by Gibson

$3,495.00 21021


Anyone who has researched the model range of Gibson Les Pauls in recent times knows there are dozens of variations of this all time classic electric guitar. And it’s a given that some are better than others. This is one of the better ones.

The Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus officially debuted in 1995 featuring a traditional deep body carve, 60s taper neck profile and a AAA figured maple top that elevated it above its “Standard” brethren.

This one features a nicely figured top in beautiful Honeyburst with cream binding.

This the last year of the “good spec” LP Standards. It is non-chambered, normal neck carve, hand wired, non-circuit board electronics, vintage style tuners, a fabulous one piece solid mahogany back, and chrome hardware. And that very pretty figured maple top.

Although this guitar is over 15 years old, it has been beautifully looked after and presents in almost new condition. Apart from a couple of tiny dents and a light scratch on the back, this guitar shows no visible player wear. Top, sides & neck are totally unmarked. This guitar has had no changes or modifications since the day it came into being in 2005.

Its cream pickguard has never been fitted but it is in the case.

The “LP5+” stamp in the rear pickup cavity confirms the model identification. Most importantly, this Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus plays every bit as nice as she looks.

The 60's neck carve is super comfortable. Medium low action with no buzz or fretouts even when bending way up anywhere.

The Reissue “Patent Applied For” Alnico V pickups have excellent tone and big output. The guitar is equipped with Kluson style vintage tuners which provide stable tuning. This is a fine looking, great playing and sweet sounding instrument.

Comes in its original Gibson hard shell case with inner shroud in excellent condition.
