For devoted Gibson Les Paul aficionados, ’50s Standards are, well, the “gold standard.” A 1958 or 1959 sunburst is an instrument of sublime beauty, and models in exceptional shape command astronomical prices. The Gibson Les Paul Standard ’50s Limited Edition evokes the look, feel and sound of these near-unobtainable treasures, and puts the magic into your hands. This celebration of an iconic Les Paul era features a solid mahogany body, plain maple top, rounded-C mahogany neck, 12″ radius rosewood fretboard, 22 medium-jumbo frets and Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) humbuckers.

“Players such as Jimmy Page and Warren Haynes inspired me to pick up a Les Paul,” says Los Angeles guitarist, educator and leader of her own band, Angela Petrilli. “I have a ’59 reissue back home that I absolutely love. Les Pauls are incredibly resonant instruments. You can strum them and get a beautiful rhythm with a big, all-encompassing tone, but you can also get a screaming lead sound if you hit an overdrive pedal. When I play in the rhythm position of a Les Paul, I’m looking for something that is well rounded with a lot of character, but still has enough bite to cut through a mix. In the bridge position, I look for something that really cuts. This guitar gives me the tones I would expect from a ’50s Les Paul Standard.”

    Looks great, sounds great. Prices on Gibsons are still way too high compared to other brands. Worse, they are driving to prices for Epiphone as well, which is an alarming trend. The wood used today came from trees that were harvested years before COVID and worker salaries haven't risen for the cost of living changes so it's simply greed.

    That's how you sell guitars folks. Actually, that is a particularly good sounding example. Someday I'll get a Les Paul. Die hard parts caster person. A Les Paul has that heavy sound a Telecaster is hard pressed to cover.

    Thank you so much for this demo. What a beautiful instrument… I'll probably never be able to afford one, which does not mean I don't appreciate its awesome features, build quality and superb tones. Oh, and its so cool to finally hear someone presenting Les Paul tones playing through (mostly) a clean channel 😉

    I think it’s a great guitar. The pickups are well balanced and the nuances shown while dialing different tones were spot on. Great playing from the very talented Ms. Angela Petrilli too.
