Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard

The Gibson 2008 Les Paul Standard features a hand-carved figured maple top with matched chambered mahogany back outlined with single-ply binding. The neck is crafted from a single piece of mahogany, making it function as a single unit with the body. Its asymmetrical shape is the most comfortable neck offered on a Les Paul Standard. The BurstBucker Pro humbuckers have Alnico V magnets with windings to deliver an enhanced tone with more bite and brilliance.
