It pays tribute to Gibson's Golden Era of innovation and brings authenticity back to life. The Les Paul Standard 50's has a solid mahogany body with a maple top, a rounded 50's-style mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard and trapezoid inlays. It's equipped with an ABR-1, the classic-style Tune-O-Matic bridge, aluminum stop bar tailpiece, vintage deluxe tuners with keystone buttons, and amber top hat knobs. The calibrated Burstbucker 1 (neck) and Burstbucker 2 (bridge) pickups are loaded with AlNiCo II magnets, audio taper potentiometers and orange drop capacitors.

I purchased this guitar last September, it works well so far and I love it. But there are 2 things you need to know before you purchase, first, Gibson stop using AAA FLAME MAPLE top for their lp std. From my experience, it doesn't sound different. But if you prefer the classic flame maple look, there is a AAA option and you need to spend hundreds more on it. The second thing is this guitar is a product, not an artwork. I do notice a small crack on my Pickup Ring after I went back home. It is a small crack beside the screw hole. Since it does not affect the sound, I just leave it be.

I have been eying up Les Pauls for a few years now, but never really felt impressed with the build quality. Friends told me Gibson is back - my friends were right. Went to L&M with the intention to check out one of the 1960s Standard models, but went with the 1950s model. Surprisingly, I found the thicker neck quite comfortable. It is much thicker than I'm used to, but it feels good. I think it is fair to say, I didn't know good sound until I plugged this beauty into my rig at home. Such a full, broad and balanced sound with tons of sustain - well, guess that is the LP sound advantage. Quality is top notch, the case is beautiful and the guitar looks stunning. Many people say Gibsons are overpriced, maybe that applied 3-4 years ago, but the current lineup is high quality and the price compares favourable to alternative LP-style guitars in the premium segment. It is a Gibson, alright.

Finally after 1 year and a half I finally got my dream guitar, and it definitely lives up to the hype. Everything sounds perfect from the cleans all the way up your lead tone. Neck is nice and beefy, tone and volume knobs work as there're supposed to, feels great and offers great playability. If you are still skeptical try one out for yourself, it's the only way these guitars can be done justice. Big thanks to Rory from the Mississauga location! Very helpful and patient. Keep up the great work. :)

I bought this guitar at the Markham location with my friend Rick. Wasn't expecting to walk away with a guitar that day but good friends encourage you. It plays like a dream - it weighs in at about 10-ish pounds and the top is perfectly flamed. The neck is quite beefy and allows you to get your hands on it. (not as beefy as a 58 but still quite beefy) The orange drop capacitors allow for the pots to be audio tapered. 4 sounds like 4, 8 sounds like 8, and 10 roars like a lion in heat. The neck pickup feels like butter and the bridge has a lot of bite. It's an amazing guitar and I'm really thankful I own one. I never found a Les Paul that I really loved or had enough money for one - but this one was the one. Gibson had a lot of quality control issues in the past - The one I grabbed was perfect. No tooling marks - no nothing. If you are interested in one of these - I would 10/10 recommend it.

Finally Picked up a Standard 50s in Heritage Cherry Burst around 3 months ago from L&M Brampton. Have not done the free setup that comes with the guitar yet, but it sounds and plays terrific out of the box. Slight bit of fret buzzing on the upper greys that should disappear once a set-up is complete. The only other issue I have is I believe the toggle switch is most likely wired incorrectly on mine (so much for quality control, wonder if anyone else with this model has the same issue) The Rhythm seems to control the Bridge Pickup and the Treble controls the Neck Pickup. Will hopefully get this fixed when I take it in for a setup. Other than that the sounds that this guitar is capable of producing with tweaks to the tone and volume are phenomenal.

Got this guitar exactly two months ago from L&M. Amazing instrument! Previously was so put off by chambering and other questionable things Gibson did to their Gibson USA line and finally!!! I was considering getting a Traditional - yet having compared to the new '50s Standard - Traditional fell short in the neck department - it is somewhat substantial- but still like a symbiosis between 50s and 60s profile - when you compare the two the new '50s is by far superior - it is the '59 neck profile. No chambering, great weight, delicate AA burst ("mine is Heritage Cherry), fantastic medium output pickups that bark and roar while letting dynamics through - well done, Gibson, well, well done! P.S. Re: new Gibson hardshell case - "Bring back the 'blanket'!" :)

I have considered a Les Paul for my home studio for many years and finally pulled the trigger on this one, my other choice was an 79 original used $4000-6000 !! I was put off from some of the production flaws Ive seen and heard about. This is definitely not the case with this guitar ! Right out of the box it was set up perfectly, no flaws or blemishes, fits case snugly with all the case candy-yes case candy was there(strap, warranty card, inspection check w/picture, tools etc). Plugged it in to my DR Z MAZ 18jr and sonic bliss was achieved immediately. Plays beautifully, has some weight to it but feels like a real guitar, sounds great clean or crunchy. Don’t hesitate if your looking you won’t be disappointed.

Purchased this a couple of weeks back at the Kingston store. Gibson seems to have improved their quality on these new models. The one I have is basically flawless, great setup and finish. I also own a 1958 reissue from the custom shop and aside from some cosmetic differences and the pickups, there really isn't a whole lot of difference. I couldn't say that about the previous standards. I don't think you will be disappointed with this guitar. The staff at the Kingston store are always accommodating and great to work with.

Just purchased from Paul at the Hamilton store. Top-notch service, no pressure at all. He helped me find exactly what suited me. I especially like the neck pickup for rhythm. Full, thick and creamy sounding. And it's beautiful, with a flawless finish. (I almost wish it had a few minor blemishes to indicate 'hand-built'). Nope. Flawless indeed. I've always been a "Fender guy", but the sound of this guitar is magnificent. Totally worth it. I looked into getting a Les Paul after watching a YouTube factory tour of the Nashville factory. I'm thrilled at the direction Gibson has taken after their re-structure. They're actually listening to what the customers want. This guitar is as genuine 1950's as you can get with no extras bells and whistles that nobody wants (robotuners, dipsswitches, push/pull pots etc.). Awesome work Gibson!!

I just walked in the door after buying a 2019 Heritage Cherryburst Les Paul Standard from Long & McQuade South in Calgary. The guitar is flawless and sounds sooo good through my Fender tube amp! It has some real grunt along with the crisp/mellow or anything in-between clean sounds, and I haven't even plugged it into any effects pedals yet. This guitar is everything I ever wanted in a Les Paul. The guitar sitting with the sun glinting off of it is gorgeous, and a work of art IMO The service at L&Q is second to none. Huge thanks to Hari who never pressured me, he just made sure I had the right guitar, and then ticked off every box in terms of customer satisfaction. Very cool guy and a great experience buying my first LP. OK, back to playing!!!

 More details

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
