Here we have at RGG a truly lovely & 100% mint condition pre-owned 2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard T finished in glorious Heritage Cherry. This AAA flame-topped beauty, has not been gigged at all & really looks the business. She has Alnico 5 Burstbucker Pro Humbuckers, operated by volume push-pull coil taps, as well as a neck push-pull tone phasing control & a fabulous addition to this model is the bridge tone control that acts as a true bypass, allowing you to totally bypass the tone circuits etc & drives the pickups straight into the amp! This feature is seen on many boutique guitars, but not so much on Les Pauls! Her frets are 100% perfect & the action is like butter. She has a slim taper neck & a 10″-16″ compound radius fingerboard with slim frets, for ease of playing right up the neck. This 2016 also has modern weight relief, she still feels like a true Les Paul at just short of 9lb, but without causing curvature of the spine! She sleeps in her deluxe plush lined brown Tolex case & comes with scratchplate & all candy & tools.
We are confident that you will not find a cleaner pre-owned example of this 2016 Les Paul anywhere, so don’t miss out on this one!
Some more spec taken from the web:
Players have been asking for Gibson to bring back a more traditional Les Paul Standard to the USA line and Gibson have listened! So this Les Paul Standard Traditional brings back all of the classic features that were missing from the 2015 line all in a sweet new package.
There is a particular feel that most have come to expect with a Les Paul. While other guitars focus on slimming down the neck and body to allow for crazy stage play. Gibson instead really focus on giving you the best sustain, tone and feel possible by putting a couple big old chunks of Mahogany in your hands.
The body is made out of weight relieved Mahogany topped with stunning AAA flamed maple that keeps all of the sustain of a regular block but at a much lower weight. This means less back/shoulder pain and much more time being able to spent playing your guitar.
The neck is traditional in every sense of the word. It features the historic 1-11/16″ neck width that can be found on all traditional Les Pauls with a 24.75″ scale length. It certainly is thick but never uncomfortable something in the realm of slimmer 60’s style neck finished with a rosewood fretboard.
Ok all of this talk about traditional feel and features is great but it is the tone that really matters at the end of the day. Gibson knows this so they have fitted this guitar with a set of their amazing Burstbucker Pro pickups.
These pickups take the classic PAF pickups with their smooth low to mid gain response and crank them up a notch. These are PAFs with attitude. By using a new Alnico 5 magnet over the traditional Alnico 2 you get more bite, more attack and more gain with less noise. If you need something that has a traditional tone but that can support higher gain solos and chunky rhythms this is what you need.
The Hardware Inside
But what about things like tuning stability- Well This guitar may not have any kind of fancy tuning system but what it does have is a set of killer hardware that has been used for generations of Les Paul guitars.
The traditional stoptail bridge that has been used for as long as the Les Paul has been around and Grover tuners mean you can rely on this guitar in any gigging environment. Just turn up to your next gig, tune up and get rocking nothing is going to let you down here.
Here’s what Gibson say about the Les Paul Standard T
All the ingredients that made the Les Paul name legendary are in the Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 T: your choice of a skillfully carved plain maple (non-translucent colors) or AAA figured maple top on a mahogany back, perfectly crafted mahogany neck, Burstbucker Pro pickups with coil-splitting capabilities, locking tuning machines, and neck and body binding. This is truly a comprehensively featured, fully loaded Les Paul, with a compound-radius rosewood fingerboard and modern weight relief to provide outstanding balance and playing feel while optimizing the guitar’s celebrated tone.
