piece. I am still learning all of the intricacies of this novel tool. The only criticism I have for this guitar is the aluminum case. As a disabled veteran, I no longer enjoy holding heavy guitars, yet am now stuck with an extremely heavy case that mars easily. Overall, great guitar!

Had high expectations... STILL blown away!
What is your opinion of this product?
I had a long wait for this guitar but it was well worth it. I've owned many guitars including other Les Pauls, SGs, etc. This is the best guitar that I have ever played. ~PROS~ The finish (Blueberry Burst) is amazing and can NOT be represented by photos. The weight relief was a bit strange at first but adds a resonance and "bark" to the guitar. Pickups and tone options are insane! Heel joint... MUCH needed. G-Force is something we've all needed in our lives for a long time. The strap buttons are nice and wide. The padding in the case provides a lot better support than the standard ones. ~CONS~ G-Force can get confused from time to time, but doesn't delude the value of it IMO.

Awesome Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
It is a beautiful guitar in Bourbon Burst, everyone who sees it says WOW. Out of the box it was set up with great action, so easy to play chords and riffs I love the tonal options.The Peter Green pot is fantastic. Gibson has really made a great guitar. I had reservations on the tuner. It didn't take me long to think the G-Force tuner is TOPS. Go from standard tuning to Open String tuning for Slide in about 10 seconds, 12 preset and 6 of my custom tuning. If you play one you'll love the options and ease of play.

Nearly Flawless
What is your opinion of this product?
Just got mine. It has no major problems that I've seen so far, except for G-Force being just average. (Might replace it down the line but it works well enough). The only flaw is the small nook in the headstock above the Gibson logo is either not painted or caked with sawdust. Either way, no biggie. Great looking, feeling, and smelling (like vanilla) guitar.

Finally a NEW Gibson to be excited about...
What is your opinion of this product?
Love all the new features - except I'm holding judgement on the G-Force. It did not work out of the box. Tech support showed me how to access factory reset function, and it worked fine. I've had bad experiences with the 2015 G-Force - replaced 2 units before Gibson recalled them from specific retailer I bought it from - replaced them with Grovers and a Snark. Back to the 2017 HP; beautiful execution, AAAA flame maple in Honey burst. Players neck is awesome design and well executed - easy to hit riffs that I had to learn to fight through on other guitars. The best thing is that Gibson has finally joined the club re: push-pull volume and tone pots to access coil splitting, sequencing, and some other circuitry magic via the pots and 5 DIP switches. I've set my bridge to split to a nice growling single coil with lead volume, and get a cool out of phase setting with a nice "dark" neck. At normal settings, she sounds like a pair of P90's. All iterations are simple to switch between.

This guitar really has the "Wow" factor
What is your opinion of this product?
I love every thing about my new Les Paul HP. This is by far Gibsons best upgrade to there product line to date. All you need to do is play one and you'll be sold. This guitar blows away any other guitar in its class. Check one out and I think you will agree.
