Always a classic beauty, the Les Paul Standard 2017 benefits from several groundbreaking updates. New Ultra-Modern weight relief allows for comfortable play and greater sonic depth. An asymmetrical slim-taper neck profile with a compound-radius fingerboard and rolled binding team up for outstanding comfort, speed and bend-ability. And push-pull switching on all four knobs for coil tapping on both pickups, a pure bypass, and phase reverse all combine in a truly modern Les Paul that still looks legendary. This stellar guitar is delivered in a Gibson hardshell case with a Gibson multi-tool, a premium leather strap, and a polishing cloth.
