The 2018 Gibson Les Paul Standard HP is where history and innovation meet, a perfect blend of late '50s styling and upgraded High Performance spec.
A stunning Grade-AAA figured maple top, finished in the amazing Heritage Cherry Fade, offers a modern take on the classic 50's Bursts, and with Gibson's Ultra-Modern weight relief, this Les Paul benefits from enhanced resonance and sustain without the back breaking weight.
Then this classic guitar gets a modern makeover. The beautiful mahogany Soloist neck with Fast-Access heel and a Rosewood fingerboard is fast, comfortable and features a Titanium zero fret adjustable nut for incredible tone, sustain and durability.
Loaded with Burstbucker 2 and 3+ humbuckers the HP is a little more on the edge than the Standard and with the push/pull and DIP switch you now have even more control over your tone. In fact, there are over 150 sonic variations on the 2018 Gibson Les Paul Standard HP. It is easy to see why they named this guitar the High Performance.
