2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard Natural Satin Finish
The all-time favorite Gibson model, the Gibson Les Paul Standard is recognized the world over as an icon for rock and roll. As Gibson’s first solidbody electric guitar, the Les Paul Model made a lasting impression when it debuted in 1952, and it continues to shape the sounds of popular music.
Ever since PAF humbuckers met flamed-maple top in 1958, the Les Paul Standard has been revered among players for its unparalleled heights of tone and playability, as well as its sultry looks. The guitar took on iconic status in the hands of players such as Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield, Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff, Slash, Zakk Wylde, and countless others. Now the Les Paul Standard from Gibson USA kicks the legend into a whole new dimension however, otherwise still embodies everything that made the “standard” legendary.
Two of Gibson’s most accurate PAF reproductions are routed through standard switching, and just like the gorgeous Les Paul Standards of 1958-60, the Les Paul Standard achieves all this while looking fantastic.
The Les Paul Standard is crafted with all the classic ingredients that helped make this model a legend over the past 54 years. A carved maple top contributes clarity and sustain, while a mahogany body adds depth and richness and new modern weight relief enhances resonance and reduces weight.
A solid one-piece, quarter-sawn mahogany neck is glued in with a traditional mortis & tenon joint, and carved in the popular asymmetrical SlimTaper™ profile that first helped make Les Pauls the fastest players on earth back in 1960.
A Zibra Coil BurstBucker Pro Rhythm and Zibra Coil BurstBucker Pro Lead pickups are all you need to get that classic Les Paul tone. The traditional cream pickguard is in the case should you decide to mount it, unused and factory sealed.
This 2005 Gibson Les Paul Standard is in excellent + condition with a couple of small surface scratches. The pickguard is included loose in the case. It has very minor fretwear and Includes original Gibson Hardshell Case.
