81 Gibson LP Standard

Wine Red Les Paul Standard perfect Gibson LP colour

Price: £1,899.00
S/N: R190

Description

Loud, powerful, lyrical, expressive – everything an LP Standard should be. With a really fast and low fretboard, reminiscent of the so-called “fretless-wonder” that was the original Les Paul Custom. We’ve strung it with D’Addario 11 strings and set-up with a medium low action (could go even lower if you like).

The wine red finish is as classy as it gets, and looks incredibly distinguished when coupled with the cream bindings, pickguard and switch surround. Make no mistake about it – this is one good-looking Les Paul.

On picking it up, you notice the weight of it – 13” width of solid mahogany body with a maple top isn’t light, but that’s what delivers the legendary tone and sustain.

Made in the old Kalamazoo plant, where all the great 50s Les Pauls were made, there is a patch of player wear on back at the upper edge. It is also missing a small piece from the neck-side corner of the pickguard, a common fracture point in Les Pauls.
