2016 Gibson Les Paul Standard T Light Burst

Gibson Says:

All the ingredients that made the Les Paul name legendary are in the Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 T. This is truly a comprehensively featured, fully loaded Les Paul, with a compound-radius rosewood fingerboard and modern weight relief to provide outstanding balance and playing feel while optimizing the guitar’s celebrated tone.

I Say:

I’ve had quite a few Les Pauls over the years.  My favourite has been my Jimmy Page Les Paul from 1996, down to the neck and pickup options.

Gibson have included most of the features of the Jimmy Page here, added a metal jack plate and locking tuners, bridge and tailpiece. The push/push control knobs do as follows – Neck & Bridge volume coil taps the appropriate pickup.  The neck tone puts the pickups out of phase whereas the Bridge tone bypasses the tone pots all together to give a ‘pure” signal!

The previous owner has upgraded the pickups to Seymour Duncan “Pearly Gates” pickups – about £200 worth of pickups!

The guitar is unmarked, and has a beautiful flame to the maple top.  The original hard case is equally unmarked and has the original paperwork, scratch plate, screws, truss rod adjuster and Gibson cloth in the neck pocket.

Originally these were over £2000.
