What Reidys say...
"Yep, you guessed it, this is based on the 1960 Les Paul model. Starting off with a solid mahogany body with a AA figured maple top, rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays, but with a mahogany neck shaped at a skinnier ‘60s Slim Taper profile than on the ‘50s equivalent. The pickups are Burstbucker 61R & 61T loaded with a hotter Alnico V which is period correct, and was the final choice for Gibson's iconic PAF pickup in the golden era. These will deliver a brighter, more pronounced attack and increased sensitivity than the warmed, lower-output Alnico II equivalent found in the Les Paul Standard '50s. The guitars are finished off with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, Grover Rotomatic tuners w/ Kidney Buttons, Gold Top Hat knobs with Silver Reflectors & Pointers and an amber switch cap. Available in Iced Tea, Bourbon Burst and the very classic looking Unburst."
Richard Blenkinsop, Guitar Expert
The new Les Paul Standard returns to the classic design that made it relevant,
played and loved -- shaping sound across generations and genres of music. It pays
tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The
Les Paul Standard 60's has a solid mahogany body with an AA figured maple top,
and a slim taper 60's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and
trapezoid inlays. It's equipped with a classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum
stop bar tailpiece, Grover Rotomatic "Kidney" tuners, and gold top hat knobs with
silver reflectors. The Burstbucker 61R (neck) Burstbucker 61T (bridge) pickups are
loaded with AlNiCo V magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop

While we try our best to ensure rapid delivery of your order, delays may occur which are outside our control, and delivery of large or bulky items, or to remote or non-mainland addresses may take longer than estimated.
Most UK deliveries are shipped by our trusted courier, DPD. You'll receive an email with a delivery day, tracking and a one hour estimated delivery window on the morning of delivery. While we can't specify the time of the delivery, if it's not convenient, you can arrange directly with DPD for an alternative delivery date or request the parcel be left with a neighbour.

Most orders will need to be signed for and we advise you make sure to check your parcel/s for any damage before signing. If no-one is available at your address, a card will be left so you can arrange a re-delivery directly with the courier.
