What a guitar – the Gibson Les Paul design hasn’t remained largely unchanged for 60 years for no reason. This one is based on the Les Paul Standard – the model that the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton used so famously throughout the late 60s and early 70s. The unique construction of a mahogany body and neck, maple cap and Gibson PAF-style humbuckers gives this guitar it’s richness, those legendary creamy tones, and unending sustain. Only Gibson makes a guitar that sounds like this!

They are ultimately a musicians guitar; one for gigging and recording. Nothing impresses the crowd than the real thing, and short of robbing Jimmy Page’s house, this is the closest you’ll get to a genuine ‘real-deal’ Les Paul.

But despite all this, and despite still being 100% made in the United States, the 60s tribute Les Paul is not too expensive. They can sometimes be found under $1300 (check the current price at Musicians Friend). A very serious guitar at a super-reasonable price; and like all Gibsons, they keep their price for resale (or go up if you keep them long enough!); after all Gibson is a byword for quality, and quality always sells.
