Home > Guitars > Electric Guitars > LES PAUL Models

Usually from Gibson itself but, of course, all borrowed types and sometimes absolutely equivalent copies apply here as well. Characteristics: Humbuckers and a fat and heavy body which tends to make it sound fatter without lacking a decent amount of treble and bite. The construction of the guitar is responsible for the sound which usually means a mahogany body with a sized maple top that’s about one inch thick at the highest point. The bridge pickup provides the classic rock sound, while it gets bluesy round the neck (less gain on your amp, please). A headstrong hollow tone means the intermediate position is suitable for both clean and distorted sounds. By the way, the less husky PAF pickups (which are available under miscellaneous names by almost any brand) still suit a Les Paul best, although Gibson has started building in louder gauges recently as well.

Sometimes people accuse the Les Paul of not being as versatile as other guitars but with its three pickup positions together with the separate tone and volume controls for each pickup (a simple preset option if you like – a real blessing, especially playing live) it is capable of producing quite a few different sounds. The alleged limits concerning its possibilities are, in the end, in the ear of the beholder.

Besides, the classic rock sound (or at least one important type of rock) is made by using a Les Paul and a tube amp stack at full blast.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO 50’S TRIBUTE HUMBUCKER

    Released midway through 2010, the Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute packed the stripped-down appeal of the long-running Studio line in a great ’50s-themed model with P-90 pickups that was a major hit with players everywhere, and sold out quickly as a result. Now the Les Paul Studio ’50s Tribute Humbucker from Gibson USA captures the same popular look and feel, updated with the PAF-style humbucking pickups that hit the Les Paul model later that decade. Being introduced first at Thomann, this is sure to be one of the most desirable formats introduced to the Les Paul Studio series since its inception in 1983.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO PRO PLUS

    The original idea for the Gibson Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar was to create a somewhat lower-priced Paul by dispensing with some cosmetics. The result was an especially clean, handsome guitar with all the Les Paul essentials. The Les Paul Studio Pro Plus steps up its game and narrows the gap with a potent humbucker combo of BurstBucker Pro in the bridge and 490R in the neck that deliver warm rhythm and hot, solid lead sounds with the added tonal flexibility of coil-splitting. Hallmark Les Paul features include a set mahogany neck with ’60s SlimTaper profile, rosewood fingerboard, and mahogany body with a AA flamed maple top with your choice of nitro finishes.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL BFG GATOR

    The Les Paul BFG Gator has a fun and effective "kill switch" in the usual position of the three-way selector puts plenty of new tricks up this BFG’’s sleeve, while the inclusion of a pair of pickups that represent the best of Gibson’’s innovative history provides a surprisingly wide range of sweet and snarling voices. Wrap it all in a stunning Gator Green nitrocellulose finish complemented by black-plated hardware, a green Gibson logo, and a markerless fingerboard, and you’’ve got a stunning new addition to the Les Paul BFG family.

  • GIBSON BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG LES PAUL JUNIOR

    Simple, straightforward, and to-the-point rock tone : that’s why Billie Joe rocks a vintage Junior and why you’ll love the Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior electric guitar. Billie Joe’s signature model is a modern re-creation of the vintage Juniors he plays on stage. While the Junior may have started life as a budget model, it has proven it has the muscle to deliver the powerful sounds needed for modern music. The flat-top, single-cutaway mahogany body and single dog-ear, double-coil H-90 pickup combination is unbeatable for punchy, defined-yet-dirty tone. The mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard (ebony on classic white model) and ’1960 slim-tapered neck profile is comfy and gives you something solid to hold on to. It also has a wraparound compensated bridge, nickel tuners, and volume and tone controls.

  • GIBSON JONAS BROTHERS MELODY MAKER

    To celebrate the success of Jonas Brothers, Gibson USA has created this special Jonas Brothers Melody Maker, a guitar designed in the image of the original single—cutaway Melody Maker of 1959/’60, but with popular upgrades to solidify its status as a genuine tone machine. For several years, players in the know have turned to the Melody Maker as an accessible piece of genuine Gibson tonal splendor, and added their own slight modifications to turn this entry—level guitar into a true rock monster.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL SLASH APPETITE

    The Gibson Slash Appetite Les Paul is patterned after Slash played on the famous Guns N’ Roses Appetite For Destruction album and remains his main recording guitar. To honor this achievement, Gibson introduces the Slash Appetite Les Paul, a guitar equipped with the finest features of the original Les Paul Standards of 1958-’60, and the added punch of Seymour Duncan Signature Series Alnico II Pro Slash humbucking pickups.

  • GIBSON LES PAUL STUDIO 60’S TRIBUTE

    In honor of the final incarnation of the original Les Paul, Gibson USA is proud to present the acclaimed Les Paul Studio in an exciting new package. The new Les Paul Studio ’60s Tribute model embodies the look and tone of the great original Les Pauls from the 1960s, at a price that fits the wallets of today’s hardworking musicians.

  • EPIPHONE LES PAUL STANDARD ROYALE


    The Les Paul Standard Royale has all the classic features of an Epiphone Les Paul but with a gold pickguard, gold covered Alnico Classic Humbuckers, gold Grover® machine heads, gold strap button, gold LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and gold LockTone™ Stopbar tailpiece.

  • EPIHONE LES PAUL ULTRA II


    First, the new Ultra-II is all Les Paul. It’s pair of Alnico Classic magnetic humbucking pickups combined with traditional LP design let’s you rock like legendary Les Paul players. However, the Ultra’s body is strategically chambered to not only reduce the weight, but to add subtle acoustic overtones. Taking advantage of this design, Epiphone teamed up with the premier German acoustic pickup maker, Shadow to take the Ultra to the next level. The result is the Ultra-II.

  • EPIHONE LES PAUL STANDARD

    Now, the classic look of the ’plain’ maple top is available to go with the classic Les Paul Sound. This understated look is preferred by many Les Paul fanatics. It still has everything you need in a Les Paul: the Solid Mahogany body, Maple top, Alnico V Humbucker pickups and the Tune-o-matic bridge/Stopbar tailpiece combo for monstrous sustain.
