Mahogany Body with Flamed Maple Top

Maple and mahogany go hand in hand in producing an evenly balanced sound perfect for just about any occasion. Mahogany keeps the lows and mids present throughout your performance. Maple will focus a little more on the highs, bringing in a nice shine of brightness. The iconic Les Paul body shape makes for a comfortable fit, and with Gibson's modern weight relief design, you can move around more comfortably while playing without getting weighed down. And of course, since this particular Les Paul Standard is a "Plus Top" model, the maple top has a distinctive flame pattern that looks as great as it sounds.

Burstbucker Pro Alnico 5 Humbuckers

Nothing comes quite as close to delivering a warm and powerful output like a solid pair of humbucking pickups, and your pair of Burstbucker Pro Alnico 5 humbuckers are no exception. Each pickup not only has its own volume and tone control, but all four control dials feature a push/pull switch for troves of different tones. Pull the volume dials to split your Burstbucker Pro pickups into single-coil mode, and push-pull the tone dials to run each pickup in or out of phase. You can also switch your bridge pickup to run straight to your output jack for a little extra edge.

Asymmetrical Slim Taper Neck

The Plus Top T's '60s neck profile features a compound radius fingerboard that's buttery to the touch. The dark rosewood fingerboard is rounder near the nut, which provides a comfy feel for playing chords and rhythm parts. The radius flattens slightly the higher up your hand travels -- a great feature if your hand is itching for solos and speedy licks.
