"I love your mouth and tongue"
To give the Les Paul Standard a rich sound without excessive weight, Gibson began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select maple top and adding weight-relieving chambers. Sweetwater guitarists love the LP warmth without a sore shoulder. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound. The Les Paul Standard features a 10"" compound-radius fretboard for ultimate playability. The fingerboard is rounder near the nut for easy chord grabbing and rhythm playing. As your playing heats up and moves up the fretboard, the radius flattens out for easier runs and big, big string bends.
