The Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar first made the scene in 1954, coming in a single finish, sunburst, and becoming one of the most collectible guitars of all time. Although the 1959 version is rare, there are many other fine examples of vintage Gibson Les Paul Standard guitars available for guitarists to consider. The guitar features a single cutaway, slim tapered neck, rosewood fingerboard, and a pair of BurstBucker Pro humbucking pickups. With 50-plus years of manufacture there are a number of different finish options, with some of the most popular being heritage cherry sunburst, vintage sunburst honey burst, tea burst, desert burst, translucent amber, vintage white, ebony, and the granddaddy of them all, gold top. The majority of the guitars come with figured maple tops or solid maple tops and mahogany backs. Although certain Les Paul guitars can be pricey, especially for older options, some vintage Les Paul Standard guitars are affordable for many budgets. Search through the vast inventory on eBay for a guitar that meets your budget, and you can soon be strumming your new axe like other rockers who adore the guitar as much as you do, such as Jeff Beck, Ace Frehley, Billy Gibbons, Dave Grohl, and Mark Knopfler.
