2003 Les Paul Standard

Guitar legend Les Paul and Gibson teamed up in 1952 to produce the guitar that set the standard for solidbody electrics. The 2003 Standard sports the smaller, vintage style headstock and "keystone" tuner buttons and is available with a "fat", rounded '50s style neck or a "fast", slim taper '60s style neck. The Standard is outfitted with the new BurstBucker Pro pickups with Alnico V magnets producing the most authentic, vintage Les Paul tone of any previous Standard pickups. They produce more bite and a seductive "airy" tone with both pickups on. The Les Paul Standard is still the Industry Standard. Now available with Desert Burst, Honey Burst, Light Burst, Trans Amber, Wine Red and Heritage Cherry Sunburst finishes.
