Sold! Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top Heritage Cherry Burst, 2007

Instrument Categories: , , ,

Gibson has been quietly building Les Paul Standard Plus Top since about 2002, with the ‘Plus’ referring to the quality and amount of figure on the carved Maple top. Many of these models are also weight relieved, with slimmer ‘1960s’ profile necks and are very good instruments, not just beautiful pieces of functional art.

Here we’re treated to a pristine Gibson Les Paul Standard Plus Top with Heritage Cherry sunburst finish. This guitar dates to June 27th, 2007 at the Nashville plant – before the devastating floods.

The actual model number from the (included) QC check tag is LPG+HSNH1, which likely expands to ‘Les Paul Guitar Heritage Sunburst Nickel Hardware’. The 1 is unknown but could refer to the Nashville location.

This example is weight relieved and is very comfortable to stand with. Otherise, it is built in the traditional manner for a Les Paul: Solid Mahogany back, carved Maple cap, Mahogany for the neck and a bound Indian Rosewood fingerboard. nitrocellulose lacquer finish is a lovely. darker Heritage Cherry Sunburst, and is in great condition.   The top is quite figured, and as is natural for ‘flame maple’, the figuring or curl is not entirely level and this is seen through the finish – particularly in reflection.   The top isn’t dead-smooth because of the natural properties of the woods used.  

For hardware, the tuners are Kluson style Gibson Deluxe models with greenish plastic keystone buttons. These tuners work well, and also are one of the physically lighter sets, and that helps with balance. The stop tailpiece and modern Tune-O-Matic are nickel plated, as are the pickup covers. The electronics, as all the other components except perhaps the strings, are entirely original.

This guitar is in very good condition with only the slightest wear.

The original Gibson case by TKL is included, and contains the original manual, QC tag and the un-mounted pickguard.
