Ridiculously gorgeous. Unbelievably versatile.
The flagship of our High Performance lineup, the new Les Paul Standard 2017 HP is the most luxurious and groundbreaking Les Paul Standard ever made. A super exclusive AAAA flamed maple top, premium chrome hardware, beautiful nitro finish, and genuine Mother of Pearl inlays deliver the luxury. Extreme performance comes from the prominent use of aluminum, steel, and titanium hardware (replacing traditional and tonally-inferior Zamac); an innovative Fast-Access heel and Soloist's neck width and asymmetrical slim-taper profile; and a revolutionary new re-wiring system that allows over 150 fully reversible sonic options from the PAF-inspired Burstbucker Rhythm Pro and Lead Pro pickups. Ultimately, the Les Paul Standard 2017 HP might look like the finest Les Paul you've ever laid eyes on, but it plays, feels, and sounds like nothing you've ever laid hands on.
Delivered in a Gibson High Performance super premium stamped aluminum case, along with a Gibson premium leather strap, a Gibson multi-tool and a polishing cloth.
