In today’s episode, we take a look at the Brand New 2019 Gibson Les Paul Standard 60s guitar that was released April 29th, 2019. These were touted as the models that would turn Gibson around. Standards are standards again without weight relief! No more fancy electronics, just standard pots.
The 60s version features a slimmer neck profile than the 50s Standard. It also features gold, top hat “reflector” knobs and Grover Tuners.
The bridge is not a real ABR-1 as it is not drilled directly into the top, but uses a post similar to the old Nashville style. These have a short neck tenon as well so all historic owners have nothing to worry about since the historic line up will have that over these models.
I enjoyed this guitar. Gibson still needs to step up their Quality Control game, but when you get a good one – these are great! I would recommend trying one out!
