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 Iced Tea finish with the beautiful Burst (colour gradient), which outstandingly emphasizes the wood grain texture of the maple top.

About Gibson

In its more than 120 year history the US-American manufacturer of the finest instruments has repeatedly proven, that they know exactly, what musicians want and they proceed to offer those products. One of the pieces of evidence for this way of doing things is the Les Paul model, which was developed in the early 1950s in conjunction with the musician and inventor Lester Polsfuss. It constitutes one of the first, true electric guitar models. The fact that one still hears Gibson‘s customers and players everywhere today, is a testament to the dedication Gibson has to working on and providing us musicians with the perfect instrument that we want and need.

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 IT 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, and 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.

holy cow!
pazzer, 16.05.2020
As some would put it:
Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.

There is little to say about this guitar, it just sounds frigging uber!

If you want a daily 'come to jesus' moment with your guitar, buy one of these and plug into a valve-amp. You will never go back.

For those looking at this guitar as a 'financial challenge', don't turn away. There is a reason you started looking at this guitar. The word 'pedigree' doesn't even start to cover it....

After buying a genuine LP, you'll realise the tonal quality, playing comfort, and amazing versatility is what makes this guitar a legendary instrument.

This thicker 60s neck is super comfortable, good for bigger-handed-folks who sometimes struggle with thin necks. Build quality is top-spec, and the included tools and documentation are bob-on.

Looking forward to getting it down the guitar-shop for a full setup, but out-of-the-box, it sounds great and is 99% there in terms of readiness and tonal accuracy up the neck.

Get it!

Gibson Back On Song
KMickP, 10.06.2021
I bought another Gibson guitar which was produced just prior to the management changes in 2019 and if I’m honest the quality of set up was awful, high action tuning issues, sharp frets etc, I was tempted to return it!
No such problems with this purchase, the quality of fit and finish is fantastic and the guitar just looks, plays & sounds first rate! The colour and flame top is stunning! The 60’s neck is slim taper but it’s still pretty substantial, more so that other 60 spec Gibsons I have but that said it feels great. There is a feeling of quality about the controls and they work as they should and are smooth & well calibrated.

Pros
How it looks, plays & sounds
Build Quality
Premium feel
The set up out of the box
Even the case is an upgrade

Cons
None really, but the fretboard needed some oil immediately (2 minute job)
It’s pretty heavy ( this may be a problem for some!)

Exactly what I wanted
Diatonico, 06.07.2020
This instrument is permeated with history and class. The inimitable tone, the legendary sustain, the iconic look.

This is a Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s. You know what that means: a hefty solid body (mine weighs 4.3kg = 9lbs 8oz), thinner 60s style neck, 2 burstbuckers, 2 tone and 2 volume knobs,... Everything you expect.

The Iced Tea finish is gorgeous. It goes from cherry & honey to wine red and deep amber depending on the light. The flame is more subtle & natural (don't expect gaudy tiger stripes) and dances as you play it. But if you like a more obvious flamed maple the Unburst is your best bet.

As this is a handmade instrument, so you will find some very minor flaws that only you will ever notice. That said a little more care could go into these instruments — I don't mind oiling the fretboard, fine-tuning the already great setup and getting rid of the last bit of paint on the binding. But at this price range I shouldn't have to.

I traded in a Gibson Les Paul Classic for this beauty (Thomann was super awesome about that by the way). The Classic sounds and plays nearly just as well. But if you're going to invest in a piece of craftsmanship, you might as wel get EXACTLY what your heart desires.

Simply perfect
Gledison, 27.11.2019
I intended to think that with Gibson we pay for the Brand. The 2019 model
60s has a very comfortable neck, the pickups are creamy as expected, no weight relief and looks simply amazing. I dont know if was lucky but the setup is perfectly done. The strings action is very low without any buzzing at all which makes very easy to play.
Since i got this guitar is being difficult to play the other ones. I totally recomend ! Long live rock n roll
