What Reidys say...

"The 2018 Gibson Les Paul Standard High Performance represents the next stage of evolution for this legendary guitar, and is absolutely packed full of nifty features designed to make guitarists' lives easier. Like the regular LP Standard, you've got push and pull knobs to split the coils however, unique to the HP is the DIP switch inside that gives you up to 150 different wiring variations - did someone say versatile? If you want classic Les Paul tone, worry not - this guitar will give you that amongst everything else.

The High Performance also features a slightly wider neck (1.745" at nut) giving you a bit more surface to play on. It's not quite as wide as it was in 2015, but wide enough to notice a difference. I find it very comfortable - chords just seem to ring out really well and lead lines area a bit easier to pick out. The neck profile is the tried and tested Asymmetrical Slim Taper, which is a little thinner on the treble side. The HP Les Paul Standard has an adjustable titanium nut making tweaks to your action much easier and quicker, which, paired with titatnium saddles also maximise string resonanace.

You'll notice the incredible top on this - AAA+ figured maple which is shown off by all the finishes (Hot Pink Fade is exclusive to the HP range). The Gibson 2018 Les Paul Standard High Performance also comes supplied with a really high quality hard case."

Richard Blenkinsop, Guitar Expert
