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 Unburst finish, which looks like a faded burst and 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 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.

Great sound, still quality control problems
Paulis91 19.02.2020
There are not enough words to say how great this guitar looks and sounds like. The "unburst" definitely looks amazing, but the finish is slightly darker than it is shown in the pictures. The hardcase is also awesome. However, I have to say a few other things, not so great things:
- Even though the quality control of the Gibson's has improved, there still are quality control problems. Mine's had a red stain (from the guitar neck finish) on the nut. The stain on the side of the nut is not big, but it can be seen quite clearly. This was a bit disappointing.
- Fretwork also is not a masterpiece. The heights of some frets are uneven. But nothing very bad. More or less, height it was okay.
- The nut was extremely high. I had to take the guitar to the luthier to take care of the nut height.
- The set-up was quite bad also. String action was very high and the 6th and the 5th strings were buzzing on the 3-5th frets. Proper set-up solved these problems.

In general, all of the problems were quite minor and were solved by doing proper set-up (except for the stain on the nut and frets).

Hello. I use this guitar to play in a punk rock band and blues.
The sound of the guitar is amazing, the assembly of the instrument is at the highest level, everything is done according to the canons of this guitar model. The only thing I didn't like was that the tuning pegs on the guitar are very mediocre for such a price, so I had to replace them with Gotoh locks.

Quality beyond my expectations
AkiraS 30.03.2021
I got the guitar expecting minor quality issues, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. I love the smell of the nitrocellulose lacquer. The maple top pieces could have more flame and be better matched though.
