The back some light scratches as well. It comes with the pickguard but it has not been drilled for one yet. It has the original Gibson PAF Burstbucker Pro pickups and they sound really nice. She has a fresh set up with d'addario 10/46 and plays beautifully.
The 60's neck profile feels very comfy and the frets are in excellent condition. Here's the spec's. All the sumptuous ingredients that makes the Les Paul name great are in the 2012 Gibson Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar in spades: your choice of a skillfully carved plain or AAA figured maple top on a mahogany back perfectly joined to a mahogany neck, Burstbucker Pro pickups each fitted with coil-split capability, locking tuning machines, and neck and body binding, this is truly a full-featured, loaded Les Paul and now features a compound-radius rosewood fretboard.Also, new modern weight relieving is carefully applied inside the mahogany back to provide outstanding balance while optimizing the sonic capabilities of the guitar. Gibson' drive to recapture the magic of the original Patent Applied For humbucker pickups of the 1950s culminated with the introduction of the Burstbucker line in the early 1990s. The Burstbucker Pro features an Alnico V magnet (instead of the Alnico II), which offers slightly higher output and allows preamps to be driven a little harder to achieve a more natural break-up.
Like all Burstbuckers, the Burstbucker Pro has asymmetrical coilstrue to the original PAFswhich supply a more open sound. The Burstbucker Pro Neck is wound slightly less than the original PAFs, while the Burstbucker Pro Bridge is slightly overwound for increased output. The Burstbucker Pro pickups are also wax potted to allow loud volume pressures with minimal feedback. A high-quality Switchcraft output jack ensures a perfect connection to your cable allowing the purest signal to leave the guitar. In addition to controlling tone, one is a phase switch which allows for new tonal flavors, especially when used in combination with the coil-splitting feature.
The bridge and neck pickups can each be split via their own push/pull switch on the volume knob to achieve a single-coil tone. This coil-tapping function allows you to instantly achieve brighter, snappier tones from this humbucker-loaded guitar, to replicate the sounds of other classic guitars equipped with single-coil pickups, and to return to the Les Paul Standard's thick, warm, powerful, full-humbucking tone at the push of a knob. Frequency-tuned Fat Tap coil tapping creates a fatter single coil tone with great output and balance when switching from dual to single coils. Single coil configurations are specially designed to be hum-reducing.
The 2012 Les Paul Standard is fitted with Gibson' classic 60s slim-taper neck profile, which is the more modern, slim-tapered neck most commonly associated with the Les Paul and SG models of the early 1960s. A compound radius rosewood fingerboard allows for comfort, speed and precision at all points up and down the neck.
It accommodates lower string height while achieving unrestricted, smooth, upper-register string bending. The 2012 Les Paul Standard is outfitted with locking tuners from Grover, which deliver ease of use through a standard tuner and positive locking mechanism that securely locks each string in place. Simply insert each string through the string hole, turn the dial on the bottom of the tuner to lock the string, and begin tuning.
