Gibson has updated the Les Paul Standard for 2012.
Last updated in 2008, the 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard now comes loaded with a pair of Burstbucker Pro Split Coil pickups. Push-pull volume and tone controls give access to coil-split sounds and, via the neck pickup’s tone control, a phase switch and via the bridge tone control, a bypass function that sends the signal from the bridge Burstbucker to the output jack for “an extra kick of aggression.”
The neck has a '60s profile with a compound radius, genuine rosewood fingerboard, while the body is weight relieved, Gibson says.
The following pricing and finishes are rumoured, but unconfirmed: Blue Mist, Ebony, Goldtop (£1899)
'Premium Plus Top’ finishes at £1999: Trans Black, Desert Burst (Lefthand option), Fireball (LH option), Honeyburst (LH option), Heritage Cherry Sunburst (LH option), Lightburst (LH option), Trans Amber (LH option), Tea Burst (LH option).
More details soon.
