Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s The Music Zoo Review

The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant, played and loved!

This Les Paul Standard 60's is a guitar that gets straight to the point, and is everything that The Music Zoo loves about Gibson guitars - the Les Paul Standard '60s is all about the tone. The model sports a solid mahogany body with an AA figured maple top, and a slim taper 60's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. The sweet features continue with its classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, and Burstbucker 61R pickups.

Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s Tone

The smooth yet familiar tone arrives thanks to its Burstbucker 61R (neck) Burstbucker 61T (bridge) pickups, loaded with AlNiCo V magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors. A forgiving, yet clear and precise clean tone is right at your fingertips. Turn up the gain and you'll be pleased to also find the singing tones of yesteryear! The pickups are very responsive to the dynamics of your picking style, and give you just what you are looking for when you ask for it.

Why We Like It

The Gibson Les Paul Standard '60s pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The guitar is at a price point of $2499 where if you don't want to make the jump to a Custom Shop instrument - all the classic features of a Les Paul Standard are still right at your fingertips!

You Might Also Consider

Be sure to check out the Les Paul Classic, a model that features a maple top over a 9-hole weight relief body, a set of zebra-bobbin Burstbucker 61R and 61T pickups. If you're looking for more versatility, this is the way to go, as switching lets you get single-coil, out of phase, and Pure Bypass (bridge pickup straight to the output jack) all in one instrument!
