Graph Tech Nut

The Graph Tech nut offers increased harmonics in the middle and upper frequency range perfect for a rich and detailed tone. Designed to optimize sustain and response the Graph Tech nut is also self-lubricating which means returning to the original pitch after string bends is extremely quick and accurate.

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 T 2016 produces a rich vintage tone. The Burstbucker Pro 1 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 Pro 2 in the neck position delivers a slightly hotter tone similar to '57 classic pickups.

Push/Pull Coil Tap

Utilizing a pickup push/pull coil tap in both the neck and bridge position the Gibson Les Paul Standard gives you a huge amount of tonal options allowing you to switch the pickup settings from a standard humbucking mode to a single coil with a simple push/pull of the tone control making it an extremely versatile guitar excellent for live situations when an array of tones are required.

Compound Radius Fretboard

The Gibson Les Paul Standard T 2016 incorporates a unique and innovative compound-radius fretboard design, in which 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 classic heel allows sensational accessibility and speedy 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.
