As classic as it gets

There are only a few guitar designs that have decisively influenced generations of players and shaped the course of music history, and there is no question that Gibson's Les Paul is one of those few. Of course, this model has gone through numerous variations in the 70-odd years since it was first introduced, but most players ultimately still want instruments that are as close as possible to those from the late 1950s and early 1960s. That is exactly what they get with this guitar - which of course is manufactured to the highest standards of quality in the USA and is just waiting to continue the Les Paul's illustrious legacy.

The perfect guitar for Rock - and beyond

Explaining the Gibson Les Paul to a guitarist is pretty much like bringing sand to the beach - after all, anyone who is even remotely familiar with the history of the electric guitar or takes an interest in the instruments played by prominent musicians will have heard of this classic model. Rock musicians like Slash and Peter Frampton as well as more modern bands like In Flames are often among the first names to crop up in conjunction with the Les Paul, so many are quick to overlook how flexible it can be and how well it can handle other styles. Thanks to its excellent combination of woods, ingenious and now-legendary design, and top-quality hardware, the Les Paul Standard is quite simply a fantastic guitar. End of story.

For guitarists who want to keep growing, year after year

In these times of constant technological change, it is easy to forget that there is an essential, down-to-earth craftsmanship that goes into to playing the guitar. So if you are looking for an instrument that will both challenge you and boost your development while letting you find your very own style, you have come to the right place. There is a very good reason why the Gibson Les Paul has become a classic that is loved by millions of musicians around the world. Quite apart from its tonal characteristics, this guitar also looks stunning. The Iced Tea finish shown here, for example, brings out the grain of the guitar's maple top beautifully with its striking colour transition.

About Gibson

The Gibson Guitar Corporation was founded in 1902 by Orville Gibson and has its headquarters in Nashville, USA. Gibson is world famous and is loved by many musicians for its cult-status instruments. Gibson was responsible for building the world’s first mass-produced electric guitar, the ES-150, in 1936. The “Les Paul”, one of the first solid-body electric guitars, followed in 1952 and remains hugely popular to this day, in great part thanks to the “humbucker” pickups installed from 1957 onwards. The range has expanded over the years to include such well-known guitar models as the SG, the Flying V, and the ES-335, as well as bass guitars and acoustic guitars including the Thunderbird bass and the Hummingbird dreadnought. Well-known artists such as Pete Townshend, Slash, Angus Young, Tony Iommi, B.B. King, Michael Patrick Kelly, and Nikki Sixx, swear by Gibson guitars.

Develop your own unique sound

If you want to improve your guitar playing and find a sound and a style of your very own, you will need a partner that gives you all the necessary tools as well as plenty of flexibility to use them - and the Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s BB gives you both. It is of course also perfect for those who "only" want to unleash rocking riffs and creamy lead tones on the audience, but it is well worth studying this high-quality instrument in greater depth and fully exploring the sounds and possibilities offered by the two Burstbuckers, which are equipped with a dedicated volume and tone control each and governed by a three-way toggle switch. This combination puts the full range of sounds - from Funk and Jazz all the way to Metal - at the player's fingertips, so guitar and player together will form an unbeatable partnership.

Simply beautiful!

What a beauty. The sound and the looks are amazing. Gibson did a great job and managed to exceed my expectations!

After months of browsing the internet, watching YouTube movies and playing a Gibson LP custom that I borowed from my neighbor, I decided to go for this guitar standard 60s in the Iced Tea finish.

I ordered the guitar in July knowing that it would take some time before I would get it and the wait has most definitely paid off though I got bit anxious hearing stories from people about bad finishes and imperfections up to the point where some people are advising against buying a Gibson... Nothing of the sorts for my guitar. It's got an assembly date of 1 Sep 2021 and the only negative thing is that fretboard has a little bit of glue residue here and there and that it's completely dry. Nothing that a good clean and conditioning can't handle while replacing the strings. Finish and paint are excellent there's not even a ding under the scratch plate! Action out of the box is great, exactly to Gibson's specifications, I may lower it a little, but it plays very smooth and fast and damn the sound is hot, even hotter than my neighbor's custom. One of the reasons why I picked the standard 60s over the standard 50s.

Overall I'm very happy with my new guitar and I plan to enjoy it for the rest of my life!

As some would put it:
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.

There is little to say about this guitar, it just sounds frigging uber!

If you want a daily 'come to jesus' moment with your guitar, buy one of these and plug into a valve-amp. You will never go back.

For those looking at this guitar as a 'financial challenge', don't turn away. There is a reason you started looking at this guitar. The word 'pedigree' doesn't even start to cover it....

After buying a genuine LP, you'll realise the tonal quality, playing comfort, and amazing versatility is what makes this guitar a legendary instrument.

This thicker 60s neck is super comfortable, good for bigger-handed-folks who sometimes struggle with thin necks. Build quality is top-spec, and the included tools and documentation are bob-on.

Looking forward to getting it down the guitar-shop for a full setup, but out-of-the-box, it sounds great and is 99% there in terms of readiness and tonal accuracy up the neck.

Get it!

Exactly what I wanted
Diatonico 06.07.2020
This instrument is permeated with history and class. The inimitable tone, the legendary sustain, the iconic look.

This is a Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s. You know what that means: a hefty solid body (mine weighs 4.3kg = 9lbs 8oz), thinner 60s style neck, 2 burstbuckers, 2 tone and 2 volume knobs,... Everything you expect.

The Iced Tea finish is gorgeous. It goes from cherry & honey to wine red and deep amber depending on the light. The flame is more subtle & natural (don't expect gaudy tiger stripes) and dances as you play it. But if you like a more obvious flamed maple the Unburst is your best bet.

As this is a handmade instrument, so you will find some very minor flaws that only you will ever notice. That said a little more care could go into these instruments — I don't mind oiling the fretboard, fine-tuning the already great setup and getting rid of the last bit of paint on the binding. But at this price range I shouldn't have to.

I traded in a Gibson Les Paul Classic for this beauty (Thomann was super awesome about that by the way). The Classic sounds and plays nearly just as well. But if you're going to invest in a piece of craftsmanship, you might as wel get EXACTLY what your heart desires.

The guitar!
Allyboss 02.01.2022
I have watched countless musicians throughout the years play one of these and I’ve wanted one since before I could play. My first guitar was an epiphone les Paul. Finally 25 years later I got my hands on the real deal. It plays superbly. It’s tonally more versatile that you would think. I actually use the tone and volume controls on this guitar. It’s heavy but satisfyingly so. Holds its tuning very well and it looks superb. Would I have liked locking tuners? Most likely. I really hate restringing but this is the guitar, and she’s mine.
