    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.

    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.

    My New Favorite Les Paul
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I just purchased this guitar last week and have been unable to put it down since. I have several Les Pauls and this one by far is the most fun to play. The one I purchased was a 2014 Ice Tea. What is amazing is that the floating Floyd Rose stays in tune despite it still having the original strings on this guitar since it was put in its case at the factory back in 2014. This guitar is thinner and lighter than a regular Les Paul and has a contoured top edge. Therefore, my back can endure longer periods of play while standing, and the rib cage does not get gouged during seated play. I purchased this guitar from AMS for $1,200 less than any other place had it listed. I highly recommend this guitar. You will not be disappointed with a Les Paul Axcess Floyd Rose.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great guitar, I'm playing for almost 40 yrs and it's one of the nicest I've ever played. Awesome tone, very versatile with the ability to switch from humbucker to single coil, and the Floyd Rose is great.
