Burstbucker Pro Humbucking Pickups

Incorporating a set of Burstbucker Pro humbucking pickups designed to recreate the tone of the classic Gibson PAF pickups, the Les Paul Standard 2016 HP produces a rich vintage tone. The Burstbucker in the bridge position provides a medium output with a well-rounded and creamy tone due to the alnico magnets and under-wound construction whilst the Burstbucker in the neck position delivers a slightly hotter tone similar to '57 classic pickups.

Compound Radius Fingerboard

The Gibson Les Paul Standard 2016 HP incorporates a unique and innovative compound-radius fretboard design. The fretboard gradually flattens toward the heel from its more rounded profile at the nut, providing a smooth playability for both chords and riffs whilst the fast-access heel allows sensational accessibility and speed at the high register, perfect for both lead and rhythm players.

Tune-O-Matic Bridge

Tune-O-Matic bridges are an extremely popular fixed bridge type due to their stability, reliability, comfortable playing position and impressive sustain. Additionally adjusting the string action and intonation is extremely simple with a tune-o-matic bridge. Simply adjust the height of the bridge with the mounting rods to alter the action and screw in or out the bridge saddles to achieve perfect intonation.

Professionally Set-Up Straight out the Box

Gibson understand how disheartening it can be when you get a new guitar home just to find out it needs setting up before you can properly reap the benefits. By ensuring that every Gibson 2016 model comes professionally set up straight out the box you can plug in and play to start enjoying the premium build quality and incredible tone of the Gibson 2016 models.
