The Gibson Les Paul standard plus is an exceptional guitar that features a beautiful flamed fingered maple top that mixes very well with the mahogany body in the mahogany neck with the rosewood fretboard. These are some of the best Les Paul that you can buy outside of the heritage vintage modern type Gibson Les Paul that they're currently building or the custom Gibson Les Paul's that they have been doing for years. This is right in the middle of the Les Paul price range when it comes to the intros to the ultra high retail guitars.

This one has an exceptional top that sits on a nice thick mahogany body with a mahogany neck and a rosewood fretboard. A really nice pearl block inlays on the fretboard and also features to volume knobs with two tone control knobs. This is pretty standard set up with Gibson Les Paul's as far as future goes and functionality.

SOUNDS

The tone of the Gibson Les Paul is so iconic and easily recognizable when you hear an album that features this guitar on it. It stands out from the Fender Stratocaster and a Fender telecaster as well as many of the Ibanez guitars. This guitar has a good rock 'n roll tone that doesn't clean up very well when it comes to sparkling chimy clean tones but the high gain tones are one-of-a-kind.

This guitar sits well with a Marshall high gain amplifier very well. It's like the two instruments were just built for each other. They have a awesome connection with the Marshall voicing and the natural tone from this guitar. Throw in a good analog or digital delay and you have a great rock 'n roll tone that will fit well with most music.

OVERALL OPINION

I recommend this guitar to anyone who wants to step into a professional guitar that has a great look up great build for some of the best tones that you can get. At new you can find these guitars for about $2699 which is pretty expensive for most people's budgets. Again this is a guitar that is marketed towards someone who is either professional or knows exactly what they want and has the money to do it. This is a rock 'n roll guitar and a players guitar for sure and it is not a custom showroom piece. This guitar will treat you well night after night of digging and will be a great companion to your rest to your guitar rig.
