It doesn't get more classic than this

There are very few guitar models indeed, that have influenced and changed generations of players and even the entire history of music. Gibson‘s Les Paul definitively belongs to this extremely short list. Naturally, in the almost 70 year history of this model, there were diverse variations on the classic themes. Yet, in the end, the players want instruments that are made as exactly as possible as they were made in the late 1950s and early 1960s. This is just what you are getting here, so that you can add your contribution to the history of electric guitars – of course these guitars are only made in the best possible quality as well as being made in the USA.

The perfect Rock guitar - and so much more

To try and acquaint a guitar player with the Gibson Les Paul model is pretty much like „carrying water to the sea“. Anyone who has even a passing interest as far as the history of the electric guitar goes, or anyone who notices which instruments famous musicians play, simply can not help but be aware of this true classic. In these cases one often ends up noticing Rock players such as Slash, Peter Frampton as well as more modern bands such as In Flames. Yet what is often overlooked, is that a Paula is very flexible companion and also performs admirably in other styles of music. Thanks to its outstanding wooden foundation, the genius as well as legendary construction and its great hardware it is simply a fantastic electric guitar. Period!

For guitar players who want to develop their playing with their instrument over the years

In these times of continual, technical innovations it is easy for people to forget that at its core playing guitar is a down-to-earth, manual craft and experience. If you are looking for an instrument that you can command as a player but which will also support you and the development of your playing and your own, unique style, then this is exactly the right instrument for you. It is not for nothing that the Gibson Les Paul is an evergreen classic, which is highly rated and beloved by millions of musicians throughout the whole world. Besides all that, it simply looks killer – including in the dark Bourbon Burst finish, which strongly emphasizes the wood grain texture of the maple top.

About Gibson

The Gibson Guitar Corporation was founded in 1902 by Orville Gibson and has its headquarters in Nashville, USA. Gibson is world famous and is loved by many musicians for its cult-status instruments. From 1936 onwards, the firm built the first mass-produced electric guitar - the ES-150. The “Les Paul”, one of the first solid-body electric guitars, followed in 1952 and remains hugely popular to this day, in great part thanks to the “humbucker” pickups installed from 1957 onwards. The range has expanded over the years to include such well-known guitar models as the SG, the Flying V, and the ES-335, as well as bass guitars and acoustic guitars including the Thunderbird bass and the Hummingbird dreadnought. Well-known artists such as Pete Townshend, Slash, Angus Young, Tony Iommi, B.B. King, Michael Patrick Kelly, and Nikki Sixx, swear by Gibson guitars.

Work on your own truly personal voice and sound

When you, as a guitar player, wish to become better and to develop your unique personal sound you will need a partner which provides the best foundation and an expansive flexibility. Exactly all that is what the Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s UB does perfectly. Of course, when you „only“ want to fire off rocking riffs and creamy lead sounds at your audience, you are also in the perfect position with this instrument. However, with such a high calibre instrument, it really pays off to intensively concern yourself with exploring all the possibilities and sounds that both Burstbuckers offer as well as using the 3 way toggle switch and experimenting with the two Volume controls and two Tone controls they offer. With these you can perfectly deliver all sounds, from Funk to Jazz all the way to the heaviest Metal. Above all, you and your guitar can develop together and become an unbeatable team.

Very poorly finished guitar, very disappointed
Kevin65 12.11.2021
On inspecting my new guitar I found the following issues:
binding very badly finished with small gouges out of the fretboard, rough frets, bits of dried polishing compound stuck to the lacquer, some fisheye marks in the lacquer, top of headstock poorly finished, control cavity cover plate fitted crooked, a shallow indentation in the wood at the back of the body, some marks on the bridge pickup cover. My 2017 Les Paul Classic T has none of these issues. The guitar is sitting in its box in the hall ready to be returned tomorrow. I was really looking forward to this purchase, to say I am disappointed is an understatement and would not purchase a new Gibson again unless I could inspect it first as Gibson quality control can't be trusted unfortunately.

JA
Gibson les Paul QC issues
James AR 10.12.2021
I received The gibson les paul standard 60s bourbon burst guitar from thomann but it has so many blemishes and defective from factory in so many areas in the guitar which is not acceptable for the guitar in this price range or even in cheap guitars as follw.
(so I am not blaming thomann)
1- the volume knob reflector piece fall off when I take out the guitar from the case.
2- small white spot under the clear coat finish.
3- Fretboard binding has scratches in several places and some of them not finished properly and the frets nips at the upper register frets from the 19th fret up to last fret as you see in the pictures.
4- the paint job is very poor around the neck meets the body and the binding joint it has orange peel feeling and looks ugly as you can see in the pitures.
5- the nut have some parts flaking off the nut under the strings as you can see.
6- the headstock have also bad painting job and orange peel with bubbles.
7- the body over all have some light scratches on several places also.

in conclusion what happened at the end I asked thomann to return it and send me replacement they refused they told me i can return it back for full refund because this is normal quality for gibson guitars finishing will show some blemishes or I can keep it and to send me partial refund 30 euros only for the knobs so I prefer to keep it as It is my dream guitar and this is the third time ordering les paul online the previous times i purchased them from different sellers and i returned because of QC issues and I am really in love gibson les paul so this time will be the last time purchasing gibson guitars specially from online stores so I kept the guitar cause i am afraid to return it back and receive another one with worse QC issues and also because I paid 260 euros for the custom in my country which not returnable and I've taken it to a luthier in my country to fix some of the issues and that also cost me another 260 euros cause and now the guitar in better condition but not perfect.

Excellent quality and fast shipping despite covid-19 situation
Marc78 12.05.2020
My LP was delivered in impeccable condition, I carefully checked every parts of the guitar's body, assembly, finishing etc... No issues to report. The box is sealed out of Gibson's factory.
In my opinion, the guitar was setup optimally out of the factory.

Somehow the Bourbon Burst's colour tones appear lighter in the flesh than in pictures. It is closer to Ice Tea than it is to Tobacco burst, so not straight in the middle of these tones as I expected it to be. But it's not an issue, and depends on the amount and type of light projecting on the guitar.

I took a bit of a gamble ordering the guitar through UPS during this covid-19 situation. Thomann was extremely fast in handling the shipment, UPS was a little slower than usual out of Germany probably due to custom.
Therefore I will say that it is safe to order during this pandemic lock-down, provided that you consult UPS' website pages describing the shipping situation in your country.

I'm not going to comment on the reasons to buy a Gibson LP and a particular model over an another, at this price range you should know what you are doing in your choice of guitar.

A total dream machine!
KiddiSturlu 21.09.2021
After years of denying myself a Les Paul due to the fact that I own quite a lot of guitars I had been searching a lot for the last few months for one. I decided to take a chance and buy this excellent piece of brilliance from Thomann without testing first. There were slight shipping delays but not as much as the sales rep had warned me so I was pleasantly surprised when the courier rang my doorbell last thursday and delivered it to me.

I haven´t been able to put it down ever since!

The tone, resonance, feel, look, weight and every aspect of this instrument is perfect.

The pickups have a phenomenal output and full bodied sound that sound beutiful in all my amps and my various other equipment like the headrush pedalboard.

The service from Thomann was fantastic as usual.

Thank you for a dream come true :)
