New Release | Custom Colour Gibson Les Paul Standard

29 Aug 2023

The Gibson Les Paul, guitar royalty. There’s not much that can be said about this legendary instrument that hasn’t already been said a thousand times before. Arguably the most important guitar design of all-time, it’s held its position at the top of the tree for over 70 years, and with no signs of being toppled anytime soon, it’s easy to suggest it’ll remain at the top for another 70 years. 

The intricate design of those sweeping contours, the iconic burst finishes, the power and clarity of the humbuckers, the Les Paul is often imitated but rarely bettered, there’s just something about a USA Gibson that makes them hard to beat.

BRAND NEW from Gibson USA for 2023 is the incredible Custom Colour selection. A stunning batch of plain and figured top 50’s and 60’s USA Les Paul Standards, with, you guessed it, super cool custom colour finishes!

For the initial launch period, dealers have exclusivity on various colours, and here at Peach Guitars we’ve been fortunate enough to secure Figured 50’s and 60’s in Translucent Oxblood and Plain 50’s and 60’s in Inverness Green. Inspired by some of the sweetest, and often long forgotten, finishes of the 50’s and 60’s, these custom colours offer a really cool take on the classic Les Paul Standard.

So let’s take a look and start with the Gibson USA Les Paul Standard ‘50s. Bringing the magic of those original run Les Paul’s, the ‘50s Standard delivers everything you expect and love about the Les Paul. With a Mahogany body and a Maple top, the ‘50s model does NOT feature any weight relief, you get full fat Mahogany here and the weight to match! The neck carve is a little fatter too, no slim profile but equally it’s not an absolute baseball bat. It’s comfortable and easy underhand, exactly what you’d want. The ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece offer an authentic ‘50s feel and is the bridge of choice on Custom Shop models!

Vintage style Keystone tuners double up with the bridge to provide incredible tuning stability and intonation. A pair of Burstbucker 1&2 pickups, with a slightly lower output than the ‘60s models, kick out those smooth grooves and crisp overdriven tones. Some of the most highly sought after PAF pickups around, the Burstbuckers are a really popular choice and really take this guitar to the next level.

If you’re looking for something a little more modern with a little more grunt in the trunk, then the ‘60s Standard is the one for you!

You get that same iconic Mahogany and Maple dream team pairing, but this time you do get a little bit of weight relief, it doesn’t compromise on tone but it does offer a touch of relief for your back!

We’ve got an incredible range of USA Gibson Les Paul’s, all individually photographed and with our own unique videos. We aim to give you the most comprehensive overview of each guitar here at Peach Guitars, we even provide the weight for each individual guitar!
