It begins at the neck, which features an enlarged neck tenon for maximum wood contact, and a new asymmetrical neck profile that makes it one of the most comfortable and playable necks ever offered. Locking Grover tuners with an improved gear ratio of 18 1 are also a first for the Les Paul. Custom-made, gold-plated potentiometers made by Bourns, give the Les Paul 2008 Standard a new level of sonic clarity and intensity

The Les Paul Standard 2008 is also one of the first Gibson USA models to utilize the revolutionary Plek system-a computer-controlled setup that carefully measures and dresses each fret, accurately measuring the height between the fingerboard and each string, virtually eliminating string buzz and providing unbeatable playability. A set of Gibson's Burstbucker Pro humbuckers deliver the powerful punch expected from a Les Paul, faithfully capturing the magic of Gibson's legendary PAF pickups of the 1950s. A chambered mahogany body gives the 2008 Standard enhanced resonance, and a plain or flame maple top pays homage to the iconic Les Pauls of the late 1950s.

Other new features include TonePros' locking Nashville Tune-o-matic and stopbar tailpiece, strap lock buttons, and each one comes with Gibson USA's standard black snakeskin case. Play the new Les Paul Standard 2008 from Gibson USA and experience the evolution of the greatest electric guitar of all time
