Les Paul Guitar Image

Gibson craftsmen hand-rub the traditional sunburst finishes on the new Les Paul Standard Faded models. A satin treatment gives the Standard Faded the weathered look of an old favorite without the wear and tear.The Standard is outfitted with the new BurstBucker Pro pickups with Alnico V magnets producing the most authentic, vintage Les Paul tone of any previous Standard pickups. They produce more bite and a seductive ‘airy’ tone with both pickups on.
Faded glory with BurstBucker Pros and a gracefully aged finish. The Gibson Les Paul Standard Faded ’60s Neck Electric Guitar has the look and feel of an old friend and the sound of a tonal dynamo. These gorgeous musical instruments sport a smaller, vintage headstock and slim taper, ’60s-style neck. AA carved maple top, mahogany back and fixed neck, keystone tuner buttons, plus bound rosewood fingerboard. The robust and heavy tone only a genuine Les Paul can give with a truly classy paint job.
