Gibson Les Paul 50's Standard - Dark Cherry Burst with Hard Shell Case

Gibson Les Paul 50's Standard (Wildwood Select): A Timeless Classic with Character

Embrace the rich history of Gibson with the Les Paul 50's Standard, a guitar that returns to the classic design that shaped sounds across generations and genres. This Wildwood Select model boasts a solid mahogany body paired with a stunning flame maple top, finished in a vibrant Dark Cherry Burst gloss nitrocellulose that accentuates the wood's natural beauty. 

Premium Features and Vintage Charm

The Les Paul 50's Standard is not only about nostalgic aesthetics but also about superior functionality and performance. It is equipped with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic™ bridge and an aluminum Stop Bar tailpiece for stable tuning and intonation. Vintage Deluxe tuners with Keystone buttons and aged gold Top Hat knobs add to the vintage appeal, complementing the overall classic look. This guitar is ready to deliver powerful tones whether on stage or in the studio, thanks to its premium build quality and careful setup.

Detailed Craftsmanship and Authentic Playability

The guitar's neck is set-neck attached, ensuring a resonant tone and enhanced sustain. The neck profile is a comfortable rounded 50's shape, with depths of .910" at the 1st fret and 1.012" at the highest fret, providing a substantial feel that vintage enthusiasts will appreciate. The 24.75" scale length and 12" radius of the fingerboard offer a familiar playing experience, ideal for both rhythm and lead styles.

Electronically Sound with Historical Overtones

This model features historically inspired pickups; the neck pickup is a "Rhy 59 WW Spec" and the bridge pickup a "Lead 59 WW Spec." Both pickups are uncovered, but the covers are included. These pickups, combined with the standard Gibson wiring and high-quality potentiometers, offer a rich, dynamic range of tones, perfect for everything from blues to rock.
